Garrett O’Callaghan, a 2014 Nevada Union graduate, put forth another strong showing to close out an impressive senior season with the Holy Names University baseball team.

O’Callaghan, a senior left-handed pitcher, took the bump for the Hawks against Concordia College last Thursday and struck out eight in 7.1 innings. He allowed three earned runs in the game. O’Callaghan departed with the game tied 3-3, and Holy Names eventually lost 4-3. O’Callaghan did not figure into the decision.

For the season, O’Callaghan started 11 games, went 4-3 overall, struck out 79 batters in 69 innings pitched and finished with a 2.48 ERA.

The Hawks wrapped their season with a 16-32 overall record. Holy Names is a Division II school that competes in the Pacific West Conference.

During O’Callaghan’s senior year at Nevada Union he was an All-Sierra Foothill League First Team selection in baseball, and an All-SFL Second Team selection in basketball.


Nerissa Eason, a 2016 Bear River graduate, and the Oregon State softball team closed the season by taking two out three against the University of Utah.

Eason, a junior pitcher, appeared in the second game of the series. The hard throwing righty pitched four innings of relief in a 6-2 loss to the Utes. Eason allowed five hits and two earned runs while striking out three.

For the season, Eason appeared in 10 games, notched a 3-0 overall record with 33 strikeouts in 34.1 innings pitched and closed with a 4.08 ERA.

The Beavers end the season with a 26-19 overall mark, but did not get an at-large bid to the NCAA tourney. Oregon State is a Division I school that competes in the Pac-12.
