Terriers catcher Christian Bottero will be continuing his academic and baseball career at Okanagan College in British Columbia this fall. Congratulation to the Bottero family on Christian's commitment to the Okanagan Coyotes baseball program.
Christian began training at The Baseball Zone over five years ago and has been a roster player with the Terriers since his 15U season.
At the plate he consistently hits the ball with authority generating power to all fields. He has been a loyal and determined Terrier for years, possessing a tremendous work ethic.
Okanagan College was established in 1963 and has since grown to be the largest college in BC outside the Lower Mainland and Victoria. It is home to over 8,500 full time students on four regional campuses located in Kelowna, Penticton, Vernon and Salmon Arm.
The Coyotes play their conference schedule in the Canadian College Baseball Conference. Their out of conference schedule sees them compete against nationally ranked US programs such as the College of Southern Nevada, Central Arizona, the College of Southern Idaho, Chandler Gilbert CC and UBC.
The Coyotes begin play in mid February and wrap up in late May. They also play an extensive fall schedule.
Christian won his high school's Phys Ed Award in grade ten and on the academic side, he is an honor roll student. He will be studying Mechanical Engineering at Okanagan College.
Congratulations Christian and best of luck as a Coyote.
