Vacca To Join Usc (Upstate) Spartans
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Wednesday, October 28, 2009
The Terriers trend of NCAA Division 1 commitments continued this past week as outfielder Anthony Vacca has secured a scholarship at the University of South Carolina (Upstate) Spartans. Anthony will be the first Canadian in the Spartan baseball program history. USC (Upstate) is located in Spartanburg, SC. The university was founded in 1967 and is home to 5,000 students. The Spartans play in the very competative Atlantic Sun Conference, which had three first round picks in the 2009 MLB Draft.

Anthony will be travelling throughout North Carolina, Tennessee and Florida for conference play. Prior to his USC offer, Anthony had been pursued by several other Division 1 programs, however he felt that the University of South Carolina (Upstate) was his best fit for the blend of academics, baseball and coaching. This past summer Anthony played in the PBLO Allstar Game, where he hit a double. He has a plus arm from the outfield and hits in the heart of the Terriers order. Vacca provides the team with power and average from the left side of the plate. Anthony is an excellent student, backed by his a 3.9 GPA, and he is also on the Honour Roll at C E L Crossley SS in Fonthill. Communication/Journalism will be Anthony's major at the University of South Carolina(Upstate). Congratulations to Anthony and his family on this tremendous scholarship opportunity.
