Wildcats place five players on All-State second team

Five players for Pearl River Community College were named to the 2017 All-MACJC baseball second team, in voting by conference coaches.

Earning second-team honors were first baseman Simon Landry, third baseman Lucas Scott, and pitchers Colby White, Luke Bradley and Peyton Lee.

Landry, a freshman from Ponchatoula, La., led the Wildcats in most offensive categories this season. He had 52 hits in 171 at-bats, scored 45 runs, drove in 46 runs, hit 13 doubles and 14 home runs, all team highs. He finished with a .304 batting average.

Scott, a sophomore from Lucedale and George County High School, led PRCC with a .340 batting average, with 49 hits in 144 at-bats. He scored 31 runs, hit nine doubles, three triples, four homers and drove in 26 runs.

White, a freshman right-hander from Foxworth and West Marion High School, was 6-3 on the season and had five saves. He struck out 62 batters and walked 25 in 55 2/3 innings, and finished with a 2.43 earned-run average. 

Bradley, a freshman right-hander from Bay St. Louis who prepped at St. Stanislaus, had a 4-0 record with three saves, all in relief. He allowed just seven earned runs in 25 2/3 innings for a 2.45 ERA, struck out 21 and walked just six.

Lee, a sophomore right-hander from Picayune who doubled as an outfielder for the Wildcats, was 7-2 for the season with a 4.98 ERA. He struck out 66 batters and walked 17 in 65 innings. He also batted .264 with a pair of homers and 18 RBIs.

Pearl River was 29-20 in Michael Avalon's first season as head coach of the Wildcats, advancing to the semifinal round of the NJCAA Region 23 Tournament.
