Josh Garton Committs To Volunteer State
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Saturday, December 2, 2006
The Terriers are very pleased to announce that 3rd baseman Josh Garton will be attending Volunteer State (NJCAA Division 1) on a baseball scholarship this fall.

Josh joined the Terriers about a year ago out of Guelph Minor baseball. After a winter in the Terriers strength and conditioning program, in which Josh did an excellent job physically, he was ready to go for the marathon Terriers schedule. Josh got off to a tremendous start on the March break trip to Florida, where he hit over .450 vs College competition. During the PBLO schedule, Josh hit in the six hole, providing the Terriers with power and RBIs. The highlight of his Terriers career came during the teams summer trip to the United States, where Josh's performance at the Sandlott World Series was simply outstanding. Solid defence at third base and clutch power hitting caught the eye of Head Coach Mike Crossland from Volunteer State. This performance lead to his scholarship. Volunteer State plays in one of the top 3 Junior College conferences in the United States. In fact, in-state rival, Walter State, won the Junior College World Series last year. Playing in this type of competative environment will only further Josh's baseball career! Congratulations to Josh and his family on this great achievment! The Terriers are proud to have Josh as an alumni.
