2017 College Round Up..... Week 3
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Monday, March 6, 2017
With the exception of the Stony Brook Seawolves run to the 2012 College World Series with three Terriers in the lineup, this past weekend was arguably the next best that Terrier alumni have ever been a part of at the NCAA D1 level. Their fingerprints were all over victories against nationally ranked teams.
Luke Tevlin's Binghamton University Bearcats swept four games (12-5, 9-8, 6-5, 2-1) from the #19 ranked Virginia Tech Hokies in Blacksburg Virginia.
Luke chipped in with hits and RBI's and was perfect defensively in the series. His FLD% is 1.000 on the season.
Down the road in Charlottesville Virginia the Niagara Purple Eagles with Geoff Seto, Joe Tevlin and Joel Brophy in the lineup took down the #12 ranked University of Virginia Cavaliers 8-5 on Saturday. Joel had two RBI in the win.
The Canisius Golden Griffins are 9-3 after taking three of four from Fordham on the weekend. Lefty Zach Sloan turned in a quality start on Saturday going five innings, allowing five hits while fanning four. Team mate and fellow alumni Liam Wilson (.357) tallied a pair of hits and a run in the 5-3 victory.
Toby Handley's 3-3 day went for nought in Orlando, as Stony Brook fell to Central Florida 3-2. Toby also had a homer in the UCF series and has hit safely in seven straight games.
After 20 games this year we continue to track Kyle MacDonald of the Crowder College Roughriders. Kyle is eligible for this June's MLB draft and is hitting. 375 with five homers and 19 RBI.
