HAMMOND, Ind. & WESTVILLE, Ind. – Purdue University Northwest baseball players Matt Sandoval and Larry Crisler earned Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference all-first team honors.

 Sandoval (Highland, Ind./Bishop Noll) has had a stellar season on the mound for the Black and Gold, ranking first in the CCAC with a 1.48 ERA an 8-1 record in the regular season. He also finished the season with 66 strikeouts in 61 innings pitched and recorded a pair of saves on the year and was named the CCAC Pitcher of the Week.

 Crisler (Gary, Ind./Bishop Noll) played a large role in the Pride’s offense during the season, ranking first on the team with a .357 batting average, 11 doubles, two home runs, 48 runs scored and a .550 slugging percentage. Crisler also ranks second on the squad with 25 RBI and five triples in 38 games.

Indiana South Bend senior first baseman Chris Mangus was named the CCAC Player of the Year, while Judson’s Ty Parquette scored Pitcher of the Year honors after recording a 10-0 regular-season record. SXU freshman first-baseman Matt Monahan was selected as the CCAC Freshman of the Year and Coach of the Year went to

Judson’s Chad Gassman after leading the Eagles to a regular-season title and an automatic berth in the NAIA National Tournament.

The Black and Gold are coming off a one-run victory over No. 1 seeded Judson in the CCAC Postseason Tournament, and will face off with seventh-seeded St. Francis (Ill.) Monday at 1:30 p.m. CT in Elgin.

Should the Pride win Monday’s contest, they will play later that day in the 7:30 p.m. contest for a chance to play in Tuesday’s tournament semifinal.
