TROY — Fontbonne baseball recently added a Triad Knight to their list of commits.

Hunter Winkles, a Triad senior, spoke on his decision to join the Griffins, “The coaches really showed they believed in me and wanted me there.”

Fontbonne University, which competes at the Division III level of the NCAA, is a member of the Saint Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Other member schools include Principia, Greenville and Blackburn.

“It’s something I’ve worked for my whole life. I’m proud to be able to say I got there,” Winkles said of reaching the collegiate level of baseball.

While competing for the Griffins on the diamond, the college-bound Knight plans to pursue a degree in business administration.

Fontbonne, who is off to a 4-3 start this spring, amassed a 25-16 mark last season. The program has tallied at least 24 wins across their last four full campaigns.

The future Griffin gave thanks to, “God, my family, my peers and my coaches.”
