Former Saints Help Lakers Reach Baseball World Series

Former Saints Help Lakers Reach Baseball World Series

On Sunday, May 17th, the Mercyhurst Lakers earned a trip to the NCAA Division II College World Series for the first time in program history. There to help the Lakers achieve this historic feat were four former MNE Saints and baseball standouts.

Cam Balego 14', Austin Along 14', Joe Gnacinski 13' and Angel Martinez 13' are all graduates of Mercyhurst North East and two year members of the Saints Baseball Team and are currently on the 2015 Mercyhurst Lakers Team. All four players have contributed to the success of the Lakers this season, while  Angel Martinez leads the Lakers with a .381 batting average, collecting 53 hits in 139 at bats and was named to the All-PSAC 1st team.

The Lakers will be traveling to Cary, NC this week to compete in the 2015 NCAA Division II Baseball National Finals. We wish the Lakers the best of luck and especially our four former Saints!!!
