On The College Front - Week 3
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Saturday, February 26, 2011
Here is last weeks recap of former Terrier performances south of the border: * In NCAA D1 action, the Stony Brook University Seawolves opened their season with a pair of victories at Florida Atlantic University. Terrier alumni Tanner Nivins cashed the Seawolves first RBI of the season and was 2-4 with a run scored in a 5-0 Stony Brook win. Shortstop Chad Marshall, who is now a SR, was 1-3 with

a sac bunt and a run scored. In game two, Chad was 2-2 with an RBI and a run scored in a 5-1 Stony Brook victory. Alumni sophomore right hander Jas Rakkar also got his first taste of action this past weekend, going two thirds of an inning, striking out two. The FAU Owls had defeated the nationally ranked Miami Hurricanes on Wednesday night, so these two wins by Stony Brook are certainly signs of a great season ahead for the Seawolves. * University of Maine catcher Tyler Patzalek was 2-4 with an RBI on Saturday at Stetson University. Stetson squeaked by the Black Bears 3-1. * In Virginia, Jeff Skelhorne- Gross was 1-3 with an RBI and a walk, as the visiting Binghamton Bearcats defeated VMI 7-1. * In Knoxville, the University of Tennessee Volunteers were hosting Canisius. SR first baseman Brian Burton (pictured) was 1-3 in game one, but the Vols came away with a 4-0 win. In game two, Chris Cox had the ball for the Griffs. He went five innings, scattering five hits versus the SEC powerhouse Volunteers. The final was 6-2 Tennessee. * In Livingston Alabama, Brian Simone continued his torrid pace at the plate. Brian helped the University of West Alabama Tigers take 3 of 4 from 24th ranked Nova Southeastern. Simone was 6-14 (.428) with 4 RBIs and 5 runs scored in the first three games of the weekend. The Tigers have already played 15 games and are 8-7. * Kevin Nickel blasted a two run homer in the first inning of game two, and UBC went on to sweep a Sunday DH from the College of Idaho. Congratulations to all Terrier alumni on another great week of college baseball.
