LAKELAND, FL -- Catawba placed three players on the 2008 Daktronics NCAA II All-South Region Baseball Team.  Outfielders David Thomas (Winston-Salem, NC/Ledford HS) and Jerry Sands (Clayton, NC/Smithfield-Selma HS) were first team picks, while pitcher Blake Ketner (Davidson, NC/NW Cabarrus HS) earned second team honors.

 Thomas, a senior, currently leads Catawba with a .432 average and has connected on a career-high 20 home runs with 57 RBI.  He also paces the team with 74 runs scored and has swiped 22 bases.  Thomas was the 2008 South Atlantic Conference Player of the Year and is a three-time all-region performer.

 Sands, a junior, has set a school record this season with 80 RBI and has hit 23 homers.  He has also set a record by drawing 52 walks and ranks second on the team with 73 runs scored.  Sands has made all-region in each of his three seasons at Catawba.

Ketner, a junior, claims all-region honors for the first time.  In 2008, he has posted an 8-3 record and 3.16 ERA.  He has tossed a team-high 88 and a third innings with a pair of shutouts.
