GLENS FALLS, N.Y. – The Glens Falls Dragons have completed their coaching staff for the upcoming 2017 Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) season, a group which will be led by first-year bench boss Cameron Curler.

Curler, currently an assistant coach at the College of St. Joseph in Rutland, Vt., will be joined by Castleton University Assistant Coach George Buteau, Bethany College (W.Va.) Pitching Coach Austin Sleek, and Scott Iselhart, President of the South Florida Winter League, who will serve as a volunteer assistant.

A native of Vergennes, Vt., Curler has been on the College of St. Joseph staff since 2014, and he’s no stranger to the friendly confines of East Field. He has helped the Fighting Saints win back-to-back United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) National Championships at the Small College World Series, held at East Field in both 2016 and 2017. His squad needed two victories over The Apprentice School on May 18 to secure this year’s title from the elimination bracket and came up with wins of 11-4 and 6-1. The Fighting Saints had seven players honored as USCAA All-Americans during the past two title seasons.

In his playing days, Curler suited up for the Spartans of Castleton University. He was the team’s starting shortstop in his junior and senior seasons, batting a combined .286 in those two years. In his junior campaign in 2012, he played a crucial role in Castleton’s North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) Championship and deep run in the NCAA New York Regional. Although his Spartans fell short in the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) title game the following season, Curler was named to the NAC All-Tournament Team and was crowned the team’s MVP.

Buteau, a 2015 graduate of St. Michael’s College, is in his first season as an assistant coach at Castleton. He ranks among the Purple Knights’ all-time leaders in hits (125), doubles (24), home runs (8), and RBIs (66). Buteau aided in the Spartans’ run to the 2017 NAC Championship and a berth in the New York Regional with a 34-10 overall record.

Sleek is in his first season as the pitching coach at Bethany following a successful career at Seton Hill University, a Division II institution in Greensburg, Pa. Out of the Griffins’ bullpen, he fanned 50 in 65.1 career innings with five victories and four saves. Sleek’s work with Bison closer Neil Woods and starter Nick Gross helped the duo garner All-Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) accolades this spring.
