After leading the team in hitting this season, Centre College catcher Cameron Fishman was named to the all-Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference baseball first team.
Fishman, a senior who was named all-SCAC¿honorable mention as a freshman in 2009, led the Colonels with a .382 batting average, the highest by a Centre player since the 2009 season, when Jeffrey Williams hit .404. He also ranked second on the team in RBIs (26) and on-base percentage (.453) in 102 at-bats over 31 games.
Four other Colonels received honorable mention on this year’s team: junior shortstop Aaron Ammann (.328, 8 doubles, 21 runs), sophomore outfielder Kyle Cook (.333, 4 home runs, 27 RBIs), sophomore third baseman Charlie Holland (.323, 16 RBIs, 20 runs) and sophomore pitcher Kyle Neu (4-4, 1 save, 4.31 earned-run average, 44 strikeouts, 56.3 innings, three complete games).
This is the eighth consecutive season the Colonels (14-24, 4-10 SCAC) have placed at least four players on the all-conference team, and the sixth time with at least five selections.
Meg Hawthorne of Centre was named the SCAC women’s lacrosse offensive player of the week after posting four goals and one assist in a win over Colorado College last weekend that gave the Colonels (13-4, 4-1 SCAC) a share of first place in the league standings.
Entering this weekend’s SCAC tournament, Hawthorne led the SCAC in points with 74 and led Centre in goals with 53.
