Former Saint Anne's Belfield baseball stand out Trevor Knight returned to Charlottesville this summer, after completing his freshman year at James Madison University. The former Saint took his talent from STAB and applied it well at the college level, helping the lead the Dukes to the NCAA Tournament, and get some recognition individually, as well.
Knight stood out as a two way star for JMU. On the mound, he was 7-3 with six saves, good enough for a number three ranking on the all time season saves list at the school. At the plate, Knight assumed the designated hitter role, batting .360 with three home runs and 28 RBI. He led all James Madison hitters in the postseason with a .450 averaging, while belting two homers and knocking in nine runs.
The former Saint began a pretty impressive awards list in just his first season. Knight was a Collegiate Baseball/ Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American. He was all honored as part of the CAA All Rookie Team, and on the conference's all tournament team, as well.
The Dukes earned a trip to the NCAA Tournament, where they earned a victory, and lost a heart-breaker to South Carolina on a walk-off home run. Knight says that he and his team are ready to get to work and try to make a Super Region in 2009. Knight also discussed how STAB prepared him and other great players for the next level.
