Meadows on deck for Olney Central

Greensburg — Greensburg senior Andy Meadows has joined a growing list of Pirate baseball players ready to play at the next level.

Meadows made it official last Wednesday when he signed his letter of intent to play for Olney Central College, a two-year college and member of Illinois Eastern Community Colleges.

He and four other recent signees, Macy Holdsworth, Tyler Burcham, Austin Schultz and Ethan Bailey, played crucial roles in the Greensburg program’s success.

“They’ve all done a very good job,” said Meadows. “I’m just happy to be a part of the tradition.”

Meadows, who was a sophomore during the Pirates’ Semi-State appearance, was recruited as a centerfielder and will compete with two others for the position.

Meadows will have a proven coach in Dennis Conley to see him flourish. Conley, in his 34th year coaching, has won 40 or more games in 10 of the past 12 seasons.

“I can’t say enough about Coach Conley,” said Meadows. “That was a big reason I chose Olney.”

Meadows credited his travel coach, Jason Clymore, and Mitch Sefton, Meadows’ mentor since he was 9. Both Clymore and Sefton have been key to helping him to the point where is now.

Clymore coached the Edgewood Bulldogs, then the Indiana Irish. Meadows was a hitting student under Clymore, who ran Innercircle Baseball for 11- to 14-year-olds.

Sefton, Meadows’ mentor, worked with Meadows one-on-one with fundamentals and hitting.

Meadows is already acquainted with his college roommate, Chase Allen, who played infield on the state-champion Vincennes Rivet team. They were teammates with Indiana Prospects and US Athletics, when they met at the age of 14.

According to Meadows, the time he spends as a Blue Knight will be valuable to fine-tuning his skills and moving on to a bigger college.

“It’s a good opportunity to develop and get better,” he said.
