COLBY:: TREVELONI, PARKER EARN MVP HONORS FOR BASEBALL TEAM

WATERVILLE, Maine -- Junior outfielder Matt Treveloni earned the Eddie Roundy Award as Most Valuable Player and sophomore pitcher Brooks Parker was the Jack Coombs Award winner as Most Valuable Pitcher for the Colby College baseball team.

Treveloni was second on the team in batting average (.333), first in total hits (39), second in runs (16), and second in on-base percentage (.378). Treveloni also had a .968 fielding percentage in right field in 63 total chances.

Parker had eight starts and 10 appearances at the Mules' number one starter. He threw 49.0 innings and had a 3.31 earned run average. He had the best strikeout/walk ratio, allowing just 10 walks while striking out 40.

Tyler Mulberry, a sophomore shortstop, was the Robert "Tink" Wagner Award winner as Most Improved Player, while sophomore Jackson Ward was the Warren Judd Award honoree as Most Improved Pitcher.

Mulberry finished third on the team in batting average (.304), led the Mules in doubles (10), was first in RBI (17), third in runs (15), and third in on-base percentage (.352). Playing shortstop for the first time in college, Mulberry had a solid .943 fielding percentage in nearly 160 chances.

Ward was the closer for the Mules and had four saves, a 2-2 record, and was second on the team in earned run average (2.57). He pitched 21 innings and the opponent hit just .211 against him. Ward struck out 18 and walked nine in 15 appearances.

Taimu Ito was given the Rookie of the Year Award, senior Grant Lowensohn was honored with the Tom Dexter/Chap Nelson Coaches Award, and senior co-captains Andrew Della Volpe and Noah Tocci shared the John Winkin "Passion for the Game" Award.

Ito led Colby in innings pitched (50.2), had eight starts in 12 appearances, and was third in earned run average (2.84). He struck out 39 batters, had two complete games, and one shutout.

Lowensohn, a senior, was a utility infielder for the Mules in a four-year career. Della Volpe had 54 career hits and had 13 starts or more at catcher in all four years. Tocci was used mostly as a designated hitter or in pinch-hitting situations.

Sidelines: Remembering Wally Covell
Longtime coach leaves indelible mark in state

“I guess I did tell him, a couple times, he was a lot like the way I approach things. He was old school,” Hersom said. “He commanded total respect. He paid attention to detail and his work ethic was strong. I think that went a long way with our kids… Our players at the time were pretty attached to him.”

A 1955 graduate of the University of Maine, Covell made his coaching mark at the high school and collegiate level. In the 1960s, he built a juggernaut football program at Orono High School. In an eight-season span between 1961 and 1968, Covell’s Red Riots were undefeated twice, and had just one loss four other seasons. He succeeded John Winkin as head baseball coach at Colby College, coaching the Mules from 1974-1984. Covell was inducted in the Maine Baseball Hall of Fame in 2003.

Covell was the head baseball coach at Lawrence for much of the time he was an assistant on Hersom’s football coaching staff.

#LEC30 Top Moment | Southern Maine Baseball


PAWTUCKET, R.I. - Arguably the most successful sport sponsored by the Little East Conference has been baseball. Member schools have won a combined six National Championships, with three coming after the conference began sponsoring baseball in 1996. Of the success that the conference has had in the sport, few can match the consistent success of the Southern Maine Huskies.

Baseball and Southern Maine go back a long time. The program came into existence in 1927, and has been a staple sport with the institution for almost 90 years. Upon the implementation of more regulated scheduling in 1970, the school began facing more consistent and challenging competition. After a shaky start throughout the 1970’s the program began to gather momentum in the 1980’s, with the team only posting one losing record during the decade. After making strides under Coach David Drew, the program became an even more dominant force upon the hiring of current head coach Ed Flaherty in 1986.

Southern Maine’s dominance on the diamond hit the national level upon their first National Championship in 1991, the first National Championship won in the entire State of Maine. The Huskies finished the season with a 38-7 record, at that time the most single season wins in program history. During that season the team hit a current program best .382 at the plate, and finished the year winning 21 of their final 22 games. They would capture their second National Championship following the 1997 season. The team compiled a 39-9 mark, and an 11-3 record in the conference. They went on to capture the first LEC tournament championship over UMass Dartmouth, in route to their 15-1 victory in the NCAA championship game against Wooster College.

In recent seasons the program has seen continued success both against conference and national competition. The 2013 season saw the team set a program record with 46 wins and an appearance in the NCAA championship game. The Huskies fell in the title game against Linfield 4-1, but were still honored in other ways for their tremendous season. Three players were named first team All-Americans, with outfielder Tucker White also capturing the LEC Player of the Year honor. Flaherty was named the LEC Coach of the Year as well.

