Meridian - Meridian Community College baseball standout, Kace Garner, has signed a national letter of intent with Mississippi State University.

Kace was voted team captain and picked right up where he left off last season. When the season ended early, Kace was batting .368 with 2 home runs and 10 RBIs.
Head coach Dillon Sudduth said, "We are so proud of Kace continuing his career at Mississippi State. He's earned this opportunity and, through his hard work, has turned himself into an SEC player. Players like Kace are what our program is about, and we know he will carry that with him and experience a lot of success as a Bulldog."
Kace said, "I appreciate my coaches and my teammates at Meridian Community College for supporting me and giving me a chance to pursue this opportunity in both academics and athletics."
