Cass Via (Fruita, CO) and Erik Mattingly (Lakewood, CO) were first teamers. Ben Warner (Canbarra, ACT) and Kyle Ben Warner Oestereicher (Westminister, CO) were tabbed as second team. Sloan Soulia (Falcon, CO), C.J. Gillman (Littleton, CO), M.J. Sartin (Hamburg, AR), and Heath Wyatt (Searcy, AR) all made Honorable Mention. Mattingly also took home Freshman of the Year honors in the Jayhawk West, head coach Chris Finnegan was awarded some hardware as well when he was named Coach of the Year for the conference.

2010 Season Preview Staying on top and maintaining success can be one of the more difficult things to do in sports. The Garden City Community College men's baseball team is looking to do just that. Fifteen returning sophomores bring a wealth of experience at multiple positions to this year’s team. “We have a great group of sophomores this year that are hungry to win again,” head coach Chris Finnegan said. “The freshmen have made great strides since they stepped on campus in the fall and are ready to make an impact. ” Infield

Cody Schramm

Seeing time at the hot corner this spring will be a familiar face in Luke Kordsmeier (Benton, AR). Kordsmeier returns after starting fifty-two games for the Busters last year. Also seeing time this year will be freshman Axel Rivera (Yabucoa, PR). Axel is a very talented player who has the potential to be a major contributor this year. Luke Kordsmeier

Playing first base for the Busters will be the duo of CSU transfer Alex Kelly and former Omaha Central graduate Brad Benes. Kelly who is blessed with outstanding tools, will be counted on to give the team a presence in the middle of the lineup. Benes brings a sweet swing from both sides of the plate to the table that will provide flexibility to the lineup. Alex Kelly

2010 Season Preview

The middle infield will have a new look to it this season. Moving from the hot corner to the middle infield will be Tony DeCarlo (Golden, CO). Tony will see time at both shortstop and second base this year, while also providing the team with experience in the middle. Another player switching positions this spring is Cody Schramm (Omaha, NE). Schramm moves over to second base after seeing extensive time at first last spring. Rounding out the middle infield are Colby Tessendorf (Newton, KS) and Sam Thornton (Canaberra, ACT). Both players will look to build on their fall seasons and will see extensive playing time this spring.


2010 Season Preview Catchers The Busters head into the spring deep at the catching position. C.J. Gillman returns after an All-Conference season last year. He will give the Busters a quality backstop this spring. Also looking to make a large contribution, both offensively and defensively, will be Arkansas State University transfer Kevin Burgi (Jonesboro, AR). Isaiah Mellington (Wichita, KS) and Brad Hoggatt (Garden City, KS) round out the catching positions. Both players come off of successful fall season and look to continue their success this spring.

SEASON PREVIEW

Outfield This will be an area of depth for the team this spring. Leading the way is returning 1 st Team All Conference outfielder Erik Mattingly. After starting forty games last year, Mattingly will be looking to improve from last year’s successful freshman campaign. Returning to the outfield this spring will be M.J. Sartin (Hamburg, AR) and Andrew Phelan (Littleton, CO). Both players come off of successful freshman seasons and should be forces offensively. Rounding out the outfield will be Omaha native Blake Brisson and Jackson Bynum. These two will man centerfield this spring for the BustAndrew Phelan ers. They posses the ability to change the game with their speed and should provide great defense in centerfield. Pitchers Pitching will be a key area for the 2010 squad. Returning to the mound this spring will be Joey Cifuentes (Clinton, AR) and Erik Mattingly (Lakewood, CO). Cifuentes and Mattingly will be looked upon to anchor the staff after seeing significant time as starters during their freshmen seasons. Freshmen Brenton Higgins (Mulvane, KS) and Alex Ellison (Littleton, CO) should see time as starters for the Busters. Higgins is coming off an impressive fall season while Ellison continues to develop into a front-of-therotation type of arm. Sophomore transfer Wade Myatt will give the team a quality left-handed option and could see time as both a starter and reliever. The bullpen will be solid with Reece McGraw (Boulder, CO), Tyler Rogers (Littleton, CO) and Joemar Melendez (Yabucoa, PR) giving Finnegan a quality trio of relievers. Dustin Lamb (Garden City, KS), Brandon Roberts (Lawton, OK), Jordan Lies (Wichita, KS), Adam Warner (Canaberra, ACT), Brandon Beach (Eaton, CO), Kyle Harter (Greeley, CO), and Tyler Williamson (Castle Rock, CO) will round out the pitching staff. All of these pitchers will be expected to throw quality innings this spring for the Busters. Joey Cifuentes

The KJCCC One of the NJCAA’s most prolific conferences, the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference is dedicated to achieving the highest goals in the integration of academic and athletic endeavors. Individually, member schools have long been respected for successes both in its classrooms and its stadiums. In all, the KJCCC is home to more than 3,000 student-athletes on 233 teams in the 19 men’s and women’s KJCCC-sponsored sports. The men’s programs regulated by the conference include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, indoor/outdoor track and field, soccer, tennis and wrestling. The KJCCC-regulated women’s programs include basketball, cross country, golf, indoor/outdoor track and field, soccer, softball, tennis and volleyball. Organized in 1923, the Jayhawk Community College Conference arose out of the special needs of Kansas community colleges to create an organization which would further the best interests of intercollegiate athletics. Originally named the Kansas Public Junior College Association, the name Kansas Jayhawk Junior College Conference was adopted in 1962. Thirteen years later, the name as it is known today, the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference was adopted. Composed of five members at the onset, the conference has changed its makeup several times. Long respected as the leader in academics and athletics in the NJCAA, the conference today has grown to a membership of 19 community colleges from the state of Kansas, divided into two divisions, the East and West.

A Message From “Finney� We, at Garden City Baseball, would like to send out a very special thank you to those of you who donate to Broncbuster Baseball and make it possible for our program to exist and excel. Without your generous support and donations, we would be unable to have, maintain, and upgrade the outstanding facilities which we are blessed to have and allow us to attract some of the finest talent from all over the world to our program. With your continuing support we will all only be able to get better as an organization, as coaches, and most importantly as student athletes. We would also like to thank all of the players and coaches that have donned the yellow and brown before any of us here today. You are the ones that have built the expectation for excellence and forged the winning tradition that is Broncbuster Baseball. There is a simple reason the coaching staff has three former Busters on it: pride. This pride instilled in each player that is lucky enough to lace them up every year at Williams Stadium causes a great sense of ownership in GCCC. With that being said, those of us with GCCC Baseball would like to ask all former Busters reading this while checking-up on your program to please contact us. Do not hesitate to email me any time. With the information age where it is today let us keep you up-to-date on what is going on in the world of Broncbuster Baseball. -Chris Finnegan chris.finnegan@gcccks.edu
