Valenti & Reuillard Earn Capital One Academic All-District® Honors

STANDISH, Maine - The 2014-15 Capital One Academic All-District® Baseball Teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), have been released and Saint Joseph’s College senior pitcher Alex Valenti (Lawrence, Mass.) and junior outfielder Taylor Reuillard (Biddeford, Maine) have earned NCAA DIII District 1 All-Academic honors.

Both players are now eligible for even higher academic honors as All-District recipients advance to the Capital One Academic Team ballot, where first, second and third team members will be selected later this month.

Valenti and Reuillard are the first Saint Joseph’s baseball players to earn a Capital One Academic All-District® award since former standout Chris Campbell ’11 claimed the same honor during his senior season.

Valenti, the 2015 Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) Pitcher of the Year and First Team All-Conference selection, posted a 3.86 ERA with a 3-4 record and a team-high 60 strikeouts in 56 innings this spring. A two-year team captain, Valenti has earned multiple academic honors as a Business Major, including a pair of GNAC All-Academic awards, and was selected as the 2015 SJC Male Student-Athlete of the Year in a banquet held last week.

A four-year contributor on the mound for the Monks, Valenti owns a 13-9 record with a 3.05 ERA and 173 strikeouts over 189 career innings. He ranks among the program’s all-time leaders in K’s (10th), appearances (44, 8th), ERA (11th) and innings (6th).

Reuillard, a two-time All-Conference honoree and 2015 First Team All-GNAC selection, enjoyed an outstanding junior season, hitting .402 (66-164) with 35 runs, 15 doubles, four triples, a home run, 29 RBI and 10 stolen bases as the Monks’ starting left fielder. An Exercise Science Major at Saint Joseph’s, Reuillard is on his way to earning his second GNAC All-Academic honor this summer.

Over three seasons, Reuillard owns a .350 (128-366) batting average with 60 runs, 26 doubles, six triples, two homers, 57 RBI and 18 stolen bases in 111 career contests.
Valenti and Reuillard are the only players hailing from either a GNAC institution or a Maine college or university to collect 2014-15 Capital One Academic All-District® acclaim.

Coyne & Reuillard Claim ABCA/Rawlings & NEIBA All-Region Honors

STANDISH, Maine – The ABCA/Rawlings and New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association (NEIBA) All-Region Teams have been released and a pair of Saint Joseph’s College players have received awards.

Senior catcher Joe Coyne (Duxbury, Mass.) has collected Second Team accolades for both organizations while junior outfielder Taylor Reuillard (Biddeford, Maine) has claimed ABCA/Rawlings and NEIBA Third Team honors.

Coyne, who earned Second Team D3Baseball.com All-New England acclaim earlier this week, hit .404 (61-151) with 31 runs, 17 doubles, two triples, three homers, 36 RBI and six steals in 43 contests as a senior. The four-time First Team All-GNAC selection and 2015 Conference Player of the Year honoree led the Monks in doubles, home runs, slugging (.603) and OBP (.480) and ranked second on the squad in hits (61) this spring.
For his career, Coyne hit .350 (219-626) with 114 runs, 52 doubles, five triples, nine home runs, 121 RBI and 13 steals over 178 contests as a four-year starter. Coyne missed just one game over four seasons and capped his collegiate career as the Monks' all-time leader in games and at bats and is currently second in hits (219) and doubles (52), sixth in extra-base hits (66) and total bases (308), and eighth in RBI.

Reuillard, a 2015 First Team All-Conference and First Team D3Baseball.com All-New England selection, claims the second and third regional awards of his career after recording an outstanding season. This spring, the junior outfielder led the Monks in at bats (164), runs, hits (66), sac bunts (9) and stolen bases (10) and was second on the team in batting (.402), doubles (15), RBI (29, slugging (.561) and OBP (.421). His 2015 hit tally is tied for the fifth-most in the history of SJC baseball.

Through three seasons, Reuillard owns a .350 (128-366) batting average with 60 runs, 26 doubles, six triples, two homers, 57 RBI and 18 steals over 111 career contests.
Saint Joseph's, the top seed in the 2015 Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) Tournament, opened postseason play with a 7-0 defeat over Lasell College on April 23rd, but fell out of contention with losses to Suffolk University (the eventual conference champion) and Johnson & Wales University on April 25th. The loss to JWU snapped a five-year GNAC title streak and left the Monks outside of the NCAA DIII New England Regional Tournament for the first time since 2009 and just the second time since 2006.
