Griffin St. Onge to Attend St. Anselm College and Play Baseball

November 25, 2016

 

Griffin St. Onge signed his National Letter of Intent Wednesday, Nov. 16 to play baseball for St. Anselm College.  He will enroll in their 3-2 Engineering program, studying engineering physics at St. Anselm’s for three years and then transferring to the University of Massachusetts-Lowell to study engineering for two years.  Upon completion, he will graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree in physics from St. Anselm and a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering from UMass-Lowell.  Griffin felt that attending a liberal arts college will help sharpen his communication and presentation skills to round out his engineering studies and better prepare him for work after college.

Griffin became a regular starter for Campbell High School’s varsity team his junior year.  He went 5-1, pitching 39.1 innings with a 1.78 ERA and striking out a team-high 52 batters.  Griffin was invited to play in the 2016 Junior Underwood Games at St. Anselm College.  He was named to the 2016 NH Division 3 All-State First Team and the 2016 Nashua Telegraph First Team All-Stars. He has been playing with his summer team, the New England Reds, since 2012 and this past summer went 5-2 with a 1.537 ERA and striking out 55 batters in 41 innings of work.  Griffin also ran cross country for two years and played JV basketball for two years.

Griffin received offers from St. Joseph’s College, U-Mass-Dartmouth, Clark University and St. Anselm College.  After visiting each campus, including overnight visits, he decided that St. Anselm College would be a good academic and athletic fit.  Even though this big decision is behind him, he has not slowed down.  He is currently taking all Advanced Placement and honors classes, and he and two friends are coaching a youth basketball team for their senior project.
