Kolowich Will Hit For Georgia State
Blessed Trinity Catholic High School senior, Jonathan Kolowich, has signed a letter of intent to play baseball at Georgia State University, in Atlanta, Georgia, this fall.
Jonathan, an Acworth resident, joined the Titans baseball team his junior year as a pitcher and centerfielder and was an integral part in the school’s state championship in 2006.
According to BT head baseball coach, Andy Harlin, Jonathan, an All-County his junior year who won a Georgia Dugout Club Player of the Week Award, as well as being named the 2006 Offensive Player of the Year for Blessed Trinity, will always be remembered for his famous throw in last year’s championship game against Columbus. “With the tying run on 3rd, Jonathan caught a fly ball in right field and threw to catcher Jameson Contratto to cut down the run, resulting in a double play which ended the inning. He also scored the winning run!”
“I am very proud of Jonathan and very happy for his family. For his dad to get to see his son finish up a great high school career from the front row is special,” said Coach Harlin, referring to BT Asst. Coach Brad Kolowich. “He is a top-shelf kid, and without question a Division 1 baseball player. The night he signed I called him to congratulate him, and said ‘you will be playing against Georgia and Georgia Tech next year big guy, that’s pretty exciting.’ He said, ‘yes sir, but I can’t wait for our game tomorrow night.’ That’s a pretty good answer! He just signs to play D1 baseball and he is thinking about his high school team, gotta love that.”
