One Titan is about to start the next chapter of his baseball life, and for another it’s just a matter of time.
Wilbraham & Monson Academy’s Jack Feltovic ’22 and Liam Shea-Gallagher ’24 were named to the New England Prep School Athletic Council All-League team for the Cleary Division following the 2022 season.
Jack was WMA’s go-to player, serving as the top starter on the mound and batting third in the lineup. He will play next season at Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts. Liam batted leadoff, and shifted defensively from centerfield to catcher to fill a void at that position.
Coach Jamie Gouin regarding Jack: “Jack was the ace of the staff since Day One. Gritty and determined, it was hard to take him out of the game once he was placed on the mound. He hit over .400 this season and led our team in almost every pitching category. Jack made a powerful impression on our NEPSAC opponents.”
Coach Gouin regarding Liam: “Liam was everything a coach could ask for in a ball player. He played short, centerfield and catcher. Liam recorded multiple outfield assists, threw out runners trying to steal and assisted in numerous double plays. As a leadoff hitter he batted over .340 and led the team in stolen bases and runs scored, all as a sophomore.”
Jack on his season: “Playing in one of the top leagues in New England, we faced countless future college players and even some professional prospects, and to be recognized with such a talented group is truly an honor. I think that this selection is a testament to our coaching staff and our teammates, because without them, we would not have been ready to compete at such a high level. I’m incredibly appreciative of the selection and I’m looking forward to seeing more Titans on this list in the coming years.”
Liam on his season: “It was an honor to find out I made First Team. Last year I made Second Team as a freshman, so to see my improvement from just a year was awesome. I was one of three sophomores to qualify for First Team, showing that the work I put in has been paying off. It was a great year and WMA Baseball overall showed that we have the ability to start winning games. It was great having Coach Gouin as the baseball coach for his first year and the seniors will definitely be missed, but we are coming back ready for year 147.”
