Washington senior John Hamill will continue his baseball career at St. Andrews University in Laurinburg, N.C. in the fall.

Hamill made his commitment official in front of coaches, family and friends in the Washington High School gym. He’s pictured with his parents, Jeffrey and Victoria Hamill along with some of his baseball teammates.

The right-hander developed into the Pam Pack’s ace this spring, going 5-0 in Eastern Plains Conference games, where hitters averaged .216 against him. The Pack finished second in the league and Hamill earned All-Conference recognition.

Overall, Hamill went 7-0 with a 1.95 ERA and 42 strikeouts in 50.1 innings.

He won the team pitcher of the year and the coaches award.

St. Andrews is a member of the NAIA and finished 37-17 in the Appalachian Athletic Conference.
