Collegiate Baseball Career Comes to an End for Grafton’s Lacroix

Saturday, June 08, 2013

 

Nick Lacroix played four successful seasons with Franklin Pierce.

Grafton's Nick Lacroix recently completed his collegiate baseball career with the Franklin Pierce Ravens of the Division II Northeast-10 Conference, leaving behind a legacy of nothing but winning and success.

Taking part in two Division II College World Series while at Franklin Pierce as the East Region champions, Lacroix has been a starter since his freshman year for the Ravens, something that not many players can say for a storied program like Franklin Pierce.

Stepping right in

As a freshman, Lacroix instantly made an impact, earning him American Baseball Coaches Association First Team All-East Region, Northeast-10 Second Team All-Conference, and Northeast-10 Conference All-Rookie Team. Lacroix hit .294 in his freshman season, while driving in 50 runs, good for second in the entire conference.

Junior outburst

In his sophomore season, Lacroix saw his production go down quite a bit, hitting .306, but only driving in 21 runs on the season. However, that didn't slow him down in his junior season. Lacroix had a monster junior season, hitting .355, while stealing 23 bases, driving in 44 runs, and scoring 42 runs of his own. For his efforts, he earned American Baseball Coaches Association All-East Region First Team, Daktronics All-East Region Second Team, and Northeast-10 Second Team All-Conference.

Finishing strong

Lacroix went out with a bang this past season, leading his team to the Division II College World Series in his senior season, while hitting .294 and driving in 34 runs on the season. Franklin Pierce's run came to an end when they lost to Grand Valley State 10-3 at the World Series in Cary, North Carolina.

The Ravens will now face the tough task of filling a gap in their outfield that has been occupied by Lacroix for the past four seasons.
