Who are the top athletes of the spring?
If baseball isn't your thing, there are plenty of other sports to keep you occupied, and athletes to pay attention to. Here are some others:
Monica Abbott, Tennessee (softball) – The Vols senior is 32-1 with a 0.56 ERA with 498 strikeouts in 229 innings. I repeat: 498 strikeouts in 229 innings.
Ben Rubeor, Virginia (men's lacrosse) - The junior from Towson, Md is leading the nation with 54 points (37 goals, 17 assists) in 11 games this season.
Mary Key, Johns Hopkins (women’s lacrosse) – We were impressed with Rubeor ... until we saw Key's statline: 44 goals and 37 assists in 11 games! That's Jordan-esque.
And that's not even mentioning men's volleyball, men's water polo, golf, tennis and track & field. So today, we want to know which spring athletes should we be keeping an eye on.
mens water polo is a fall sport i believe
The entire Vanderbilt baseball team has been sick. They could definitely take the Nationals.
Dustin Ackley, North Carolina (baseball) - This freshman is leading the #2 ranked team in the nation with .467 average, 70 hits, and 49 RBI in 38 games. He just ended a 28 game hitting streak that was the third longest in school history.
Tony Thomas, the second basebman for Florida State is leading the #1 ranked Noles with a .465 average, 79 hits, 63 runs, 22 doubles, 3 triples, 7 dingers, a .776 slugging percentage, a .542 on-base percentage and has a .964 fielding percentage.
Keep a look out for Hicham Laalej, freshman tennis player for Stetson University. 21-3 record, first team all conference - the kid's a stud.
I am an avid, die hard, Florida Gator alum, and usually try to avoid too much FSU hoopla, but I have to say that, yes, Tony Thomas is a machine. I saw him play here in Gainesville, and I am sold. I've not seen a college player cover his position the way Thomas did, and he can hit about anywhere he wants, and run too. A four tool player (power maybe not top of his class, but 7 HR ain't bad). I hope my beloved Cincinnati Reds take note (even if it means signing a Nole).
Georgetown Men's Lacrosse is off to a strong 9-2 start right now and should clinch their division this weekend. Chase Gahan is getting back from surgery and should help their offense get back on trck and everyone in the country has to watch Preston Connell play defense. its poetry in motion.
Tony Thomas is a stud. Go Noles
