Devon Yogendran Headed To The Hawks
The Terriers organization would like to congratulate RHP Devon Yogendran and his family on Devon's recent commitment to the University of Maryland - Eastern Shore.
Devon will be continuing his post secondary education and his baseball career in a Hawks uniform later this year.
In addition to several outstanding mound outings with the Terriers over the past two seasons, Devon was his high school's 2015-16 Male Athlete of the Year and also garnered MVP honors with the basketball team.
The Hawks compete in the Eastern College Athletic Conference. Their baseball schedule takes them through Virginia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and throughout Maryland. In all, the university boasts 15 teams at the NCAA D1 level.
Historically, the school opened on September 13, 1886. By the turn of the century it was known widely as Princess Anne Academy but by 1948 the Eastern Shore of the University of Maryland was renamed Maryland State College. On July 1, 1970 it was renamed The University of Maryland- Eastern Shore. It is home to 3,900 students.
Devon will be enrolled in the Honors Program at UMES. He has also been an honors student at his high school for the past three years and received the Bronze Award for Academic Excellence in 2015-16.
Best of luck Devon.
