It's only four games and no conference outings yet, but Parker Savard is wasting little time making a name for himself as a member of the St Cloud State Huskies baseball team.
Making the jump to the NCAA Division II Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference after posting impressive numbers in two years with the Dakota County Blue Knights junior college crew, Savard has seen action in four of the five Huskies games to date.
During that stretch, in which St Cloud State posted a record of 2-3, the graduate of Bishop Alexander Carter Catholic Secondary School is hitting .333 (2/6), scoring four runs, belting a double and even being hit by a pitch.
The Huskies dropped their first three games this month before sweeping the Bemidji State Beavers 21-3 and 15-3 in a pair of outings contested in Fort Scott (Kansas) as part of a five-game in four day set.
The team will now prepare to open their NSIC campaign on March 20th and 21st, battling the Augustana Vikings in Sioux Falls (South Dakota), playing a double-header on Saturday and closing things out Sunday.
A mid-week double-header ensues as St Cloud State makes the trek to Wayne (Nebraska), taking to the diamond opposite the Wayne State Wildcats.
In addition to enjoying plenty of success with the Sudbury Voyageurs baseball program, Savard also suited up for several years with local "AAA" hockey teams, closing things off with the Sudbury Nickel Capital Wolves before being selected in the U18 OHL draft by the hometown Sudbury Wolves.
