Seven Named All-ODAC

Seven Named All-ODAC

LYNCHBURG, Va. - Shenandoah University had seven student-athletes earn All-ODAC honors in baseball selections announced Thursday during the opening game of the league tournament.

Senior Phil Morse and junior Abel Arocho highlight the selections with first team accolades at relief pitcher and in the outfield, respectively.

Morse' younger brother, Colin Morse, and senior Michael Scimanico grab the second team All-ODAC spots at pitcher with junior Jake Loew earning the second team position at designated hitter.

Senior Joe Coleman and freshman Tristan Baker round out the honorees with third team selections. Coleman was picked in the outfield and Baker at second base.

The honor is the third for Scimanico in his four seasons with the rest being selected for the first time in their careers.

Arocho is hitting a team-leading .421 with 61 hits in 145 at-bats and his 18 bases on balls is second only to Coleman's 31.

Phil Morse is 3-0 with eight saves and a 0.40 ERA and 24 strikeouts in 22 1/3 innings pitched. He is one save away from tying the school record for saves in a season.

Colin Morse, the Hornets No. 3 starter, is 5-0 with a 1.73 ERA and 50 strikeouts in 57 1/3 innings pitched. He has one complete game this season, a 4-1 victory over Washington and Lee on April 5.

Scimanico, who earned third team All-ODAC honors in 2013 and second team in 2014, is 6-1 this year with a 1.97 ERA and 83 strikeouts in 64.0 innings pitched.

With his next strikeout, Scimanico will break the season strikeout record he currently co-holds with Greg Van Sickler '11.

Loew, the current ODAC Player of the Week, leads SU in doubles, triples, home runs and runs batted in as well as slugging percentage. He has hit six home runs in his last 12 games.

Coleman, the squad's centerfielder, has drawn the team-leading 31 walks while hitting .329 with 46 hits in 140 at-bats. He also has 15 RBI in addition to a team-leading 11 stolen bases.

Baker, who with Coleman are the only two players to start all 38 games this year, is hitting .340 with 52 hits in 153 at-bats. The Williamsport, Maryland native is the first freshman baseball player to earn All-ODAC honors for the Hornets.

In four seasons of ODAC baseball, SU has 23 All-league selections with the seven this season matching the seven picked last year. In 2014, SU had six players plus Kevin Anderson as Coach of the Year. Two players, Scimanico and Corbin Lucas '15, were picked in 2013.
