Former St. Charles Catholic second baseman James Callahan completed his sophomore season earlier this year for the Loyola Wolfpack, one that saw his playing time expand in a big way.

Callahan only played in 13 games as a freshman, accumulating 10 at bats – he hit .300 and had 2 RBIs in that action.

But as a sophomore, he played in 29 games and garnered 67 at bats. He hit .254 (17 hits), including two doubles, and scored 10 runs. He knocked in five runs and stole two bases.

His best game of his Wolfpack career so far came on Feb. 9, as Loyola faced Tougaloo College. In that game, he went 3-for-5 with three RBIs. He also doubled and drew a walk.

Callahan helped St. Charles capture three district championships in his time at the school, as well as a state-runner up finish and another as a semi-finalist. Callahan was named to the All-District team twice.
