CARDINALS IN COLLEGE
Pete’s students have fared well not only on the diamond, but they have also enhanced their classroom success, enriched their personal lives and grown their professional process capacity.
By the numbers over nearly 30 years of working, over 90% of Wilkinson baseball students have gone on to play college sports. Over 70% of those played at least through their junior year in college. That is double the national average success rate of college baseball careers. In softball and golf, the percentage is nearly 100%.
Within the hundreds of Pete’s students, here are a few examples of young men and women who have made serious impact on their teams both on and off the field.
