Marion’s Jack Lanning – Hog Wild Prep Performance Athlete of the Month

Jack Lanning of Marion has been chosen the Hog Wild Performance of the Month for May. In the Warriors’ doubleheader sweep over Moundridge, Lanning went 4-8 with three runs scored.
“I feel honored to be chosen for the VYPE magazine,” Lanning said. “I’ve put a lot of work in with baseball and I’m glad it’s finally starting to show. I hope that I can keep moving in the right direction and that this is just the beginning of my athletic achievement.”


Lanning has been pleased with his season so far, but he knows he is just scratching the surface of his abilities.
“I still have many things to improve on with my baseball skills,” Lanning said. “The end goal for me isn’t personally my own stats and achievements but how we finish as a team which I’m hoping is a deep postseason run with my teammates.”
Being an aggressive base runner is something Lanning takes the most pride in, as he has stolen 19 bases.
“I like to have a mentality of when I get on my goal is to do whatever it takes to score,” Lanning said.
Lanning also plays basketball and football for Marion and outside of athletics; he is involved in StuCo and NHS.
