Congrats to the SU Baseball Hornets on another outstanding season!

Back to back World Series appearances cannot be disputed.  The diamond Hornets have won 76 of the last 96 games over the last two years for another (38-10) season.

A program best-ever 12 players earned All-USA South, USA South All-Tournament or Fayetteville Regional All-Tournament honors with Scott Van Dusseldorp and Greg Van Sickler being named USA South Conference Player and Pitcher of the Year, respectively.

Van Sickler, who led the team in wins and finish second in batting average for the second consecutive year, added ABCA South Region Player of the Year and first team All-America honors to his resume as well.

Kevin Brashears joined Van Sickler as a first team All-America. Both men were named first team by and the American Baseball Coaches Association and Van Sickler capped his outstanding season off by being named ESPN The Magazine third team Academic All-America.

This is the first time in school history that a student-athlete earned both academic and athletic All-America honors in the same season.

The individual honors, while impressive, are just the 'tip of the iceberg' of the team's success.
Off the field, 17 players earned USA South All-Academic team honors (at least a 3.0 GPA in both semesters) with Brashears, Van Sickler and Jake Yocum all earning Academic All-District III accolades.
