Nivins Wins America East Rookie Of The Week Award
Terriers alumni Tanner Nivins (Freshman) of the Stony Brook University Baseball Team (NCAA D1) has been named the America East Conference Rookie of the Week.
Tanner helped the Seawolves to a three game sweep over conference rival UMBC. Nivins hit .625 with two home runs, six runs scored and had ten RBIs in the three game series. He went 3-4 with a triple and three RBIs on Saturday, and then drove in four runs, including a three run homer in the game two win.
In the finale on Sunday, Tanner hit another three run home run. Nivins leads the Seawolves in home runs (7) and RBIs (39).
Tanner is one of the Terriers most decorated alumni. In his two years with the program he also played with Canada's Junior National Team. He was a member of the 2008 Canada Cup National Championship Team, where he won two game MVP awards and was named top offensive player at the tournament.
Congratulations Tanner, and continued good luck with your college career.
