Orange Athlete Receives Prestigious Award

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

Middletown, NY - Orange baseball player Jonathon Lindau was recently named as a recipient of the prestigious Chancellor's Scholar-Athlete Award. Lindau was an outstanding student and catcher in his time at Orange. Jonathon was an All-Region player who was also the Defensive Player of the Year in Region 15. The Chancellor's Award for Student Excellence, honors State University of New York students who have best demonstrated and been recognized for their integration of academic excellence with other aspects of their lives, which may include leadership, campus involvement, athletics, career achievement, community service or creative and performing arts. After Orange, Jon transferred to Castleton State where he is a key member of their championship baseball team.


All Conference and All Region Honors for Colt Baseball Players

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

The baseball season has ended and with it comes well deserved recognition from the Mid Hudson Conference and Region XV for several Orange players. Named to the Mid Hudson Conference first team were Jonathon Lindau and Mike Bartolone. Region XV honors went to second team selections Bartolone, Kyle O'Brien, and James Daidone. Jonathon Lindau was named to the Gold Glove Team as a catcher and also received a Region XV Sportsmanship Award.

Jonathon Lindau was the team's defensive stopper behind the plate this year. As catcher he excelled at handling the pitching staff and helping with their pitch selection. Lindau also has a canon for an arm. The 13 base runners who tried and failed can attest to how tough it was to steal on him this season. At the plate Lindau batted over .300 and led the team in home runs, extra base hits, and RBI. Johnathon will be attending school and playing at Castleton St. next year.

After playing third base the previous year, Mike Bartolone found his groove in the outfield for the Colts this season. "Bart" recorded 59 putouts this year and assisted on two double plays. At bat was where Mike really shined this year. He led the team in batting average, hitting a robust .402. He also led the team in doubles and triples. His 49 hits were 9 more than any other Colt had this year. Bartolone is going to continue his education at East Carolina University in the Fall and will try to walk on with the Pirates.

James Daidone was limited a bit this year by a wrist injury. He was still able to bat for the Colts and his success there landed him on the All Region team as a designated hitter. Daidone, who will be attending the University of Buffalo to major in engineering in the Fall, batted close to .300 and was tied for second on the team in home runs.

The lone freshman on the team, Kyle O'Brien, played second base for Orange. Kyle anchored the middle of the infield and his bat became explosive as he learned to adjust to the speed of the college game. Kyle was second on the team with a .348 batting average and second in hits. Kyle will be a key returner for the Colts next year.

Congratulations to all of these well-deserved recipients! All of them exemplify everything a student/athlete should represent. They all have great character and played the game the right way.
