Recently, Charlestown senior Skylar Cochran was joined by family, teammates and coaches to sign her letter of intent to attend school and participate in basketball at Lyon college in the winter.

Located in Batesville, Arkansas, Lyon College is a selective undergraduate liberal arts college located in the foothills of the scenic Ozarks. Founded in 1872, it is one of the oldest colleges in Arkansas. Valued for its small class size, strong student-faculty interactions, and collegial atmosphere, Lyon has forged a singular identity by combining a deep commitment to outstanding liberal arts with a rich community setting. Undergraduates at Lyon can pursue degrees in 15 disciplines as well as pre-professional programs leading to careers in education, law, medicine, physical therapy, and more. Additional programs include the APPLE Project Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math-Science programs for high school students.

Lyon College competes in the American Midwest conference (NAIA Division 1) and is home to many varsity sports including Men’s and Women’s Basketball, Baseball, Men’s and Women’s Cross Country, Football, Men’s and Women’s Golf, Men’s Lacrosse, Men’s and Women’s Soccer, Softball, Men’s and Women’s Track and Field, Volleyball, and Men’s and Women’s Wrestling, as well as Co-Ed sports archery, cheerleading, competitive dance, eSports, and Shooting Sports.

Cochran, who has received numerous athletic endeavors in cross country, basketball, and tennis over her career at Charlestown will major in forensic psychology. When asked about her choice to play at Lyon College with the Scots, Cochran said, “I chose Lyon College because the academics and environment are excellent. After arriving on campus it felt like home. I could tell they strive on building relationships with their students and athletes. I’m grateful for the opportunity to play basketball for a top ranked program. Coach Stewart-Lange and coach Church have been very supportive and helpful in the recruiting process. I can’t wait to become a Scot.”

Charlestown basketball coach (and Cochran’s stepfather) shared the following sentiments on Cochran: “Skylar has dedicated a lot to the sports she has participated in and we are appreciative of her efforts for the past four years.  We will miss her here as a Pirate, but wish her the best in this next chapter of her athletic and academic endeavors.”

The Charlestown High School athletic department and WPMQ, The Pirate Network congratulate Skylar and wish her a healthy and prosperous future as a Lyon College Scot.

Hanover gave me a chance to fulfill this dream. Not only does Hanover have a top tier program, but the academics and the environment is outstanding. Coach Bellak has been very helpful with the process of my future and my family and I are truly grateful for that. I look forward to playing for Coach Bellak and being a part of Panther baseball.”

New Charlestown baseball Brian Hester has not yet had the chance to coach McCoy as he is also a basketball player and hasn’t been able to attend pre-season workouts, but he has watched McCoy through the years of Charlestown baseball and had this to say: “Matthew is part of the strong foundation of all the good things about Charlestown baseball. He has the passion, desire, and work ethic to be great not only in baseball but as a member of society. Hanover will not only be gaining a quality baseball player but also an outstanding human being.”

Coach Jay Sorg, a long time hitting coach of McCoy’s, told those in attendance at the signing, “I am so happy for Matthew and his family. This is a great fit. Hanover is getting a great player and better person. I have had the privilege of seeing Matthew grow both on and off the field since he was a young kid. In all those years I believe this off season has been his biggest jump. He is ready to have a huge high school season and impactful college career. Words can not do justice on how proud I am of Matthew.”

WPMQ, The Pirate Network congratulates Matthew (a 4th year member of the Radio and Television program) and wishes him a healthy and prosperous future as a Hanover College Panther.