The program has compiled a total of 1,243 wins in its history, with 965 of them coming under the management of Flaherty, a 2013 inductee into the Little East Conference Hall of Fame. He is also a member of the Huskie Hall of Fame at Southern Maine, the Maine Sports Hall of Fame, the Maine Baseball Hall of Fame, and the Association of Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame.

Southern Maine’s chief rival in the region has been Eastern Connecticut State. The two teams have met 109 times, with Eastern Connecticut holding a 64 to 45 advantage over the Huskies. The teams have met five times in the championship round of the LEC tournament, and they have combined for 14 tournament championships in the 20 seasons in which the conference has sponsored baseball.

The historic competitive success the LEC has achieved throughout the 30 years, beginning as a basketball only conference in 1986 and expanding into today's 19-Championship Sport Conference, will continue to make academic and athletic strides as the LEC continues to be the premier Division III conference of the New England region.

The Little East Conference was formed in 1986 when six public institutions gathered to create a single sport athletic conference and has expanded into what is now New England's premier athletic conference for public institutions in NCAA Division III. The LEC features 19 Championship Sports and sponsors quality competition in every season for our student athletes while following the Division III mission of passion, responsibility, sportsmanship and citizenship.

#LEC30 Top Moment | LEC Baseball Teams Win Back-to-Back National Titles in 1997, 1998

PAWTUCKET, R.I. – The Little East Conference was developed as a basketball only conference in 1986 and baseball didn't become an official Little East Conference sponsored sport until 1997. The Little East Conference inherited several great baseball programs, including Eastern Connecticut State and the University of Southern Maine and the two programs made a historic statement by putting the Little East Conference on the baseball map after winning back-to-back national championships in 1997 and 1998.

Both programs had already claimed NCAA Division III National Championships prior to 1997 and have been receiving national recognition for nearly 20-years. Eastern Connecticut State became the first program in New England to win multiple national championships after winning the titles in 1982 and 1990. Southern Maine reached the pinnacle of the Division III baseball world in 1991.

Both programs were led by head coaches that would go on to be inducted into several Halls of Fame, including the American Baseball Coaches Association. The Warriors from Eastern Connecticut State were led by head coach Bill Holowaty and the Huskies from Southern Maine are led by head coach Ed Flaherty. In their careers, Coach Holowaty and Coach Flaherty have combined for over 2,300 wins, with over 77 years of combined coaching experience and have combined for six NCAA Division III National Championships, including back-to-back titles in 1997 (USM) and 1998 (ECSU). Southern Maine defeated Wooster 15-1 in Salem, Virginia to claim the 1997 NCAA Division III championship and then Eastern Connecticut State took home the 1998 championship after defeating Montclair State 16-1 in the title game.


During the 1990's, the Huskies had the 13th best record in all of NCAA Division III, winning 305 games, 119 defeats and one tie for a .719 winning percentage. The Warriors placed 19th by winning 299 games with 124 defeats and two ties for a .706 winning percentage.

The national success the two programs achieved during the first two years of baseball under the Little East Conference umbrella helped put the LEC on the map as a nationally recognized baseball conference with the continued success of the LEC members like Southern Maine and Eastern Connecticut State as well as the emergence of programs such as UMass Boston. The Beacons won a pair of NCAA Regional Tournament games last season after winning its first regular season title.

The historic competitive success the LEC has achieved throughout the 30 years, beginning as a basketball only conference in 1986 and expanding into today's 19-Championship Sport Conference, will continue to make academic and athletic strides as the LEC continuesto be the premier Division III conference of the New England region.

The Little East Conference was formed in 1986 when six public institutions gathered to create a single sport athletic conference and has expanded into what is now New England's premier athletic conference for public institutions in NCAA Division III.

USM’s Jake Dexter follows brother’s footsteps to Sanford

Jake Dexter’s family legacy in Maine baseball is important enough, but he doesn’t let it define him.

Jake is the son of Tom Dexter, who headed the baseball program at Colby College for 15 years and now serves as an assistant there. Jake also is the younger brother of Sam Dexter, who excelled as a shortstop at the University of Southern Maine and was selected by the Chicago White Sox in the 23rd round of the 2016 MLB draft.

This summer, Jake Dexter — also a standout player at USM — will follow in the footsteps of his brother Sam by playing for the Sanford Mainers.

"We were very interested in Jake Dexter when his brother said he was better than he was," said Aaron Izaryk, head coach of the Sanford Mainers. "Jake’s path to a roster spot in Sanford had a lot to do with his brother and the presence he had on this team. That said, I think Jake will carve his own legacy here."
