BRIGHTON – Chayse Magnetti of Brighton High School signed a letter of intent to continue his baseball career with McCook Community College in Nebraska.
A transfer his junior year from Mountain Range High School, Magnetti lettered in baseball both years he was a member of the Bulldog baseball team. This past season, Magnetti batted .391 with two home runs and 12 runs batted in.
Although there were other schools in Kansas and Texas looking at Magnetti, he felt that McCook was the best fit for him.
“I played for a club team this past fall, and practiced and played with them,” Magnetti said. “The coaching staff saw me, and it was pretty much a done deal from then.”
It also makes sense, because McCook is not very far (about a four-hour drive). So he can keep a somewhat close distance from his family and his girlfriend, who will be attending the University of Northern Colorado this fall.
Magnetti has been playing baseball since T-ball and competitively since the age of 10. His hard work has really paid off. Former Brighton head coach Bill Bainbridge has taken note of his hard work over the last two seasons and appreciates the work he has put in.
“Chayse deserves a chance to prove himself at the next level,” Bainbridge said through an e-mail statement. “He is a hard working team player. I wish him the best of luck at McCook.”
McCook Community College enjoyed one of the best baseball campaigns in the history of the sport at the two-year school. The Indians posted a 29-28 record (29-14 after its first 14 games). The team loses eight sophomores on that squad.
Magnetti graduated with a 3.714 grade-point average and plans to do general studies at MCC before planning to major in psychology or pharmacology.
