WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. – UC Baseball had a fantastic year in 2017, bringing home the Mid-South Conference Tournament Championship. One of the key factors in that success last year was the dominance on the mound from pitcher Noah Gapp. Now, he has taken his skills back across the northern border into his home country where he has signed with the Ottawa Champions of the Cam-Am Professional Baseball League. 

Gapp, who went 10-4 last season for the Patriots with an ERA of 1.94 over 111.1 innings of work, set a number of records while he was at UC. While leading the MSC last year in wins, opponent batting average, innings pitched, strikeouts, and runs allowed. He now holds the single season record at UC for strikeouts (121) and innings pitched (111.1). His 203 career strikeouts makes him the first Patriot to ever sit 200+ batters down on strikes, making him the career leader in strikeouts as well, doing so in just two years of play.
