Team Ontario Alumni Report: Week Six
This week's list is longer than usual with a total of nine former Team Ontario players who stood out this week on the collegiate level. Jamie Cabral, Parker Walker and Graeham Luttor all went deep while several others picked up extra-base hits.
Our alumni continue to heat up with the month of May looming as most teams near conference tournament time and games get more and more important.
Here's this week's top performers:
noah murciano, freshman, sussex county cc (NJCAA )
Murciano put together another big performance for the Skylanders this weekend and he was able to do it on both sides of the ball as well. Murciano threw out the first runner of his college career and picked up another base-knock, giving him one in each of his three appearances this year for a batting average of .375. The 2020 Team O grad is committed to the University of Antelope Valley in Southern California when his time is up Sussex County.
Jamie cabral, freshman, sussex county cc (njcaa )
Yet another Skylander to appear in this week's report, Cabral blasted his first home run with Sussex County on Saturday. The former Team Ontario outfielder put together a nice day at the dish going 2-for-5 with a home run, two RBI, a run scored and a stolen base.
riley mcerlean, sophomore, the college of wooster (NCAA)
McErlean has gotten into a game every weekend this season and he made the most of it this time around with a pinch-hit, two-run double and he also came around to score. It was McErlean's first hit at the College of Wooster and the Fighting Scots went on to win 28-3 and swept the series.
colin windle, freshman, hilbert college (ncaa)
Windle made his first appearance of the season for Hilbert College and it was a solid two inning performance out of the Hawks bullpen. It was a scoreless outing for Windle and he struck out three while allowing two hits and a walk.
