MASON, Ohio -- For the fourth consecutive season the Covenant baseball team has a player earn NCCAA All-American honors. Sophomore starting pitcher Micah Mabe was recognized for his outstanding season by being voted to the NCCAA All-American 2nd Team on Tuesday night at the NCCAA World Series banquet.
James Rollins was a 1st Team All-American last season and Taylor Oldham earned back-to-back 1st Team All-American honors in 2010 and 2011 for the Scots.
From Cumming, Ga., Mabe went 7-2 with a 2.25 ERA during the season, including a start in the Mid-East Region tournament. The left-hander compiled three complete-games in 11 starts while throwing a team-high 68 innings. Mabe struck out 66 and walked just 14 while allowing opponents to hit a lowly .207 against him.
Mabe set a modern Covenant single game record with 13 strikeouts in a nine inning complete-game performance against LaGrange on April 19. Covenant rallied in the ninth inning in that game to claim a 4-3 win.
Covenant opens NCCAA World Series play on Wednesday when they face third-seeded Arizona Christian at 4 p.m.
