MOUNT OLIVE, N.C. – Following the NCAA Baseball Southeast Regional Tournament at the University of Mount Olive, tournament officials selected the All-Tournament Team with Georgia College's Cal Gentry (Perry, Georgia) being named the tournament's best third baseman.

The freshman had no trouble adjusting to the heightened pressure of NCAA postseason baseball, going 4-for-8 (.500) with three runs scored over the two games the Bobcats played at the regional.

The 2017 season has come to a close for Georgia College, a 35-15 campaign highlighted by winning the 2017 PBC Tournament after going 16-8 in league play. The Bobcats were an offensive juggernaut, leading the country in batting average and runs per contest. GC Baseball put six on the All-PBC Teams, with Brandon Benson being named the PBC and Southeast Region Player of the Year. Benson and Gentry have both been named All-Americans and were joined by junior Logan Mattix on the All-Region teams as well.
