Newark, N.Y.  The Newark Pilots continue to build their roster for the 2016 Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) season with the addition of Niagara University Purple Eagles Greg Cullen and Julian Gallup.

Both Cullen and Gallup are in the midst of breakout seasons for a rising Niagara program, a member of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC).

Cullen has found a home as a table setter, batting second in the lineup for the Purple Eagles. In his freshman season, he’s batting .276 with a .344 on-base percentage. The shortstop has accumulated 32 hits, eight doubles, 17 runs scored, and 10 RBIs. He has also displayed tremendous patience at the plate by working out 13 walks. The 5-foot-10, 160-pound rookie began his collegiate career with an eight-game on-base streak, which included a season-long six-game hit streak. Cullen has a trio of three-hit outings, most recently doing so in a 4-3 victory over St. Bonaventure. In that game on March 22, he finished 3-for-5 with the game-winning RBI in the ninth.

Originally from nearby Penfield, N.Y., Cullen was a two-sport athlete at McQuaid Jesuit High School in Rochester, N.Y., where he lettered in both baseball and basketball. He guided the Knights to a Section V Class AA championship in 2015, batting .472 with a .639 on-base percentage. He collected 34 hits, 32 runs, and flashed his wheels by swiping 18 bags as a senior. Cullen capped off his high school career by being named to the All-Greater Rochester and All-New York State First Teams.

Julian Gallup

The fleet-footed Gallup will a dimension of power and speed to the Newark lineup this summer. The second-year outfielder has started all 28 games for the Purple Eagles, ranking third among starters with a .326 batting average. Among his 29 hits are a team-leading three home runs. He’s also 7-for-8 in stolen bases. Perhaps Gallup’s best outing of the season came in the series with MAAC opponent Saint Peter’s College. In the first of a three-game set, the 6-foot-1 outfielder went 2-for-4 with a double and a three-run homer, registering season highs with five RBIs and four runs scored. As a freshman, Gallup made 38 appearances, recording a .324 on-base percentage with 15 walks, 15 runs scored, and eight hits.

A two-time All-New York State selection, Gallup was a tremendously gifted three-sport athlete at Amsterdam High School. His high school baseball coach was Brian Spagnola, the president and general manager of the Amsterdam Mohawks. Under Spagnola's tutelage, Gallup hit at a combined .381 clip with 43 runs and 30 RBIs in his junior and senior campaigns. Additionally, he swiped a total of 35 bases in his final two prep seasons. That speed on the basepath translated well to the track, where Gallup won a state title in the 4x400-meter relay as a senior, the same year he quarterbacked the Rugged Rams football team.

The Newark Pilots open the 2016 PGCBL season on the road on Wednesday, June 1, against the Jamestown Jammers. The home opener at historic Colburn Park is scheduled for Friday, June 3, at 7:05 p.m. against the Geneva Red Wings. For more information and to purchase season tickets, please contact team president Leslie Ohmann at 315-576-6710 or newarkpilots@gmail.com.

Wayne County Council for the Arts is pleased to present the 2016 Wayne County Middle School Art Exhibit from March 31st through the April 23rd. This exhibit highlights the artistic talent of some of our younger artists in Wayne County. (The attached photo is a piece of art done by Emma Acobe in colored pencil - Emma is from the T. C. Armstrong Middle School – 6th grade)

In the Chris Fayad Members Gallery, there will be an exhibit by WILL BOYDELL and JESSICA KANALEY.

WILL BOYDELL was born in Paterson, New Jersey because he wanted to be near his mother. At an early age, he was fast-tracked into the music curriculum, having been found to be unsuited for anything else. He graduated as a trumpet major with a B. A. in music. Will was immediately drafted into the U. S. Army and served three years in the West Point Band.

Following his time in the service, Will returned to his calling as a classical musician. He performed with many of the best orchestras in New York City and New Jersey, under the leadership of fine conductor/composers including Leonard Bernstein, Leopold Stokowski, Oscar Shumsky, Aaron Copeland and Alan Hovhaness.

Will later played bass guitar and sang as a member of the Last Chance Band and spent three years as a PGA apprentice working as a golf pro. Will moved to Huron, New York and built a log home where he now resides with his wife Carol Stevens and his hound, Maverick (neither of whom listen to a word he says). He decided to study drawing in 2006 after doing some artwork for his wife’s third grade class.

Will found that he enjoyed it and wanted to see what else he could do with it. In 2008, two of his drawings were selected to be show in the Professional Wildlife Art Exhibit at the New York State Fair. This past year his drawing of “The Odd Couple” won first place at the Sterling Art Festival.

Will has taught art for the North Rose-Wolcott school district as part of both their adult continuing education program and the after-school elementary Advantage program. He also teaches art as part of the adult continuing education program and at the wonderful public library in Williamson and at the Fair Haven Hardware Café. Will has been happy to be associated with the Humane Society of Wayne County, contributing art to help their necessary and fine work (if you have room in your home and heart, please seek out their fine animals and able and courteous staff). Will is an artist member of the Wayne County Council for the Arts as well as an associate artist with the South Shore Artisans in Fair Haven.

JESSICA KANALEY is a ceramic artist who celebrates her American roots with pottery inspired by the garden. She was raised in Rochester, New York where she graduated with a bachelors of science from Nazareth College. After working in special education she completed an apprenticeship at the Rochester Folk Art Guild and founded the business, Old Soul Clay. Jessica is currently participating in residencies and seeking adventure through her travels. You may find more of her work by checking on her website: www.oldsoulclay.com

Plan to join us at the Opening Reception to be held on Sunday, April 10th, from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. Parents, friends and public are welcome. W

ayne Art Gallery hours are Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 12:00 to 3:00 pm and by appointment. Admission is free. Visit these exciting exhibits and stop by our great Gallery Gift Store. Gift certificates are available for classes and gift store items. Wayne County Council for the Arts is located at 108 W. Miller Street, Newark.
