Beard and King Earn SAC Baseball All-Tournament Honors
FOREST CITY, NC – Catawba had two players earn South Atlantic Conference Baseball All-Tournament honors for their efforts over the past weekend at McNair Field. Named to the 15 member squad were infielder Cameron Beard (Conover, NC/Bunker Hill HS) and pitcher Nate King (Vancouver, WA/Skyview/N.C. State).
Beard hit .333 over three games, collecting four hits in 12 at bats. One of sophomore’s hits was a double and he also drew four walks for a .500 on base percentage. Beard drove in four runs and scored four times.
King appeared in relief in all three games for the Indians, getting credit for the win against Newberry. Over four and a third innings he allowed no runs on just two hits as teams hit just .133 against the senior southpaw. King walked one and fanned four.
