Avalon baseball standout heads to NY

phov1acwrihyopo7NYACK, NY - Head Baseball Coach Matt Cornacchione has announced the signing of Josh Brunvoll, a transfer from Montgomery College Germantown in suburban Maryland, to an NCAA National Letter of Intent.

Brunvoll played for Avalon High School from 2008 to 2011 and holds the school's single season, and all-time home run records.

He chose Nyack, an NCAA Division II school in New York and will join former Avalon baseball player Mike Smith. Smith appeared in 29 contests for the Warriors as a freshman, starting at right or left field and also at  designated hitter.

Coach Cornacchione states, "We are very excited to add Josh to our team this offseason.  He has the ability to play all infield spots and has the potential to be a very solid offensive player.  Josh has the combination of athleticism and character that every program is looking to add.  We're looking forward to the impact he will make here."

"Nyack stood out because it was a Christian school," said Brunvoll. He also looks forward to the competitive baseball program, along with the great job opportunities and internships within the New York suburban area.

Brunvoll spent the past two years at Montgomery College, in Germantown, playing his freshman year and redshirting this past season. As a freshman, he started 40 games and finished with a .320 batting average as Montgomery earned a trip to the Junior College World Series in Tyler, Tx.

During his redshirt year, he came back to Avalon as an assistant coach. He worked with hitters and coached first base as the Black Knights went on to win their fourth state championship.

As an Avalon Senior, Brunvoll was named both Old Line Baseball Conference Co-MVP, and First Team All-Baseball by Gazette Newspapers. He batted .539 with seven round trippers, and 44 runs batted. 

He was a member of two Avalon state championship teams in 2009 and 2010. In the '09 contest his leaping catch at second base off a line drive was the final out, and his three-run homer in 2010 was pivitol in securing the victory.

Nyack is looking to position itself to return to the CACC tournament in 2014, after an 8-12 CACC campaign in 2013 left them one victory shy of postseason play.

At Nyack, Brunvoll plans to major in Computer Sciences and is expected to challenge for a starting position in the infield.
