St. Rita alum Mark Payton, '10, makes NCAA Division I history

Mark Payton, St. Rita class of 2010 and current four-year letterman on the University of Texas baseball team, continues to make NCAA history as he and his Longhorn teammates continue their push to the NCAA college World Series.  Mark has successfully reached base in 99 consecutive Big 12 baseball games.  Although no 'official' on-base records are kept by the NCAA, Payton earlier this season passed the then 'record' streak of 93 consecutive games set by a Kansas State player in 2011.  This weekend, Mark has the ability to reach base successfully in 100-straight games.
