Brooks Named the Consensus Southeast Region Pitcher of the Year

12_BB_BrooksCragiBIG

Catawba junior Craig Brooks (Monroe, NC/Parkwood HS) was the consensus Southeast Region Pitcher of the Year, earning that honor from three regional post-season teams.  Brooks and relief pitcher Ryan McClintock (Matthews, NC/Providence HS) were named first team All-Southeast Region on all three teams by Daktronics, the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association and the America Baseball Coaches Association.

 Also earning post-season region honors were pitcher Shaefer Shepard (Boca Raton, FL/Boca Raton HS/Francis Marion) and designated hitter T.J. Wharton (Lutz, FL/Bishop McLaughlin HS/Guilford Tech).  Shepard was a second team pick by the ABCA and Daktronics, while Wharton earned his second team honors on the NCBWA and the ABCA teams.

 Brooks finished a dominate season with a 12-3 record and a 2.32 ERA.  He finished one win shy of the single-season school record and entered regional play with the most wins in NCAA II.  Over 89 and a third innings, Brooks allowed only 57 hits with 45 walks and 104 strikeouts.  Opponents hit just .184 against Brooks.

 McClintock led the conference with eight saves.  In a school record 33 appearances in 2014, the senior had a 2.20 ERA and also posted a 4-0 record.  McClintock surrendered 48 hits over 41 innings with 10 walks and 32 strikeouts.

 Shepard went 7-3 on the mound for Catawba as a red-shirt freshman.  He started six of 24 games, completing three with one shutout.  Shepard posted a league-low 1.46 ERA and gave up just 51 hits over 67 and two-thirds innings.  He walked 17 and fanned 57.

 Wharton led Catawba with 10 home runs and 57 runs batted in on the season, including a record-tying eight in a win over Pfeiffer.  He batted .298 over 51 games and added 10 doubles.  The junior also spent time behind the plate.

 Below is a list of all three post-season All-Southeast Region Teams
