The Tyrone Golden Eagle Baseball team is having one of its best seasons in years, currently leading the Mountain League with a 13-2 record. Senior Cory Lehman has been one of the anchors of the team for the past several years.  And while his current focus is leading his team deep into the PIAA playoffs, Lehman also recently decided that he will continue his academic and baseball career at Penn State DuBois in the fall.

Lehman has been a huge contributor to the Tyrone baseball program’s recent success and he is excited to play a similar role at the collegiate level.

“It means the world to me,” said Lehman, “I get to start getting ready for my future while I am also playing the game I love.”

Lehman currently has a .347 career varsity average with 34 runs batted in. Catching has been his primary position but he has also helped the Golden Eagles out on the mound from time to time. At Penn State DuBois, however, Lehman is ready to play where they need him.

Tyrone Head Coach Kevin Soellner is excited that his everyday catcher will get to play collegiate baseball.

“I think it’s wonderful for Cory to continue to play baseball beyond high school,” said Tyrone head coach Kevin Soellner, “I think most kids dream of playing a sport at the next level. He has done the work to get the opportunity to play four more years.”

Lehman will be joining a very successful baseball program. Penn State Dubois has finished in first in their division in each of the past four years culminating in a Small College World Series title last season.

The thing that excites Lehman the most is the new family he will be a part of. “It’s a nice campus with a lot to do,” Lehman added, “the baseball program is phenomenal.”

Overall, the Lions have amassed a record of 24-12 going 13-2 in conference play this season. This includes a 30-0 blowout of Butler County Community College back on March 20. This performance was followed again by a shutout of Penn State New Kensington, 15-0.

Lehman looks to be part of the onslaught next season and he very well could play a big role.

“I think Cory will do very well at Penn State DuBois,” said Soellner, “He has the tools to play at that level and do very well. His strong arm, big bat, and his baseball IQ will serve him well.”

Academically Lehman plans to pursue a major in electro-mechanical technology.
