Mears named CAC Co-Player of the Year, Three Wolverines land on All-CAC teams

YORK, Pa. – Three Wesley College baseball players were awarded All-Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) honors, as announced by the conference on Tuesday.

Senior outfielder Trey Mears was named the CAC Co-Player of the Year and also earned a spot on the All-CAC First Team. Mears becomes the second Wolverine to be named Player of the Year, joining Rob Benedict, who won the award in 2012. It was the fourth time Mears has received postseason accolades from the conference after winning the CAC Rookie of the Year in 2013 and second team All-CAC laurels in 2014 and 2016.

Mears led the CAC in batting average (.500), runs batted in (54), stolen bases (41), hits (68), runs scored (56), total bases (105), on-base percentage (.568) and slugging percentage (.772). Mears also knocked seven home runs with 14 doubles on the year. Mears reached base in all 34 games and registered a hit in 30 of Wesley's 34 games. He was a two-time Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference South Player of the Week and twice on the D3baseball.com Team of the Week in 2017.

Junior infielder Chris Seibert also landed a spot on the All-CAC First Team. Seibert tallied 24 extra-base hits in 2017, tops in the CAC. Seibert also ranked second in the conference in batting average (.411), RBI (53) and slugging percentage (.716) and tied for second in in home runs (9).

Junior pitcher Alex Marrs earned All-CAC Second Team accolades. Marrs tied with Salisbury's Pete Grasso for the most wins in the CAC with eight. Marrs also recorded the fourth-best strikeout total in the conference (78), along with the fifth-lowest earned-run average (2.97).

It was the first time Seibert and Marrs were named to the All-CAC teams.

The Wolverines finished third in the CAC Tournament with an overall record of 19-15 and a CAC record of 9-9.
