Exeter's Keaveney named NH Gatorade Baseball Player of the Year

EXETER – Cam Keaveney had a great final winter and spring sports season as a student-athlete at Exeter High School.

Three months after being named New Hampshire Division I High School Boys Hockey Player of the Year, Keaveney was named Gatorade's New Hampshire Baseball Player of the Year.

A two-time Division I All-State first-team selection, Keaveney is the first Exeter High School player to win both of those awards.

“He definitely shines on the mound,” said Exeter High School baseball coach Bruce Joyce. “He can absolutely dominate when he's on form, which is often. He had a really strong senior year and has performed well in his three-year college career.”

Keaveney, who will continue his baseball career next year at Division I Northeastern University, pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowed two runs on two hits, had three walks and 11 strikeouts, and led Exeter to a Division I first-round victory over Spaulding last Friday. Exeter then beat Winnacunnet in the quarterfinals on Saturday.

Keaveney posted a 4-0 record on the mound with a 1.17 ERA during the regular season. He allowed 16 hits, struck out 49 and held opponents to a .155 batting average.

Keaveney joins the Coast's list of Gatorade New Hampshire Baseball Players of the Year, which also includes Joe Allen (2022) and Cam MacDonald (2021) of Winnacunnet.

Exeter will play No. 3 Londonderry in the Division I semifinals on Wednesday at Holman Stadium in Nashua.
