OSU Players Heap on Kudos
Oregon State junior catcher Adley Rutschman and junior left-handed pitcher Jake Mulholland each picked up All-American honors on Wednesday. Rutschman was selected first team by both Perfect Game and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA). Mulholland, meanwhile, picked up a third team honor by the NCBWA. Rutschman, additionally, was selected first-team all-region by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA).
Mulholland joins Michael Conforto (2012-14) as the only three-time All-Americans in Oregon State’s history. He tallied eight saves and finished with a 3-3 record and 1.93 earned run average in 28 relief outings, which led the Beavers’ pitching staff.
No Beach Soccer
Exploding Whale Sports is reporting that the Copa Cobana 5 on 5 beach soccer competition has been scratched. They reported that after the inaugural event last summer at the beach by Driftwood Shores they planned another event for this month, but there was no response from any teams. Copa Cobana Sports said that they received good reviews from last year’s event and were disappointed in the lack of interest this year. They had also planned a June event for Newport, but after some initial contact received no communication from the city.
