            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Nine Plymouth State University baseball players participated in high-level prospect summer leagues this summer; by far the most in the program's history.

            Senior James Garnett (Newport, RI) headlined the group, playing infield for the Winnipesaukee Muskrats in Laconia, N.H. as part of the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL). Garnett was picked up by the team midway through the season, and shined for the local Muskrats, leading the team in batting average (.333), and was among the team leaders in home runs (7), RBIs (19) and stolen bases (4). Incoming Assumption College transfer Geoff Kayo (Londonderry, N.H.) also played for the Muskrats, making eight appearances on the mound, and will be re-joining the Muskrats during the 2017 season. Also participating in the NECBL, for the Upper Valley Nighthawks, was infielder Eric Leitch (Lanesboro, Mass.), who helped the team garner a playoff spot.

            Sophomore Josh Goulet (Nashua, N.H.) began the summer with the Wisconsin Woodchucks of the Northwoods League.  Signed as a late pick-up "temp" player when he caught the eye of the coaching staff, Goulet led the team in stolen bases (8) and hit a respectable .244 against some of the top pitching in the nation. Goulet was later picked up by his local Nashua Silver Knights, who went on to win the Futures Collegiate Baseball League (FCBL) Championship.  Junior Taylor Doyle (Peterborough, N.H.) had three of Nashua's wins on the mound, pitching 39 innings in 12 appearances, striking out 27 on his way to a 4.84 era.  Doyle also participated in the league's Professional Scout Day.  Also helping Nashua to the FCBL Championship was junior Cam Ruziak (Sterling, Mass.) and sophomore David Sampson (Bellingham, Mass.). Sophomore Chris Mansour (Lowell, Mass.) and CCRI transfer Tyler Lamonda (Auburn, MA) made appearances with the Wachusett Dirt Dawgs.
