Nick Cardwell.jpg

Looking to stretch out his baseball career, Columbia Roughneck alum, Nick Cardwell will head to Beeville to play for Coastal Bend College. Front row, from left, father Ronald Cardwell, Nick and mother Shelena Cardwell; back row, Columbia head baseball coach Earnest Pena and assistant coach Jacob Harton.

Columbia’s Nick Cardwell knew he wanted to keep playing baseball, and he found that opportunity at Coastal Bend College in Beeville, deciding to stay a few hours from home instead of following interest from schools as far off as Michigan.

Predominantly a catcher for the Roughnecks for the past four seasons, he also got the taste of second and third base.
