Terrier Alums Ripping Up College Circuit!
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Friday, March 5, 2010
After three weekends of college baseball action Terrier alumni continued to make their mark, at the plate and on the mound. Tanner Nivins got his college career off to a great start with three hits in his first two games for Stony Brook University. The Seawolves started the season off with two victories over Akron University and UNC- Wilmington. Tanner is hitting .333 with two runs scored and two RBIs.

Junior shortstop, Chad Marshall had an RBI and also scored a run in the 3-2 win over Akron. Chad's younger brother, Shawn plays second base with the 18u Terriers. Right handed freshman Jas Rakkar got his first taste of college hitters, and was successful with both hitters he faced out of the bullpen. Jas got two wins for the Terriers last July at the World Series in Nashville, and his younger brother Barindar is presently a member of the 16u Terriers. With the victory over UNC- Wilmington, Stony Brook Head Coach Matt Senk got his 500th career college win. Matt is a great friend and supporter of the Terriers, and we congratulate him on this tremendous accomplishment. America East conference rival, the Binghamton Bearcats split a pair of games on Saturday. After losing to Kennesaw State, 10-7 the Bearcats shocked the University of Tennessee Volunteers 7-4. Third baseman Joel Stubbs, who played three years for the Terriers, had three hits an RBI and made four putouts. Tyler Patzalek and Chandler McLaren were both offensive machines for the Terriers and they have continued that trend at the college level. Tyler was 2-5 with two RBIs as the University of Maine defeated Rhode Island 6-5. The Vol State Pioneers are off to a 2-0 start. Freshman outfielder Chandler McLaren has had two hits, an RBI,a run scored, two walks and two stolen bases. Continued success Chandler! The top story of weekend certainly has to go to lefty Mike Goemans. Mike had a stellar career as a Terrier (17-2, PBLO Championship, World Series Championship) and has been even more impressive with Canisius College. Mike lead the Griffs in innings pitched last season, and can add yet another highlight to his resume, with a nine inning complete game victory Saturday in Nashville. He allowed just eight hits, walked only two and faced just two over the minimum in the final seven innings of the 12-4 win over Lipscomb University. Complete games at the NCAA D1 level are very rare, and this is truly an incredible feat. Great job Mike! The Golden Griffins have eight Terrier alumni on their roster and are 7-3 on the young season.
