Three NCC baseball players won the All-American honor
The Northampton Baseball team had three players named to the NJCAA First Team All-American squad, as announced by the national office in June. The three All-Americans brings Northampton's total to seven selections in program history.
Tommy Dunleavy, a Region XIX Player of the Year from Bushkill, PA, CJ Peechatka, a First Team All-Region selection from Henryville, PA, and Noah Weber, a First Team All-Region selection from Mohnton, PA, each earned All-American honors.
The good news came after Northampton's winningest season in the college’s history, a 37-10 season. The team reached #2 in the NJCAA national poll.
"Being named an All-American is a testament to how hard these three student-athletes worked and dedicated themselves to the program. I couldn't be more proud of these young men," Head Coach Adrian Yaguez stated.
Dunleavy finished the season with a .412 batting average, 21 doubles, 14 homeruns and 56 RBI.
Peechatka batted .399 with 16 homeruns, 8 triples and 65 RBI, finishing his career as Northampton's all-time leader in homeruns (27) and RBI (118).
Weber finished with a 9-1 overall record with a 1.61 ERA. Weber struck out 57 and walked only 7 batters in 78.1 innings of work. Weber leaves Northampton as the career leader in wins (16).
Weber, who was also named to the Region XIX All-Academic Team for holding an above average GPA in the spring, said, “This a great achievement. It’s also a testament to what our athletic department is all about, which is being an athlete and a student. You want perform both on the field and in the classroom.”
