Resorters’ Farquhar Finds New Home at Michigan State
TRAVERSE CITY – As one door closed on Trent Farquhar’s baseball career, another opened.
A Highland, Mich. native and second baseman with the Great Lakes Resorters, Farquhar’s freshman campaign as a member of Bowling Green’s baseball team came to a screeching halt on March 10 as the coronavirus pandemic forced the cancellation of college spring sports.
Two months later on May 15, Bowling Green announced that it was eliminating its baseball program effective immediately as part of budget cuts. While the university later reinstated the program in June following fundraising efforts that have given the program at least another three years, Farquhar found a new home at Michigan State.
“It was a very chaotic process. It came at probably the worst time during this coronavirus,” Farquhar said. “A little shaken up from the season being over and then getting the call that our team was canceled, wasn’t the best news but kind of had to persevere through it and stay level headed and get on to the next place and thankfully Michigan State is my next place. This is just a blessing just going from March 10 being the last game up to July it’s just awesome being back out here especially at this beautiful stadium, beautiful place. No other place I’d rather be right now.”
Farquhar will start his sophomore year at MSU in the fall.
