Jett Beachum — He was named to the Class 3 all-district soccer squad after a stellar season in goal for the Hannibal Pirates. But even that doesn't compare to John Maune's latest accomplishment this afternoon.
Today, the Hannibal senior signed with the U.S. Military Academy to join the corp of cadets next fall at West Point.
Maune joins the prestigious program that only accepts roughly 10 percent of the 12,000 applicants it gets each year. Though he won't be continuing his soccer career at the next level, Maune is certainly excited for the experiences that lie ahead.
