TENNERTON – Glenville State is getting another solid Buckhannon-Upshur baseball player next season after current Buccaneer senior Wesley Rosencrance signed on to become a Pioneer.
Rosencrance signed at a recent ceremony at the high school.
He will join fellow teammates Nick Calef-Boring and Trey Leigh at Glenville State.
Rosencrance was used primarily as a pitcher for the Bucs this past season.
He saw action in nine games and pitched 14 innings getting one start.
He compiled a 1-1 record with seven strikeouts.
For Rosencrance, making the decision to stay close by and attend Glenville State was all about family.
“It means everything to take my game next the level,” remarked Rosencrance. “Having my father and step-mom, who I refer to as my mother, close by is very important. Their support has meant so much. I always have someone there to watch me and pick me up in the bad times and celebrate the good times. The fact that they can easily make the trip to Glenville and watch me play when they can is fantastic.” Rosencrance also said it was the academics and the beauty of the campus that led him to Glenville State.
“It started off with me talking to the administration and the baseball staff,” noted Rosencrance. “I met with the staff and the team and it just started to roll from there.”
It was also important for him to sign on the same day as his friend Trey Leigh.
“He is my best friend,” stated Rosencrance. “We do everything together. We have always wanted to sign together.”
“This is a great day for Wesley,” remarked B-U head coach Adam Squires. “Wesley worked very hard and put in the time and the effort to make himself a better player. He allowed himself to get to this level where he can continue this career at the college level. What Wesley did is what we always tell that team and that is if you work hard and put the time in good things will happen.”
