Brua, Phinney named All-Buckeye

Avon graduate Phil Brua and Oberlin graduate Max Phinney were named to the Division III All-Buckeye State teams.

Brua was tabbed as a second-team selection, while Phinney notched honorable mention honors.

Brua, who is currently pitching for the Vancouver Canadians, a short-season Class A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays, capped off his senior season in the crimson and gold by locking down five saves to go along with three wins in 20 appearances.

Opponents batted just .213 against him, while he held left-handed batters down to a .140 average. The Second Team All-NCAC selection also had a WHIP of just 1.07.

Phinney led the Yeomen with a .357 batting average. He also paced the Yeomen with 28 RBIs and a .470 slugging percentage. Furthermore, the All-NCAC Honorable Mention selection was second on the squad in hits (41), total bases (54) and doubles (8). He also added three outfield assists and his five sacrifice flies were good for a single-season school record.
