The Arkansas-Monticello baseball team took down Mississippi College on Tuesday afternoon as they traveled to Clinton, Mississippi for a mid-week with the Choctaws. The Weevils put up 3 runs compared to Mississippi College’s 1 run. UAM would head home with a win as they prepare for their upcoming GAC series with SAU.

Jordan Johnson has done some impressive things in his time at UAM, and as his final season with the Weevils is slowly closing in, he’s yet again proved how big of an impact he is to the program. In Tuesday afternoon’s match-up, Johnson broke another GAC record in his long career with Monticello. Driving a ball through the left side, Johnson broke the GAC career hits record with his 262nd base hit.
