Infielder Darrell "Boom" Anderson, will be attending the University of Maryland Eastern Shore in the fall and will redshirt his freshman year. Anderson battled injuries all year but still managed to set the state record for career hits (138), breaking the record of 131 hits set by Jason Maxey of Hammond.

First baseman Kris Dixon will be attending Thiel College in Pennsylvania and plans to walk-on to the baseball team.

"I'm very proud of all these guys and it's a great feeling knowing they will continue their academic and athlete careers at the collegiate level," Boles said. "I feel like we underachieved somewhat this past season and it was tough, with injuries and other issues. But, seeing these guys move on to matriculate on the collegiate level is what it's all about. This was a very special group of young men and I'm going to miss them."
