Wethersfield High School seniors Mathew Fletcher and Brendan Zaleski both announced that they have committed to continue to play baseball together at Lasell University in Newton, Massachusetts.
Fletcher stated, “I’m excited to say I will be continuing my baseball career at Lasell University! Go Lasers!”
During the passed four years, Fletcher was a three-year varsity player, serving as a captain this spring for the Eagles. He was named to the CCC all-conference team, CCC all-academic team, and selected to participate in the CHSCA senior all-star game following the season. In addition to baseball, Fletcher is also a member of the Leadership Club at WHS. He’s playing with the Connecticut Capitals this summer and at Lasell, the lefty will pitch for the Lasers as he studies Business Management.
Zaleski stated, “Proud to announce my verbal commitment to Lasell University to continue my academic and baseball career. Go Lasers!”
The hard-throwing righty also served as a captain this past season, earning his third varsity letter. Zaleski earned CCC all-academic honors in both 2019 and in 2021. At WHS, he also played soccer and was a member of the Interact Club, Geography Club, and Leadership Club. Last year as a junior, he was inducted into both the National Honor Society and the Social Studies National Honor Society. A two-year member of the CT Capitals, Zaleski will pitch for the Lasers next year while studying marketing.
