Valley Sports Report
OLEAN, N.Y. — Waverly grad Brendyn Stillman, a junior on the St. Bonaventure baseball team, earned second-team All-America accolades from Collegiate Baseball Newspaper.
Stillman led the nation with a .519 batting average, and was one of only two Division I players to hit .500 or better in the abbreviated season.
Stillman also led the nation with a slugging percentage of 1.259, after hitting six home runs and two doubles in seven games. His .594 on-base percentage was fifth in the nation, and he was second in home runs per game.
Stillman collected 14 base hits in 27 at-bats, wild five times and struck out just four times.
At 6-2, 230 pounds, Stillman went 9-for-10 with four home runs, a double, eight RBI and seven runs scored in a doubleheader against Mount St. Mary’s on Feb. 22.
Stillman, in his first year with the program after transferring from Herkimer CC, was one of nine outfielders selected to the three Collegiate Baseball All-America teams. He was the only non-Power 5 outfielder to be picked to either the first or second team, joining standouts from Arkansas, Vanderbilt, Texas A&M, Virginia and Florida.
"Brendyn showed a rare combination of being selective at the plate and ability to hit with power," St. Bonaventure head coach Larry Sudbrook said. "We would have liked to have seen the numbers he could've put up if able to play the whole season. We are looking forward to seeing what he can do next year in a full season and putting up some really impressive numbers in a Bonnies uniform against Atlantic 10 pitching."
