Two Leopards Garner All-Patriot League Honors

May 10, 2017

CENTER VALLEY, Pa. – Sophomore John Selsor and junior Steven Cohen of the Lafayette baseball team received All-Patriot League honors on Wednesday afternoon, as announced by the conference.

This was the first year that Selsor was recognized as an All-League player as he garnered first-team honors, while Cohen earned second team all-league recognition for the third straight season.

Selsor was a constant power threat in the third spot in the lineup and capped off his sophomore campaign by setting a school record for doubles in a single season with 19. He led the conference in two-baggers and ranked inside the top-20 in Division I. Starting in 50 games behind the plate or as the designated hitter, Selsor had 18 multi-hit outings and compiled a .301 batting average with 58 hits, four homers and a team-best 35 RBIs.

Cohen was inserted into the leadoff spot near the midway point of the season and flourished. The junior second baseman led the Leopards at the dish with a .331 clip to go along with a team-best .534 slugging percentage and .420 on-base percentage. He recorded 19 multi-hit games and led the team in hits (59) and runs scored (36), while tallying 15 doubles, three triples, five homers, 16 RBIs and eight stolen bases.

The Newtown Square, Pa. native was also named the Patriot League Player of the Week, the only Leopard to do so this season, on April 18.

The Leopards closed out the 2017 season last weekend in thrilling fashion as they won five of their last seven, including three wins coming on walk-off hits.
