BELLEVUE, Neb. -- Bellevue University baseball coach Duane Monlux announced today the signing of Graham Cahill (Omaha, Neb./Northeastern JC/Omaha Westside HS) to a National Letter of Intent to continue his baseball and academic careers at Bellevue beginning in the fall.

Cahill comes to Bellevue from Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, Colo. In his two seasons with the Plainsmen Cahill, a 5-10, 195-pound right-hander appeared in 23 games. He posted a 6-8 record to accompany a 5.19 ERA in 128.1 innings of work. He struck out 66 batters and issued 45 walks in his career.

This past season Cahill was an innings-eater for NJC, working five innings in 10 of 12 appearances and lasting at least six innings on seven occasions.

Coach Monlux on Cahill:

"We are excited to have signed an experienced pitcher like Graham. He has been a regular in the rotation at NJC for the past two seasons. He has gained a ton of valuable, college game experience, pitching in almost 130 innings over two seasons. Pitching has been a real need for us this off-season. We feel that Graham has a chance to come in and do some real positive things for Bellevue University."

Cahill joins previously announced signees Hunter Jury (C; Davis, Calif.), Colton Walker (RHP; Goldendale, Wash.), Anthony Alvarado (LHP; Wapato, Wash.), Cody Banks (3B; Duvall, Wash.), Derek Browne (RHP; Maple Valley, Wash.), Wataru Kazama (SS/2B; Tokyo, Japan), Jarrett Poh (LHP; Varina, Va.), Daniel Teasley (OF; Rio Dell, Calif.), Jesus Jimenez (IF; South San Francisco, Calif.), and Tommy Hansen (OF; Genoa, Ill.) in the Bruins 2018 recruiting class.

Bellevue wrapped up the 2018 season with a 38-23 overall record (17-5 NSAA) and won their second North Star Tournament in the last three seasons. The Bruins earned their eighth-straight NAIA Opening Round bid and 21st NAIA National Tournament Appearance in the program's storied history.
