RIDERS OUTFIELDER SIGNS WITH DIVISION 1 JUNIOR COLLEGE

Riders senior outfielder Jarran Arbach has signed a letter of intent to play college baseball at Otero Junior College in La Junta, CO. Otero is a Division 1 Junior College and competes in the NJCAA Region IX District. Arbach made his decision in January after attending the college for a visit and tryout. Otero finished 30-26 last season and lost in the championship game of the Region IX tournament.

Coach Carillo on Arbach: "We are extremely excited about Jarran signing to play for us.  He is a very good athlete who can swing it.  We believe if Jarran brings a good work ethic day in and day out that he can be an impact player for us right away as a freshman.  He is the type of student athlete that we are looking for.  He works hard and is a high character kid with good a good GPA.  We are excited about his future."

Arbach is a three-year starter for the Riders Varsity program. The centerfielder and lead-off hitter was a key piece to the Riders 2014 State Championship team. He hit .322 as a junior and .284 as a sophomore. He has led the team both years in stolen bases with 45 as a junior and 42 as a sophomore. He has also been amongst the team leaders each year in games played, runs scored, and on-base percentage.

Coach Perleberg on Arbach: "Jarran has truly made himself into the player that he is today due to his outstanding work ethic. He has been a very dedicated player and person in our program for many years. Jarran has been an off-season award winner in our program the last two years and spends a great deal of time working on his game. He is a great role-model for our program due to his character both on and off the field.  Jarran's speed, athleticism, and work-ethic will turn him into a fine college player for the Rattlers and Coach Carillo. The Riders family would like to congratulate Jarran on his signing." 
 
Jarran currently has a 3.8 cum GPA at Campbell County High School in Gillette and will graduate this May. Jarran is the son of Ray and Tanya Arbach of Gillette.
