Gone way too soon, a Mendota High School graduate is now memorialized.
New batting cages were dedicated Wednesday at Mendota High to 2018 graduate Benjamin Bokus. A three-sport athlete for the Trojans, Bokus died last year at the age of 19 after battling leukemia.
A number of guest speakers honored Bokus including his parents. The “Ben Bokus Batting Cages” include a plaque honoring the Trojan who wore #22 during his playing days.
