Former Terriers catcher Cote named to CBN All-Canadian College Team
The Canadian Baseball Network has started to release its All-Canadian College Team selections and so far one familiar face to the Terriers organization has garnered recognition.

Northeastern Junior College catcher Josh Cote was named to the Third Team by the group of voters.

Cote finished his freshman campaign in Colorado with a .343 average, a .465 on-base percentage and a .781 slugging percentage.

He also led the Plainsmen with 14 home runs.

It's not the first time Cote has been honoured by the Canadian Baseball Network as he was tabbed the College Player of the Week for Feb. 27 to March 5.

During that seven day span, the Midland native played in three games and collected eight hits, four of which were home runs, and drove in 13.

What the CBN had to say:

Cote’s OPS was more than impressive ... one you seldom see after 45 games and 137 at-bats. He had a 1.256 mark with 18 doubles, 14 homers, 49 RBIs and a .343 average.

After starting the season hitless in eight at-bats, he went 4-for-4 with a double against Dawson and was 4-for-5 against Luna (two doubles, a homer, three RBIs). Cote had three-hit games against Lamar (three homers, nine RBIs), Lamar again (homer, three RBIs) and McCook (double, two homers, two RBIs).

He had two-hit outings facing Miles (homer, three RBIs), Lamar (double, RBI), CSU Pueblo JVs (double), Otero (double, homer, three RBIs), Western Nebraska (RBI), CSU Club (two doubles, RBI), Western Nebraska (two doubles, three RBIs), Western Nebraska again (double, solo homer) and Western Nebraska again (RBI).

Cote, who played for Terriers and coach Dean Dicenzo, had a memorable four-game series as he collected eight hits -- including four home runs -- and 13 RBIs. Six of his eight hits came in a doubleheader as the Plainsmen scored 46 times. He went 3-for-5 with three home runs and nine RBIs in a 22-18 win and then went 3-for-5 game with a home run and three RBIs in a 24-13 victory.
