Nick Collins was named to the All-BIG EAST Second Team as a catcher.
May 19, 2014
WASHINGTON – Georgetown baseball’s Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) capped his sophomore campaign with a pair of postseason awards on Monday. Collins, who split time as the Hoyas catcher and designated hitter, was named to the All-BIG EAST First Team as the designated hitter and the second team as a catcher.
Collins, who will be playing for the Chatham Anglers in the prestigious Cape Cod League this summer, started all 48 games for the Hoyas this season with 25 starts coming behind the plate and 23 as the team’s designated hitter. He led the Hoyas with a .351 batting average and a .418 on-base percentage. His 66 hits not only led Georgetown, but the entire BIG EAST. Collins ranked second on the Blue & Gray in RBI (38), runs scored (31), was tied for second in home runs (2) and finished third in doubles (8). His 23 multiple-hit games were the most on the team, and he finished the season having reached base safely in 18 consecutive games.
“I am really proud of the season Nick had for us this year and am happy that his efforts were recognized by the other coaches in the league,” Georgetown Head Coach Pete Wilk said. “Being named All-BIG EAST at two different positions is a testament to how important he was to our season.”
Georgetown finished the 2014 season with a 19-29 overall record and a 5-13 mark in the BIG EAST, including winning four of its final six conference games.
