Price named to LEC Baseball All-Tournament Team

GORHAM, Maine - One of the Plymouth State College baseball players was selected to the Little East Conference All-Tournament Team after helping the Panthers to a pair of upset wins last week.

Sophomore Matt Price (Epping, N.H.) was PSC's representative on the All-Tournament Team. Price was selected as the All-Tourney first baseman after batting .533 in PSC's four games, including a pair of doubles and five RBI. He also walked twice and performed flawlessly in the field, handling 48 chances.

Price had a pair of RBI last Tuesday as fifth-seeded Plymouth State upset fourth-seeded Keene State in a first round game, 5-2. He doubled home two more runs in Friday's 7-3 loss to top-seeded Southern Maine, and added three hits in PSC's elimination of third-seeded UMass Dartmouth, 11-3.

PSC finished third in the tournament after dropping Friday's elimination game to second-seeded Eastern Connecticut, 16-1. The Warriors went on to defeat Southern Maine twice on Saturday, 7-4 and 9-1, to capture the LEC Championship and automatic bid to the Division III NCAA Tournament.

The Panthers completed the season with a 17-21 overall record, and a 5-9 LEC mark. Head coach Dennis McManus picked up career win No. 300 in the Panthers' final victory of the season, giving him a career mark of 300-288-3 in 17 years.
