Boca Raton, Fla. - Florida Atlantic University senior closer Hugh Adams has been named to the midseason Stopper of the Year Watch List by the National Baseball Collegiate Writers Association. He holds the Owls' career record with 25 saves and is three saves shy of tying the Sun Belt Conference's all-time record.
"This is a well-deserved honor for Hugh to be added to the list. We are very proud of him," said John McCormack, FAU's head baseball coach.
This season, Adams ranks fourth nationally and leads the SBC with 12 saves - a key statistic in making the Owls a contender for the league's regular-season championship. He has made 17 appearances and has a 2.29 earned run average. The latest appearance for the Bethesda, Md. native was a scoreless ninth inning in FAU's 5-4 win over the University of Louisiana on April 20.
The right hander earned first-team All-South Central Region honors following the 2011 season.
FAU stands 26-14 on the season and is scheduled to play the series-deciding game with the University of Miami on Wednesday, April 24 at 6 p.m. in Coral Gables. Live audio and statistics of the game will be available at www.fausports.com.
