Five Cardinals Named All-SUNYAC
FREDONIA, N.Y. (May 11, 2010) – State University of New York Athletic Conference regular-season runner-up SUNY Plattsburgh landed five players on the all-conference baseball team, which was second to Cortland’s six.
Infielders Tory Bouyea and Pat Shaughnessy, both from Plattsburgh High School, and
right-handed pitcher Dan Tracy made the first team, while third baseman Donny Coolidge
(Plattsburgh HS) and outfielder Danny Roeser (Suffern HS) were selected to the second
A junior shortstop, Bouyea paced the Cardinals with a career-high .392 batting average that included a school-record 62 hits. He also set program benchmarks for at-bats (158) and runs scored (48). The Clinton Community College transfer has reached the 100-hit plateau in just two seasons at Plattsburgh, becoming just the 10th player in history to reach that milestone when he singled in his last plate appearance on Friday as part of a three-hit afternoon.
Shaughnessy, a sophomore second baseman, had a career year offensively with a .367 average, six home runs to tie the school single-season record, 37 runs batted in, 86 total bases to set a new team mark, .619 slugging percentage and a .461 on-base clip.
Tracy, a sophomore out of Somers High, led the SUNYAC with nine wins (9-0) while setting the Plattsburgh record for season victories. He also tied the all-time mark of 14 wins that was originally established 41 years ago. He posted a 4.43 earned-run average and opponents hit .282 against him.
Coolidge had a career year at the plate despite missing the previous two years due to military commitments. The junior hit .349 with school records of 16 doubles and 44 RBI. He also stole 22 bases, which ranks fourth on the school’s all-time single season chart.
Roeser, a junior college transfer from Rockland Community College, batted .291 with a home run and 29 RBI in his first season with the Red and White. He tied Coolidge for the team lead with four triples – two shy of the school record for a season.
