Ethan Boyd, Brett Braker, Ryan Herrmann and Ryan Weachock stood in front of family and friends during a small presentation prior to the start of the first game. Coach Chris Howard said Boyd, a heating, ventilation and air conditioning design technology major from Roaring Spring, has proved to be a player of many talents: He has played first base, pitched and has time behind the plate a catcher. Boyd always has been willing to do whatever was necessary, which explains why he is such an important part of the team’s success. Braker, a plastics and polymer engineering technology major from Northampton, has been the anchor of the outfield during his two years as starting centerfielder. Howard believes he is the best defensive outfielder in the Penn State University Athletic Conference and has continued to prove that with his excellent play this year. A landscape technology major from Silverdale, Hermann has been a member of the team for the past two years and has been an important utility player during his time at Penn College. He consistently has been one of the first players to arrive at the park and one of the last to leave, the coach noted. Weachock, a heating, ventilation and air conditioning design technology major from Pottsville, is a two-year starter in left field whose leadership on and off the field has played an integral part in the Wildcats’ success over the past couple of years, Howard said.
