Over 80 Vermonters On Four-Year Collegiate Rosters For 2015 Campaign

For the fourth-plus straight season, over 80 former Vermont high school baseball players were student-athletes and coaches on NCAA Division I, Division II and Division III, and USCAA (four-year) collegiate baseball rosters for the 2015 season. 

The list includes six Vermonters with NCAA Division I programs and three former Vermont high school products as NCAA head coaches, two in D-I.  In all divisions, several student-athletes played on teams that earned spots in the NCAA Baseball Championship tournaments (the 2015 D-I field will be announced later in May) and several others earned all-conference honors. A complete honor roll will be posted on later this spring.

The list was compiled by the Vermont Baseball Coaches Association. The student-athletes and coaches come from close to 40 different Vermont high school programs representing all four VPA divisions, and come from all areas of the Green Mountain State. This year's list features four Vermonters on the roster of the College of St. Joseph's of Rutland, Vt., whose varsity baseball team returned to the diamond after close to a decade's absence.
