ABCA Names Stutts & Maragos to All-Region Teams

LEXINGTON, Va. — The Washington and Lee Baseball team received two more postseason accolades as senior shortstop Jonathan Stutts (Charlotte, N.C./Charlotte Country Day) and senior first baseman Alex Maragos (Chicago, Ill./) were honored by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA).

Stutts garnered First Team All-South Region laurels and Maragos made the second team. It is the second straight year Stutts earned recognition from the ABCA, as he was selected to the second team last season. Stutts was also recently named first team all-region from D3Baseball.com, while Maragos was selected to the second team. 

This year, Stutts finished with a .403 average (third in the ODAC) in 34 games. He led the league in on-base percentage at .485 and tied for second in the conference in home runs with eight. He also had 39 runs (fifth in the ODAC), eight doubles, three triples (fifth in the ODAC), 20 walks, four stolen bases and a .676 slugging percentage (second in the ODAC).

Against Randolph-Macon in the ODAC Tournament, Stutts became the all-time hits leader at W&L. With a single into left field in the bottom of the fifth, he broke Michael Hanson's mark of 187. It was Stutts' second single of the game and the 188th hit of his career. He finished his four years with 189.

Maragos ended the year batting .358 to earn the first all-region honor of his career. He also totaled seven homers (fourth in the ODAC), 10 doubles, two triples, 36 RBI (fourth in the ODAC), 29 runs, a .409 on-base percentage and a .613 slugging percentage (fourth in the ODAC). He had a .994 fielding percentage, after making only two errors this year.  

The Generals ended the season 19-17, after being knocked out of the league tournament, 6-5, by Hampden-Sydney in 11 innings on April 27.
