Breakfast with a Buc: Week 3

BY ELLA BROCKWAY, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF ’17

Welcome back to The Buccaneer’s sports column, “Breakfast with a Buc.” Each week, over a bagel breakfast, we’ll be chatting with an RBR student-athlete who is committed to play a sport at the college level.

We sat down with RBR baseball player Jack Mangold, who hit .275 and had five doubles on the season for the Bucs last spring.

Sport in College: Baseball

Position: SS

College: Colby College (Waterville, ME)

What to follow*: @themules

Bagel Order: Plain bagel with butter

EB: Why Colby?

JM: It was the best academic school that I was looking at because I wanted one of the top liberal arts schools in the country. When I did my overnight, I saw how great the facilities were and it’s a really nice campus that I got a feel for. The coaches were really nice and all the players seemed like they really like it.

EB: What has RBR baseball taught you?

JM: How to play as a team and be less selfish. (Head coach Nick) Tucker’s big about that, playing as a team and doing whatever it takes for the team instead of just trying to do it by yourself.

EB: What’s your favorite RBR baseball memory?

JM: Probably when we hit the walk-off against Monmouth in the Strike Out Autism Challenge (in 2015).
