Scrappy Infielder Graeme Scott Lands Scholarship At Trinity!
Terriers’ second baseman Graeme Scott is off to Palos Heights, Illinois later this year to attend Trinity Christian College (4 year, NAIA) on a combined baseball/academic scholarship.
Graeme has spent the past two seasons up the middle of the diamond for the Terriers. Scrappy, both in the field and at the plate, Graeme is solid defensively and always seems to be in the thick of a Terrier rally. He does a great job of either setting the table on the base paths, moving runners by hitting behind them or with the execution of a bunt play. Graeme's best string of performances came last fall during the Terriers Arizona trip. He had 5 RBIs on 9 hits, for a .389 average, scoring 7 runs. Defensively Scott counted 14 assists in 6 games and did not make an error.
Speaking of performances, he won't be limited to just making them on the baseball field. Graeme will be studying Theatre Arts at Trinity. Graeme loves acting and is excited that the campus is located just fifty minutes from the Chicago Theatre District.
Back on the baseball side, second year Head Coach Jason Huisman eagerly looks forward to the completion of the new baseball field being built on campus. It will be ready for Graeme's sophomore year.
Congratulations to Graeme and his family for their hard work on helping make this opportunity possible for their son.
