Eagle Eye Promposal Contest: Scoring a Home Run to Prom


Sophmore Cory Lehman is the starting catcher on the varsity baseball sqaud.  After a win at Phillipsburg, junior Laura Gunter asked him to prom with a sign saying “Hey #33 you’re a catch! Prom?” Gunter decided to ask Lehman because they are great friends, and “he is a cutie.” She put effort into making this sign so his night at prom would be special.
