BEATRICE – Southeast Community College freshman outfielder, Aaron Palensky, will be taking his baseball talents to the next level and play for Coach Darin Erstad and the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
The information was confirmed to KWBE Radio by SCC Associate Head Coach and Recruiting Coordinator, Tyson Parks, by text message.
Palensky, who graduated from Papillion-LaVista South High School in Omaha, batted .417 with 77 RBI and 72 runs scored for the Storm last season. Palensky hit 18-homeruns and finished with 24-stolen bases for SCC, who concluded the season with a 42-16 record and a Regional Championship under coaches Dion and Tyson Parks.
For the second consecutive season, the Storm have six players moving up to the NCAA Division One level to continue their baseball careers.
The Huskers hope Palensky and other incoming recruits can have an immediate impact on the team, after Nebraska concluded the season with a 24-28 record, missing out on the Big Ten Conference and NCAA postseason tournaments.
