Terrier Alumni Ian Choy Wins Maac Baseball Rookie Of The Year
He was a great teammate, a quiet leader and a major cog in the 2006 terriers dream season.

The Terriers are very proud of, and would like to congratulate outfielder Ian Choy and his family on being named the MAAC (Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) NCAA Division 1 Rookie of the Year. The announcement came at the conference's annual awards dinner Wednesday night. The freshman led the Golden Griffins and ranked 6th in the conference in hitting with a .370 batting average, to go with a team leading 12 doubles and 26 RBIs. He also ranked 5th in the MAAC in on-base percentage with a .447 mark. Head Coach Mike Macrae stated, "Ian is a very advanced hitter. Unlike many freshmen, he does not have holes in his swing-he can handle fastballs to both sides of the plate, plus he hits the off-speed pitches well. Ian is very deserving of MAAC Rookie of the Year award. He has come a long way through the course of the year and I believe he will only get better". Choy is the first player in school history to win MAAC Rookie of the Year honors and was also selected first team all-conference. Congratulations Ian!
