  • "VWC was my No. 1 choice because of the college's focus.  The fact that I am a name at my College rather than a number like many other colleges and universities. I also chose VWC because of the baseball program.  Coach Boothe (Nick) is a great coach that I know will push my teammates and I to achieve success."
  • Selected Virginia Wesleyan over the University of Rhode Island, the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, Misericordia University, and Wester New England College
