Terrier Alumni Making Their Mark As College Season Winds Down
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Saturday, May 30, 2009
Once again this year several Terriers alumni had excellent college baseball campaigns. As some will continue play in their respective regional NCAA tournaments, others will come home for a few weeks before they head out to summer teams in small towns all over the United States. With the MLB draft just over a week away, it is certain that some alumni wrapping up their college careers will be drafted, land pro contracts, and move on to play professional baseball.

Here are some Terrier Alumni 2009 College highlights... Jeff Skelhorne - Gross lead the Binghamton Bearcats (NCAA D1) to the America East Conference Championship with a .386 batting average. The Bearcats are moving on to the 64 team NCAA tournament. Good luck Jeff! Several Terrier alumni helped the Canisius Golden Griffins (NCAA D1) get to the MAAC Conference title game. Lefthander Shane Davis threw a complete game in the semi final recording a 3-2 victory over Manhatten. Slugger Brian Burton had an excellent sophomore season with a .290 average, 27 RBIs and 6 homers. The Terriers all time best hitter has not slowed down in college. Junior Ian Choy had another unbelievable season, hitting .359! He had 36 RBIs, 9 homers and a .581 slugging percentage. Left hander Mike Goemans lead the Griffins in innings pitched (90.1), recorded 7 victories and had the lowest ERA of all starters. Sophomore infielder Chad Marshall was named the Stony Brook Athlete of the week last Monday after being selected to the America East All- Tournament team. In 192 at bats in 2009, Chad hit .354 and lead the Seawolves in hits with 68. At the University of West Alabama, Brian Simone wacked 9 home runs and capped the season with a .344 average. The Tigers finished with a 38-16 overall record, 14-2 in the Gulf South conference. Josh Garton lead the Volunteer State Pioneers (NJCAA D1) to the Region VII Championship title. He hit 5 homers and had a remarkable .390 average. Josh is one of the highest ranked Canadians playing college baseball for next weeks MLB draft.
