Last night, Whitmore Lake Senior Ryan Kadoguchi signed his letter of intent to attend Cleary University and play baseball at the collegiate level. Ryan Kadoguchi was joined by family as he took this momentous step in his life.
In his junior season playing baseball at Whitmore Lake, Ryan played shortstop and pitcher. On the mound, Ryan Kadoguchi threw 26 strikeouts in 27 innings pitched. He gave up only 11 earned runs, giving him a 2.852 ERA. From the plate, Kadoguchi had a .304 batting average, with a season total of 31 hits, 27 of those being RBIs. His 15 walks combined with 31 hits gave him an on base percentage of .392.
Ryan Kadoguchi will be the third Whitmore Lake athlete to commit to play sports at the collegiate level this year. Audrey Lama has committed to Olivet to play Volleyball and Evan Ward has signed at Concordia University of Ann Arbor to play lacrosse. These three commitments mark the most athletes to sign letters of intent to play sports at the collegiate level from one class in quite some time for Whitmore Lake High School. This should be taken as a sign of better things to come from Whitmore Lake Athletics as many of our sports teams are on the rise and producing impressive athletes.
