Shiloh Christian’s Canaan Fagerland has inked his commitment to play baseball for the Concordia Cobbers next year.
Fagerland is coming off an impressive junior baseball season; during which, he batted .449 and had a staggering .821 slugging percentage. He was also impressive on the mound, striking out 38 batters in 39 innings pitched, while carrying a 1.61 ERA.
Fagerland will join a Concordia program that is led by Chris Coste. The Fargo baseball legend has helped steer the Cobbers to an 86-65 record during his tenure.
With Fagerland, the Cobbers add one of the top multi-sport athletes in the North Dakota.
The senior standout recently wrapped up a highly decorated prep football career for the Skyhawks. Fagerland amassed over 6,000 yards from scrimmage and 77 touchdowns during his career. He was named to the North Dakota All-State team (first team) this fall.
Fagerland also excels in the classroom. He plans to study pre-med and felt Concordia ticked off all of the boxes, “It ultimately came down to what I felt was the best fit for me”, said Fagerland. “I can get a great pre-med education and still be able to play baseball at a competitive, high-level.”
