On Friday, May 15 the student body, faculty, and staff at Shekinah Christian School along with several members of the Webb family gathered in the gymnasium at the school to watch as Zach Webb, a senior at Shekinah Christian School, officially sign to play baseball at Asbury University in Wilmore, Ky.

He was a starting pitcher for the Flames over the last two seasons. During his senior year, he compiled a 5-3 record with a 2.65 ERA and 53 strike outs. He was voted First Team All-Central District.

Asbury head men’s baseball Coach Manny Cervantes said during the brief ceremony that Asbury seeks student-athletes who fit three criteria that they must be committed Christ followers, excellent students and hard-working talented athletes. They call this philosophy “going 3 for 3” and firmly believe that Zach Webb meets all three criteria.

Shekinah head baseball Coach Aaron Miller said, “Zach is an excellent pitcher and leader who has worked extremely hard in order to play at the college level.”

When asked about his thoughts regarding signing to play baseball at Asbury University, Zach said, “I am excited for the opportunity to continue my career at the next level.”
