Normoyle And Mattingly Named All-ABCA Mid-Atlantic Region
Normoyle Selected To Second Team and Mattingly Earns Spot On The Third Team
EWING, NJ – Washington College shortstop Ryan Normoyle (Mt. Laurel, NJ/Lenape) and pitcher Shane Mattingly (Ellicott City, MD/Centennial) were named to the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) Mid-Atlantic Region team in a vote by the baseball head coaches in the region. Normoyle was named to the second team, while Mattingly garnered third team honors. This is the second time that Normoyle has earned all-region honors by the ABCA, while this is the first time Mattingly has received all-region honors by the ABCA.
Normoyle led the team in batting (.403), runs (46), hits (60), doubles (16), triples (6), home runs (3), total bases (97), slugging (.651), on-base percentage (.471), stolen bases (40) and assists (105). He tied for the team lead in RBI (38) and tied for second in walks (21). He was tops in the Centennial Conference in stolen bases, total bases and triples. Normoyle, who batted .400 for the first time, finished his career with 208 hits as he is one of the five in the conference's history to reach that milestone and the only player from other than Johns Hopkins to achieve the feat. He is Washington's all-time leader in 14 different career categories and is either tied or holds the mark in nine single-season categories. This is the second time he has been named all-region by the ABCA as he was a third team pick in 2011. On Friday, he was named All-Mid-Atlantic Region Third Team by D3Baseball.com
Mattingly was the Shoremen's ace this spring on the mound, going 6-2 with a 3.14 ERA in 80.1 innings. He led the team in ERA, innings pitched, games started (11), complete games (4), opposing batting average (.231) and strikeouts (93), while tying for tops on the team in wins. He allowed just 11 walks this season and had a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 8.45-to-1. He also chalked up a save for the squad this season. His 93 strikeouts tied the program's record for strikeouts in a season as he tied Bill Bates who fanned 93 hitters in 1965. Mattingly had six games this season of 10 or more strikeouts and threw the first innings of a no-hitter against CCNY on March 4. In the Centennial Conference, he was tops in strikeouts and tied for first in walks allowed. This is the first time he has been named all-region by the ABCA.
Normoyle and Mattingly both graduated this past Sunday from Washington. Normoyle graduated with a B.A. in Mathematics, while Mattingly graduated with a B.A. in Business.
