College of Charleston dominates CAA baseball awards | lectures

College of Charleston collected three of the five major postseason awards in CAA baseball, and had a record-tying 14 selections to the Colonial Athletic Association’s all-conference teams.

William Privette was named the CAA pitcher of the year, while outfielder Tyler Sorrentino was named co-rookie of the year and Chad Holbrook the league’s coach of the year after the Cougars went 36-17 overall and 19-5 in the CAA to lock up the regular season title and No. 1 seed for the conference tournament, which begins May 25 at Elon.

Three Cougars — Privette, catcher JT Marr and pitcher Ty Good — were named first-team all-CAA, with Sorrentino, Cam Dean, Joseph Mershon, Sam Cochrane and Trotter Harlan on the second team. Reed Parris earned an honorable mention, while Sorrentino and pitcher Daniel Brooks made the all-rookie squad.

Privette is the second player in school history to earn CAA pitcher of the year honors, joining 2015 pick Taylor Clarke of the Kansas City Royals. The 6-6 right-hander led the CAA and the nation with an ERA of 0.95 with a league-best 12 saves and a 3-1 record.

Sorrentino is the second player in program history to be named CAA rookie of the year, joining current Minnesota Twins pitcher. The West Essex, NJ native batted .292 with 45 runs scored, eight doubles, four triples, a home run and 31 RBI, and had a .330 average in league play.

Holbrook is the second skipper in school history to be named CAA coach of the year, joining current Clemson head coach Monte Lee.
