Connor O'Halloran Commits to The Michigan Wolverines
What a year for Connor O'Halloran!

The dominating lefty has topped off 2018 with a scholarship to attend one of the most prestigious universities in the United States‎ - the University of Michigan.

Michigan is a great fit for Connor on the field and in the classroom as he has been an honor roll student for the past two years at St. Martins High School.

Congratulations to the entire O'Halloran family on this most recent accomplishment by Connor.

Over the past year Connor carved up the competition in the PBLO and also on the road during the Terriers summer tournament schedule. 

In August he helped lead the Ontario Youth Team to a gold medal at the 17u Canada Cup National Championship. Connor started the championship final game, a victory over Team BC.

The accolades and more success continued into the fall when Connor pitched at Rogers Centre for the Futures Team in T12 and also in Orlando for the Junior National Team. 

He will don the maple leaf again in November when Team Canada travels to the Palm Beaches for a selection camp to determine the 20-player roster that will represent our country at the 18u Pan - American Championship to be played in Panama. 

The University of Michigan Wolverines compete in the Big Ten Conference. The Wolverines have been to the College World Series seven times, coming away with two titles. They are the fourth winningest baseball program in NCAA Di‎vision I history.

Seven first-round MLB Draft Picks have attended Michigan and there have been ten World Series champions that wore the maize and blue. 

The Wolverines were 33-21 (.611) last year. 18-3 at home. They completed the season ranked 63rd in the nation.

This year, US News and World Report ranked Michigan the #4 public institution in the United States and Ann Arbor was ranked the #1 College Town by Forbes magazine.

Throughout this incredible year Connor has remained humble and has been a tremendous team mate. The entire Terriers organization is very proud of him. 

Continued success, Connor.
