Former Jackson High School baseball standout Justice Crosnoe recently signed to play for his remaining three seasons of college baseball with NCAA Division II McKendree University in Lebanon, Illinois.

Crosnoe played this past season at Southwestern Illinois College. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, his season was cut short following four games.

As a senior at Jackson, Crosnoe was a Missouri 5A All-State second baseman, the Nolan Weber Leadership Award winner, and an All-Conference second baseman in both his junior and senior seasons.

Crosnoe also was named All-District in each of his final two seasons with the Indians.

McKendree competes in the Great Lakes Valley Conference with Missouri programs Lindenwood, Drury, Missouri S&T, Rockhurst, William Jewell, Maryville, Missouri-St. Louis, Truman State, and Southwest Baptist.

The Bearcats were 2-1 in the GLVC this past season and tied for third place in the 16-team league when the 2020 season was ended.
