Three Diamond Hogs Earn All-American Honors

FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – Making it to Omaha isn’t the only accomplishment for the Arkansas baseball team this week.

D1 Baseball named Isaiah Campbell, Matt Cronin, and Jack Kenley to the All-American list released on Thursday.

Ace pitcher Isaiah Campbell graced the second team.  Through his final campaign as a Razorback, he racked up an astounding 2.26 ERA loaded with 115 strikeouts and just 20 walks. The future Mariner allowed just 36 runs in 111.1 innings pitched, with an OBA of just .205.

Cronin and Kenley were both part of the third team. Cronin, one of the top Razorback closers, has been on the mound 24 times this season earning 12 saves. Through 28 innings pitched, he’s struck out 41 batters while walking just 14. Holding an OBA of .167, the Nationals draftee hasn’t allowed a run in his past seven appearances.

Kenley is having the season of his life with Arkansas and is continuing on an upward trend through the postseason. He’s slammed 13 homeruns this season and holds a batting average of .319 with 53 RBI. Playing second base on defense, he’s racked up a .976 fielding percentage.

Arkansas tied Mississippi State for All-Americans – each with three. The SEC lead the All-American list, sporting 15 athletes overall.

Spokesman: ‘No Adverse Effects’ Expected For Arkansas Nuclear One In Floods

RUSSELLVILLE (KFSM) — Arkansas Nuclear One personnel are monitoring the floodwaters making their way toward the nuclear power plant, but they don’t anticipate any problems, a spokesman said.

The spokesman for Entergy said the Russellville plant’s employees have reviewed the procedures for elevated lake and river levels around the station.

“Station emergency staff members are maintaining regular communications with the Arkansas Department of Health, which is monitoring conditions in the area,” the spokesman said. “No adverse effects are anticipated for ANO.”

At Entergy, we take all natural events, such as flooding, very seriously. We have performed robust assessments, extensive testing and re-analyzed the potential of floods at all of our nuclear plants. Our employees are experienced, highly trained and are prepared to respond to a variety of off-normal situations, including severe weather. Anytime there are incidents at other locations around the globe, we re-examine our plans to ensure our standards are high and safety margins wide.

The statement comes after the National Weather Service warned that three of the six Arkansas River locations (Conway, Morrilton and Russellville) will reach record high levels, and they have asked those who live near the river to evacuate as quickly as possible, according to our Little Rock CBS affiliate THV11.
