Cody Eaton/Miles CC
RIDERS SENIOR CODY EATON SIGNS WITH MILES CC

Riders senior pitcher Cody Eaton has agreed verbally to play college baseball at Miles Community College, in Miles City Montana. Miles CC is a Division 1 Junior College and competes in the NJCAA Region IX District. Eaton made his decision this week after narrowing it down between several schools. Miles is a program of great tradition, winning 13 consecutive Conference Championships at the Division 2 level and recently moved to the Division 1 level in 2015.

Miles CC Head Coach Jeff Brabant on Eaton: "We are excited to have another Gillette product in our program. Knowing how Coach Perleberg runs his program, we know we will be getting a college ready athlete. We expect Cody to come in and hit the ground running in the fall and have a great career in a Pioneer uniform."

Eaton is a three-year starter for the Riders Varsity program. The left handed pitcher has been a key piece to the Riders pitching staff the last two seasons. Eaton is known for his competitiveness on the mound and his ability to excel in big games. He won some huge games for the Riders State Championship team last season down the stretch. He finished 2014 with a record of 4-6 with a 3.42 ERA. He set an all-time Riders record in 2014 by appearing in 31 games on the mound.

Coach Perleberg on Eaton: "Cody is the ultimate team-mate and is as unselfish of a person and player that you will find. He is a great representation of what Riders baseball is all about. What makes Cody special is his willingness to want the baseball in the biggest moments. He has never been a guy to shy away from competition and believes in himself and his abilities. His competitive drive, along with his ability to attack the strike zone will make him a great fit for Coach Brabant at Miles CC. He has been a very dependable, dedicated player in our program for the last three years. The Riders family would like to congratulate Cody on his signing."

Cody will graduate from Campbell County High School this May. He is the son of Patrick and April Eaton of Gillette.

Otero is a Division 1 Junior College and competes in the NJCAA Region IX District. Durgin narrowed down his decision last week from multiple schools to go to Otero. Otero finished 30-26 last season and lost in the championship game of the Region IX tournament. This season they are currently 31-23 overall and finished 24-12 in conference play. Durgin becomes the 35th player from the Riders program since 2006 to earn a college baseball opportunity.

Coach Carillo on Durgin: "We are extremely excited about signing Ian to come play for us next year. He is a great kid who will come in and work hard for us. He will make an immediate impact for us on the mound as a freshman. We look forward to working with him and having a high character kid like him in the program.

Durgin has played at the Varsity level for the Riders since he was a freshman in high school. His contributions as a pitcher and infielder have been well noted, and he was a key piece to the Riders 2014 State Championship team last season. To this point, Durgin has won 14 total games in his career on the mound and is the current ace of the Riders staff this season. Last season he started 16 games on the mound, which is a Riders all-time record. He has been among the team's leaders in innings pitched each of the last two years. Last season he also hit .308 at the plate.

Coach Perleberg on Durgin: "One of the most gratifying things about my job is seeing quality young men such as Ian, move on to chase his dream. Ian defines what Riders baseball is about through his daily commitment and dedication to our program. He brings a blue-collar type work ethic everyday and is never satisfied with where he is at as a player. One thing that always stands out about Ian is his willingness to spend time working with younger players at the field, as well as the amount of time that he puts in working on his own game. Ian's ability to out-work guys and his personal drive to be the best that he can be will take him a long way not only in baseball, but most importantly in life. The Riders family would like to congratulate Ian on his signing with Otero."

Ian currently has a 3.95 cumulative GPA at Campbell County High School in Gillette and will graduate this May. Ian is the son of Shane and Jo Durgin of Gillette.
