Panther baseball players moving on

CAROLINA FOREST - Carolina Forest baseball has some high expectations this year, and it certainly has the talent to compete. On Thursday the Panthers had two players sign Division One Letters of Intent.

Catcher Robert Jolly has signed on to play at Clemson. He was the Panthers' team MVP last year while hitting .425 and driving in 13 runs.

"There are some other very good programs that I could have committed too, but academic-wise, and school-wise it's probably the best decision I could have made and is the best fit for me and I'm extremely excited for the opportunity that has been presented for me," he said.

Meanwhile, Outfielder Ryan Flynn has decided to join The Citadel. Flynn hit .349 with two home runs last season. The thought of playing Division One baseball is something he only dreamed about before, but is happy to see this day come..

"The program is just a really good program," Flynn explained. "They play good teams every year like USC. They play Clemson a lot, and they're usually one of the top teams if not the top team in Southern Conference."
