Nunez Community College baseball player, Dominic Curole, is the first in the team’s short history to earn the national honor of Second Team All-Academic from the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). Dominic was named to the All-Academic team for the 2017-18 academic year due to his performance both on and off the field.
