ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – The Georgia College Baseball team (25-19) brought in plenty of hardware as the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) held its end-of-year awards ceremony Thursday night, prior to the start of the PBC Tournament Friday.
The Bobcats took Freshman of the Year and placed four on the All-PBC Teams.
Centerfielder Cam Hill (Marietta) was PBC Freshman of the Year thanks to a .355 average, 43 runs scored and 30 RBIs. Also taking a slot on the All-PBC Second Team, Hill brought in a conference-record five PBC Freshman of the Week honors this season and ranks 10th in PBC in runs and eighth in batting average. He is the second PBC Freshman of the Year in GC Baseball history, joining 2016's Wesley Wommack.
Wommack took a spot on the All-PBC First Team in the outfield. He hit .393 with seven home runs, 34 RBIs and 27 runs. Wommack finished third in the PBC in average and was sixth in slugging percentage at .600. He is a three-time All-PBC honoree, making the first team in 2018 and the second squad in 2017. The most recent three-time All-PBC selection for the Bobcats is current assistant coach Jake Sandlin.
Joining Wommack on the first team was third baseman Garrett Green (Bogart). Green hit .343 with 29 runs and 25 RBIs this season. His first All-PBC honor in his career, Green is the sixth All-PBC First Team selection at third base in school history. The most recent one was teammate Cal Gentry (Perry).
Gentry makes his second appearance on the All-PBC Team this season, after also earning second team honors in 2017. Hitting a league-best .429, Gentry drove in 30 runs and scored 40 times this year. He also leads the PBC in on-base percentage at .500, is fifth in hits at 66 and 10th in slugging with a .565 clip. The last Bobcat to be named All-PBC in two different positions was Matthew Miller, as a first baseman last season and in the outfield in 2016.
The No. 5-seed Bobcats are back in action tomorrow, May 10 at 1:30 p.m. taking on No. 4-seed Young Harris College in the pool play round of the PBC Tournament at Flagler College in St. Augustine.
