KCAC fetes two for baseball

Tabor College standouts Chris Brown and Alfred Wilson have been named first team all-KCAC baseball selections by the conference?s coaches.

Brown, a senior catcher from Grass Valley, Calif., was among the conference leaders in hits, home runs and RBI the entire season.

Wilson, a senior outfielder from New Orleans, La., was among conference leaders in hits and runs, setting the school record for doubles in a season (17), which ranked third overall in the conference.

?I am proud of the accomplishments of these two men, they both played a major role for this team and their production will be missed,? coach Chad Newhard said.

Brown batted .338 for the year and led the Bluejays in RBIs and home runs. His 41 RBIs and his seven home runs ranked fifth and ninth, respectively, in the conference.

Wilson batted .390 for the year, driving in 39 runs for the Bluejays this season. His 62 hits and 44 runs scored were tops among Bluejays batters and ranked fifth in the conference in both categories.

In Newhard?s first year as the Bluejays coach, Tabor placed seventh in the KCAC with a conference record of 7-17 (18-31 overall).
