Austin Huibers Lands Scholarship At Vol St
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Friday, August 27, 2010
Lefty Austin Huibers made the trip south to Tennessee this past week to begin his college career as a member of the Volunteer State Pioneers.(NJCAA D1).

Securing a scholarship and playing baseball in Tennessee was Austin's first choice as a college destination! Austin has been a solid performer on the mound for the Terriers the past three years. After a year on the 16u team, where he was the staff ace, he moved to the SR Terriers, pitching out of the bullpen for a season before grabbing a spot as a starter again this past campaign. Austin is a crafty lefty with an outstanding curve ball that is sure to continue to be his out pitch at the college level. In his last year of high school baseball Austin carried underdog Waterdown HS on his back all the way to the Prentice Cup final four at Rogers Center. He also played his minor ball in Waterdown before joining the Terriers in 2007. Volunteer State is located in Gallatin, Tennessee, which is 30 miles northeast of Nashville. Founded in 1971, the campus sits on a 100 acre tract of land on the Nashville Pike and is home to 8,000 students. The Pioneers compete in the TCCAA Division 1 Conference and battle teams from across Tennessee and Kentucky. They are traditionally one of the top teams in the conference, having appeared in two NJCAA D1 World Series. Last season the Pioneers compiled a 32-14 record, and were seventh in the nation in hitting. They have had over 25 MLB draft picks since 2000. The Terriers would like to sincerely thank Coach Joel Lynch for his past and continued support of the Terriers program. Austin is the fourth Terrier Joel has recruited. Congratulations to Austin and his family on this accomplishment, and best of luck at Volunteer State.
