George Seigel Commits to Keene State

George Seigel (Concord, NH) has committed to Keene State for the upcoming year where he will be a member of the Owl’s baseball team.

When asked about his decision, Seigel commented, “They have a great business program and a competitive baseball team. It’s close to home, so my parents will still be able to watch me play which is really important. I felt very comfortable when I visited, and it helps that there is such a strong BA alumni population already on campus.”

Coach Izaryk added, "I'm excited that Keene State continues to be a destination for our players. I think Coach Howe, along with Coach Testo, runs a tremendous program, and I think George has the potential to be an impact arm for them right away. George's intensity will serve him well in the very competitive, nationally ranked Little East Conference. George has made a lot of positive strides as a student-athlete here at Bridgton this fall, and I think he has the ability to help Keene compete for a national title in years to come."

Nick Swim Commits to NJIT

Nick Swim (St. Albans, VT) has recently committed to the New Jersey Institute of Technology, where he will attend in the fall and compete on the Highlanders baseball team.

Swim is excited about the opportunity commenting, “I loved everything about the school. They have a great campus, a competitive academics and athletics with good facilities, big dorms, and the perfect location not far from the city and some close family. I really connected with the coaches and the players on the team, and I am really excited about the possibilities.”

Coach Izaryk added, "Nick's commitment to Coach Cole at New Jersey Tech is an exciting one for our program. With Nick's leadership ability and work ethic, he has a chance to be a strong player at NJIT and compete for a job right away. Nick came to BA with many accolades, including the Gatorade Player of the Year in Vermont (2011), and we're excited to have him as one of our captain's this year. Nick's understanding of the game and competitive nature will allow him to transition into the fast-paced environment of NCAA Division 1 baseball. With Coach Cole heading into his 3rd year in 2012, New Jersey Tech is a program that projects to be very good during Nick's four years in the Great West Conference, and I'm confident Nick will help NJIT baseball get to the next level."

Congratulations Nick!!
