YORK, Pa. – The Capital Athletic Conference announced its Baseball All-Conference accolades on Tuesday afternoon, and the Marymount (Va.) University baseball team was represented by two pitchers again this year, seeing junior starter Collin Bazemore and sophomore reliever Conner Hall earn second-team honors.
Bazemore makes his second appearance on the All-CAC team, earning a first-team spot in his sophomore season. The junior righty tossed the most innings on the team this year with 57.1, making 10 starts on the hill, sixth most in the league. In his 10 starts, he registered the sixth most wins in the CAC with five, including his first collegiate complete game in a 7-3 home victory back on March 22. He recorded a career-best 66 strikeouts this season, while maintaining a 5.18 earned-run average.
Hall, earning his first collegiate postseason accolade, made his way on as a reliever and infielder. A shortstop for a bulk of his time on the field, the sophomore was involved in 17 of the team's 25 double plays this year, while assisting on 124 putouts. At bat, Hall had a breakout season with a .300 batting average that included the second-most RBI on the team with 28. Off 39 hits, he registered 26 runs, 10 doubles and three home runs. The numbers continue to impress, as Hall was the Saints' closer on the mound, leading the CAC with six saves. Through 12 appearances on the mound, he came across on six saves while taking the win on the hill in four other games in 18.2 innings pitches. With a 2.41 ERA, Hall struck out 19 batters while giving up just five earned runs.
The Saints concluded their fourth campaign in program history with a 20-21 overall record, 9-9 in CAC play, and made a trip to their third-consecutive conference tournament.
