Former CR pitcher Ellena signs with Valley City State

EUREKA- Another former College of the Redwoods pitcher is moving on to a four-year school.

On Wednesday afternoon, Ryan Ellena signed his letter of intent with Valley City State.

The sophomore is wasting no time. Ellena will leave Thursday for Valley City, North Dakota. He might want to bring some extra warm clothing. The temperature there on Wednesday was -4 with snow expected later in the week.

Ellena went 3-1 with a 3.51 ERA last season with the Corsairs.

Ellena also pitched for the B52’s and told us he’s excited for the new opportunity.
