Plymouth Whitemarsh High School’s Jesse Jaconski has signed a letter of intent to play baseball at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. The third baseman will join his brother who also plays baseball for the Tarheels.
Jaconski batted .430 in his junior year and made 1st Team Third Base in his junior year and 3rd Team First Base in his freshman year. He is also the recipient of the Charlie Foster Award. He has been a part of the team’s past two Suburban One League championships as well.
His favorite thing about playing baseball is the bond he has with his teammates. He believes the experience he’s gained at PW will be beneficial at the collegiate level.
“The competition is helping me to take this next step,” he said.
Jesse is a Distinguished Honor Roll student in addition to his athletic accomplishments.
