Brunvoll Signs NLOI

Avalon School baseball player Michael Brunvoll signed a National Letter of Intent on April 16 to play baseball at Nyack College.

Brunvoll, a 6’2″ left-handed pitcher, signed the scholarship offer at a ceremony in front of current teammates, coaches, friends and family.

He chose Nyack, an NCAA Division II school just outside of New York City, over Shepherd College and Concord University. He will join former Avalon baseball players Mike Smith and Josh Brunvoll, his brother.

“I like the coaches there, I feel they are genuine and know their stuff,” said Brunvoll. “They gave me a really good opportunity and I’m thankful for that.”

As a sophomore, Brunvoll earned First Team All-Old Line Baseball Conference honors, and a spot on the State All-Tournament Team. ranked him as the #6 left-handed sophomore pitcher in their database. 

Before his junior season, The Gazette Newspapers listed Brunvoll on their “Private School Players To Watch” list. 

He lived up to the billing as he helped lead Avalon to the OLBC Championship over arch rival The Heights. He won six games and posted a 2.08 earned run average to earn Second Team All-OLBC honors.

Later, for his summer showcase team, Dig In Baseball, Brunvoll earned a spot in the US Baseball All-Star game. He pitched a scoreless inning with two strikeouts in the nationally televised game played in Richmond, Va.

A torn labrum shelved the Gaithersburg, Md. native for a year, but he pitched this spring for The Avalon School. 

Brunvoll will graduate ranked fourth in school history for innings pitched, wins, and strikeouts.

Nyack finished 2014 with their best season in recent years and earned a spot in the CACC tournament.

At Nyack, Brunvoll will major in Accounting.
