Although he earned All-Skyway Conference honors in both basketball and baseball his sophomore year, it was the latter sport in which Lance Surridge truly excelled. Surridge was named All-Region IV and Waubonsee's Male Athlete of the Year in 1996, having led the Chiefs to a second-place finish at the NJCAA Division III World Series that year. He also represented the Chiefs in the Region IV All-Star game. After transferring to the University of North Carolina-Greensboro on an NCAA Division I baseball scholarship, Surridge was selected in the Major League Baseball Draft and played professional minor league baseball for four years.
