SCIAC Baseball All-Conference Teams Announced

The 2018 All-Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) baseball teams were announced Thursday following a vote conducted by the league's member head coaches.

Redlands' Brendan Gardiner was voted the SCIAC Athlete of the Year and a First Team All-SCIAC selection in 2018 after helping the Bulldogs to a 19-5 record in conference play and the second seed in the upcoming conference tournament. Gardiner was terrific at the dish against SCIAC competition registering 35 hits in 95 at-bats (.368), including 10 doubles, three triples, three homers and 25 RBI. He also scored 28 runs and was 16-for-17 in stolen base attempts. In addition, he amassed 20 putouts and 33 assists in 59 total chances. 

His Redlands teammate Adam Stead was voted the SCIAC Pitcher of the Year and a First Team All-SCIAC honoree. Stead posted a 6-0 record in eight appearances on the hill for the Bulldogs. Over 52 innings, Stead dealt 61 strikeouts and logged an impressive 0.87 ERA in conference play. He also fielded his position cleanly, tallying three putouts and six assists on nine total chances with zero errors for a 1.000 fielding percentage. 

Claremont-Mudd-Scripps' (CMS) Patrick Gavin was voted the SCIAC Newcomer of the Year. Gavin hit .273 in his debut campaign for the Stags, connecting for 24 hits, highlighted by six doubles, five home runs, 16 RBI and 14 runs scored. The Santa Rosa, Calif. native appeared in 23 league games this year and registered at least one hit in all but six. 

Scott Winterburn and the La Verne coaching staff earned SCIAC Coaching Staff of the Year honors after the Leopards secured the top seed in the conference tournament with a 19-5 ledger in SCIAC play and a series win over Redlands. Winterburn was also voted the SCIAC Coach of the Year in 2015.
