Noah Murciano named to First Team All-GSAC

by Jason Booth

2020 Team Ontario graduate Noah Murciano has been named to the First Team All-GSAC (Garden State Athletic Conference) as a catcher.

Murciano took a big step forward this past season, both offensively and defensively, and quickly became a leader on the Skylanders team that also included his Team Ontario teammate, Jamie Cabral.

Murciano batted .340 with an on-base percentage of .407 across 17 games. Another big part of his game was his ability to put the ball in play and limit his strikeouts as the 6-foot-2 catcher nearly walked more than he struck out. Murciano closed out the season with just seven strikeouts to six free passes.

Murciano's development during his time at Sussex County has landed him at the University of Antelope Valley, an NAIA program in Lancaster, California for the upcoming year. Previously mentioned Cabral will also join him on the West Coast.

Antelope Valley's baseball program finished the 2021 season with a record of 18-5 record, including a 10-2 record in conference play. Murciano will look to help the club build on an impressive 2021 campaign and held lead the team on a long postseason run.

Team Ontario is proud of Noah Murciano's accomplishment as a First-Team All-Conference and we look forward to following his collegiate career as he heads to the West Coast.
