The past four years have been a whirlwind and many memories have been made for the seniors on the Greenville College Baseball team. Trevor Montgomery, Dillion Reel, Ryan Strohm, Jason Collingwood, Dathan Berning and CJ Opp have been a part of the GC Baseball team and have made an impact on those around them.
Meet the Seniors
Berning, a senior third baseman from Vandalia has been a Panther for four years and has done so much for GC with his amazing arm, launching the ball across the field. Montgomery, a catcher from Vandalia, has played for Greenville for three years and has helped the team to victories with his swing, hitting bombs over the fence. Reel, from Mattoon Ill, is a right handed pitcher who has played for GC for all four years. He has dominated in counts and has gotten big double play balls. Opp, a left handed pitcher, is from Pinckneyville, Ill. Opp has started and come in as a relief all four years at Greenville. With his cheerful words and great leadership skills, Opp has done so much for the Panthers. Left handed pitcher Strohm, from St. Louis Missouri, has been with Greenville for two years. He works hard every day and has dedicated his time to being the best player he can. Collingwood, a right handed pitcher from Decatur Ill, has brought his faith and leadership to the team all four years he has been with GC.
The Panthers took on Eureka on Senior day and took the sweep. Game one ended in a 9-3 victory, while GC completed an 8-0 shutout win in the second game. With these two wins, the Panthers have clinched a spot in the conference tournament.
The conference tournament will begin next Thursday at Robert E. Smith field here in Greenville. GC will take on Webster at 5:00.
