Higher Level of Hitting for Haldane, Beacon Grads

The college baseball season has begun, and two Highlands residents have already notched dramatic hits.

At DeLand, Florida, on Feb. 16, Matt Forlow, a 2013 Haldane grad, hit a grand slam in the fifth inning of Manhattan College’s opener at Stetson, giving the Jaspers a 5-2 lead. (Stetson came back for a 6-5 win.) Forlow, a second baseman, hit .305 last season; he is playing this year as a graduate student.

On Feb. 17, Patrick Schetter, who graduated from Beacon High School in 2014, singled home the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth for SUNY Cortland in its Feb. 17 opener at Salisbury College in Maryland. The senior infielder, who finished 3-for 5 at the plate, hit .377 for the Red Dragons last season.
