July 23 Dawson Community College baseball alumnus, Hunter Balmer, signed a national letter of intent to play baseball in North Carolina for Mount Olive College in Mount Olive.
Balmer, a Brigham City, UT native, will travel over 2,000 miles to reach his new home - a NCAA Division II institution that plays in the Carolina Conference.
This past season the MOC Trojans had a 44-10 record, winning the regular season and tournament championships. Mount Olive also won the 2008 NCAA Division II National Championship. They spent several weeks this season ranked number one in the nation.
“Hunter had and outstanding career at Dawson Community College, capping it off by hitting .426 this past season. Although he played shortstop at DCC, he will most likely move to third or first base for the Trojans” DCC head coach Aaron Carroll said in his announcement Monday.
