WHITE RIVER JUNCTION — The Upper Valley Nighthawks have hired Justin Devoid as head coach for the New England Collegiate Baseball League season.

Devoid assumed the role originally assigned to Bryant Bowen, the ex-Nighthawk catcher who stepped down from the role in early May because of the NECBL’s rule that all players and coaches must get the COVID-19 vaccine to participate this year.

Devoid graduated from Hartford High in 2013 and from Colby-Sawyer College in 2017. He batted .310 over four seasons with the Chargers baseball program and also joined the Nighthawks for the final six games of their inaugural campaign in 2016.

He worked as an athletic trainer at Hartford High before taking an assistant baseball coach position at St. Lawrence University in New York last year. He’s no stranger to Maxfield Sports Complex, either, having coached the White River Junction entry in the independent Vermont Summer Baseball League that served as a fill-in for the pandemic-cancelled Vermont American Legion season last year.

The Nighthawks open the 2021 schedule at defending NECBL champion Keene on Friday.
