CATAWBA – Three Bandys High baseball players have announced they’ve signed to play baseball next season at Catawba Valley Community College (CVCC).
Outfielder-pitcher Max Beam, infielder-pitcher Laz Maxwell and infielder-pitcher Elijah Carr helped the Trojans go 20-5 last season.
If all three continue to pitch in college, they’ll work directly with Red Hawks pitching coach Kris Harvey, a former Bandys baseball star who was an All-ACC player at Clemson in college and reached Class AA in minor league baseball as an outfielder and pitcher.
Beam, who throws right-handed, hit .413 with three home runs and was second-best in RBIs (23) for the Trojans, who finished second in the South Fork 2A.
Maxwell, a right-hander pitcher who won twice in three appearances last season, hit .286 and drove in 13 runs.
Carr, who also throws right-handed, went 2-1 in nine appearances and he hit .316 with 13 RBIs.
