BURLINGTON, Vt.  Sophomore Justin Milo (Eden Prairie, Minn.) has announced his decision to transfer to the University of Vermont from Cornell and will play baseball and mens hockey for the Catamounts. Milo (pronounced MY-low) will have three seasons of eligibility remaining for baseball beginning with the 2008 season. He also will have three years of eligibility remaining for hockey starting with 2008-09 season after sitting out the 2007-08 season per NCAA rules.

A lefty-hitting corner infielder, Milo was named to the Collegiate Baseball Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American Team last season at Cornell and was a unanimous section to the All-Ivy League First Team. He hit .426 with 12 runs batted in and a team-best 10 doubles despite playing in just 19 games following the end of hockey season. He had a .754 slugging percentage as 19 of 26 hits went for extra bases while hitting safely in 15 of his 19 games. In 15 Ivy League contests, Milo hit .431 with two homers and 11 RBI.

Milo is a graduate of Edina High School where he was a Gopher Conference All-Star in baseball. In the summer of 2004, he was named the Minnesota American Legion State Tournament Most Valuable Player  an award formerly won by major league stars Dave Winfield and Terry Steinbach.

Our University community and athletic department are excited to have another exceptional dual sport athlete with such proven success, Vermont baseball head coach Bill Currier said. We feel his offensive numbers last year in the Ivy League will find him opportunity in our lineup quickly as an offensive catalyst. Balancing two Division I sports and succeeding in the classroom as Justin has done so far in college shows his discipline and commitment to his teammates in both sports.

Milo also was a member of the Cornell mens hockey team that finished 14-13-4 last season. The 5-foot-8, 180-pound forward played in 24 games for the Big Red and scored three goals and one assist for four points. He recorded the game-winning goal in the third period of Cornells 2-1 win over Colgate on January 25.

Prior to attending Cornell, Milo played in the United States Hockey League with the Lincoln Stars and Indiana Ice in 2005-06. That season he scored 26 goals and 21 assists for 47 points in 64 games. During the 2004-05 season he scored 27 goals and 17 assists for 44 points in 59 games with Sioux City in the USHL.

The University of Vermont is fortunate to have a student-athlete, who excels in hockey, baseball and academics, join our community here in Burlington, Vermont mens hockey head coach Kevin Sneddon said. Justin has a fresh start to his college career and we look forward to working with him. I know Justin is anxious to meet his new teammates and begin the process of blending into his new environment.
