MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The Rice trio of Cole St.Clair, Adam Zornes and Ryan Berry were named to the All-South Central Region team by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA), the organization announced Thursday from its headquarters in Murfreesboro, Tenn.
This season St.Clair, a senior left-hander from Santa Ana, Calif., posted a 10-2 record with five saves and a 2.61 ERA. He has struck out 63 batters in 58.2 innings of work and he's held 210 hitters to a composite .224 batting average.
Berry (8-4, 3.31 ERA) is a right-handed sophomore hurler from Humble, Tex., who was earlier named a first team All-Conference USA selection by the league's head coaches. He leads the Owls' impressive pitching staff in strikeouts (85), innings (100.2) and games started (16).
Zornes was one of the stars of the Owls' NCAA Super Regional-clinching win over Texas A&M. The junior catcher from nearby St. Thomas High School is hitting .308 for the year and leads the team with 12 home runs. His two-run blast in the bottom of the eighth inning last Sunday lifted the Owls to a 6-5 win over the Aggies and helped Rice secure a third-straight trip to the College World Series.
The ABCA's all-region honorees are eligible to earn national All-America honors from the organization later this month. The ABCA is a non-profit organization represented by more than 5,000 members from all 50 states.
The 2008 College World Series begins this weekend in Omaha, Neb. Rice's first game is set for Sunday, June 15, against Fresno State at 1 pm. The game will be televised live across the nation on ESPN-HD.
