Bomasuto Having Early-Season Success With Tribunes
Dunkirk Senior High School Class of 2011 alum Vinny Bomasuto is off to a quick start for the Monroe Community College Tribunes baseball team at the plate and on the mound.
Through 14 games, the sophomore is third on the team in batting average (.383), second in RBIs (11), second in hits (18), tied for first in doubles (4) and is fourth in runs scored (9). Bomasuto has an on-base percentage of .456, good enough for second on the team and his slugging .617, also good enough for second. He also leads the team with six stolen bases and has hit one home run in helping MCC to a 8-6 record.
Playing mainly infield and outfield, Bomasuto has also spent time on the mound, including a start on March 15 that saw the righty allow two runs over 6-1/3 innings. He struck out two in the winning effort, as the Tribunes beat Phoenix College, 7-3. On the season, Bomasuto is 1-0, has tossed 9-2/3 innings, allowed 12 hits, struck out four, walked three and is pitching to a 2.79 earned-run average.
Time With D-II Tusculum Pioneers
Former Dunkirk standout catcher Joe Polichetti is currently hitting .289 through 25 games with the Tusculum Pioneers, a NCAA Division II program located in Tusculum, Tenn.
Polichetti, has seen most of his plate appearances come as a designated hitter, as he has also caught six games and played first base once. Of his 22 hits on the season, Polichetti has a pair of doubles to go with eight RBIs for the 18-10 Pioneers, which play in the South Atlantic Conference.
Bailen Named to
All-ECAC First Team
Fredonia native Nick Bailen, a senior defenseman for the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, was recently named to the East Coast Athletic Conference's Hockey First Team.
Bailen led his team in goals (12), assists (19) and points (31), helping the Engineers to a 18-14-5 record. In 22 conference contests, Bailen recorded nine goals and 10 assists. He was twice named ECAC Player of the Week. Bailen is 12th nationally in both points and assists for defensemen.
If RPI, ranked No. 19 nationally, is left out of the NCCA Division I 16-team tournament, Bailen will finish his college career with 33 goals, 72 assists, 105 points and is just the fourth Engineers' blueliner to eclipse 100 career points. His best season came in 2010-11 when he scored eight goals and collected 28 assists.
