Walker And Lanier Named NCCSIA All-State
The North Carolina Collegiate Sports Information Association (NCCSIA) announced its selections for the 2019 College Division All-State Baseball and Softball Teams this week.
Walker, an infielder from Pasadena, MD, garners a Second Team selection after leading the Hawks offensively with a .441 batting average, 52 hits, 18 doubles, 22 RBI, and 29 walks. Walker earned All-CIAA Second Team honors this season after posting similar numbers to her impressive freshman season last year. In 2018, Walker earned CIAA Rookie of the Year, First Team All-CIAA, and NFCA All-Region.
Lanier, an outfielder from Warsaw, VA, adds the First Team selection to his lengthy postseason accolades this season after being named Conference Carolinas Co-Player of the Year, Conference Carolinas First Team, D2CCA All-Region First Team, and an NCBWA All-Region First Team selection.
The outfielder hit .403 on the season with 15 home runs, 14 doubles, while driving in 44 RBI and stealing 11 bases. Lanier led the Conference Carolinas in slugging percentage while ranking second in batting average, and fourth in home runs.
