DRURY DOZEN – the top 12 moments of ’23-24: Luke Burk sets DU single-season home run record in 8-7 win over UIS

The Drury Dozen is an annual list of our favorite moments of the year from Drury Athletics. The list is not necessarily the most significant events but the special games and moments we’ll always associate with 2023-24 as chosen by the Drury Athletics sports communications staff.
We’ll provide honorable mention selections later in the countdown, but for now, here is our first entry from 2023-24:
#12 – Luke Burk sets DU’s single-season home run record in 8-7 win over Ill. Springfield
April 13, 2024 – Mark Worley Field at Meador Park
Luke Burk smacked his 14th home run of the year as the Panthers beat rival Illinois Springfield in the second game of a doubleheader on April 13, 2024 at Mark Worley Field at Meador Park. The senior from Galena, Missouri, went 2 for 4 in the game and his fourth inning solo shot put Drury in the lead.
The Panthers overcame an injury to starting pitcher Jack Jones, who faced only two batters until he had to exit, and scored eight runs to hold off the Prairie Stars.
