Red Devils head to college baseball

Back-to-back-to-back Region Championship program produces 3 college signees for 2024


Winners of nearly 80 games over the past three seasons and contributors to region title-winning seasons, three Clinton High baseball standouts - Zane McLendon, Carson Glenn and Harrison Moore - made their commitments to colleges at a last Wednesday signing ceremony.

It was an afternoon in the middle of a playoff run - Tuesday Clinton lost to Wren and Thursday the Red Devils defeated Travelers Rest.

It was this time last year when Clinton shifted into high gear and swept their way to the Class AAA Baseball State Championship, won at the Red Devil baseball complex. This year’s team won its third straight Region Championship with a make-up game win over Union County.

“Each year they have achieved milestones in their careers,” CHS Baseball Head Coach Sean McCarthy said. “Being the person that people look to every day as a leader in the program and, as a coach, I couldn’t be more proud. The character shows through with these young men, every day.”

McLendon signed a commitment at attend and play for Newberry College. The third baseball will major in business.

“I want to thank my family, mom and dad. Dad, for all the tournaments and camps. To my team, thank you for pushing me to be a better player and coaches thank you for pushing me to be a better player, and a better man,” he said.

Glenn is taking his talents to Spartanburg Methodist College, as a workhorse pitcher for the Red Devils this season, and is planning to major in sports management. 

“I want to thank my family, everything they’ve done through the years, it’s irreplaceable. Thank my teammates, football and baseball the last three years, I couldn’t have done anything without you guys. I will love you guys forever,” he said.

Moore committed to Montreat College, aiming to play first base and major in physical education.

“God put me in this place where I am today, and I believe he led me here for that purpose,” he said. “I want to thank my family and my teammates for pushing me to be the best that I can be.”

Red Devil Baseball ends its season with a 14-12 overall record and a Region Championship.
