GLENDIVE – Dawson Community College sophomore infielder Trevor Meier has committed to play at Lakeland University beginning this fall.
Meier came to Dawson after graduating from Columbus High School. He played his legion ball with the Laurel Dodgers. In his freshman campaign, Meier was second on the team in both hits and RBIs, and ranked third in runs scored. He started all but one of DCC’s 28 games.
As a sophomore Meier raised his batting average by almost 20 points to .299, hit twice as many doubles and raised his slugging percentage by almost 100 points, finishing at .403.
Meier was also selected as a two-time Mon-Dak Conference scholar athlete.
“We are extremely proud and happy for Trevor,” said Bucs head coach Chris Lewis. “He had a great career for us. He started just about every game in his career, demonstrated a great ability to make adjustments and did a good job in helping those around him. We knew he was a lock down defender coming in, but his offensive game really improved from his freshman to sophomore season. This last season he really helped the new guys in learning how to handle failure at the college level. He may not be flashy, or a showcase style player, but he is a baseball player through and through and he is a true student athlete. It will be fun to watch him make an impact at Lakeland.”
Lakeland is located in Plymouth, Wisc., and competes in the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference.
