Congratulations to Jets baseball player Remington Monce, honored with a 2017 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division II Baseball ABCA/Rawlings Golden Glove Award!
Monce, originally from Lagro, Ind., pitches for the Jets, playing in 12 games with 10 starts for a 7-1 record. An outstanding defensive player, he had a 1.000 fielding percentage on the season. He is a general education major who hopes to transfer to Purdue University to study business and play baseball.
"Remington was stellar all year on the mound defensively, which helped him win big games," said Rick Smith, head baseball coach. "He was 7-1 on the year and will be expected to have another good season."
Monce looks forward to his sophomore season with the Jets. "I was shocked when Coach Smith sent me a text saying I won it (the Golden Glove Award). I didn't know I played well enough to get national attention. I'm thankful that I was able to achieve this honor," Monce said. While the Jets lost some key players, the pitching staff is stronger than ever, he said, with some good freshmen joining the team. "I can't wait for the spring to come back around!"
