First time since 2016 that ETSU has multiple All-Region selections

 GREENSBORO, N.C. – ETSU baseball players Cameron Sisneros and Nick Iannantone were both named to the 2024 ABCA/Rawlings NCAA Division I All-Southeast Region Second Team by the organization on Tuesday. It marks the first time since 2016 that the Bucs have had multiple All-Region selections in a season (Hagen Owenby and Trey York). 

 Sisneros put together one of the best offensive seasons in the history of ETSU baseball in 2024. Sisneros led ETSU in slugging percentage (.766), RBI (86), multi-RBI games (22), home runs (23), and total bases (164). His 86 RBI broke the single season program record in that category, while his 23 home runs were the second-most ever by a Buc in a single campaign. Hitting .369 with an OPS of 1.259, Sisneros earned SoCon Player of the Year honors by the league’s media members. He is the first ETSU player to earn conference player of the year honors since 2010 when Paul Hoilman garnered the same recognition in the Atlantic Sun. Sisneros is the first SoCon Player of the Year for ETSU since 2004 (Caleb Moore). Sisneros ended his time with ETSU by reaching base in 79 straight games and ended the season with more home runs (23) than strikeouts (20).

 As ETSU’s leadoff hitter all season long, Iannantone played a key role in sparking the Buccaneer offense. The senior from Plainfield, Illinois led ETSU in batting average (.387), at-bats (217), runs scored (65), hits (84), multi-hit games (26), walks (51), and on-base percentage (.505). He also concluded the season on an 18-game hitting streak and a 24-game reached base streak. Iannantone, who landed a spot on the All-SoCon Second Team as a designated hitter, played well during the Bucs’ run in the SoCon Tournament late last month hitting .429 with nine runs scored. For his efforts during the Tournament, Iannantone landed a spot on the SoCon’s All-Tournament Team.
