Storm baseball’s Van Scoy named honorary captain

Grant
Sophomore Grant Van Scoy was named honorary captain of the OWH's All-Nebraska two-year team.

Grant Van Scoy, who helped Southeast Community College qualify for its first berth in the National Junior College Athletic Association Division II World Series, was named honorary captain of the Omaha World-Herald’s All-Nebraska two-year baseball team. He also was named to the NJCAA Second-Team All-America list. Van Scoy is a sophomore shortstop who plans to play at the University of Illinois this fall.

“I am honored to be named captain,” the Papillion native said. “I couldn’t have done it without my coaches and teammates.”

During the past season, Van Scoy had 75 hits, 48 runs batted in, 12 doubles and eight home runs. He had a .364 batting average with 27 stolen bases.

“Grant had a tremendous career here at SCC, and to see him receive this honor is outstanding,” said Dion Parks, Storm head coach. “He has worked at every aspect of his game to get to the opportunities that are in front of him. As good of a baseball player as he is, he’s a better young man. We are very proud of his accomplishments at SCC.”

Van Scoy said the best part about playing for the Storm was getting to know all his teammates during the past two years. Now he’s looking forward to taking his game to the next level in the Big 10 with the Fighting Illini.

“I’m looking forward to playing at the highest level of college baseball, playing in the Big 10 tournament in Omaha in front of my friends and family, and I’m hoping we can make it to the College World Series,” he said.

This summer, Van Scoy is playing ball with the Swift Current 57s, a collegiate baseball team in Saskatchewan, Canada.
