ATHENS, Ohio - Sophomore first baseman Jake Madsen was named to the All-Mid-American Conference First Team by CollegeSportsMadness.com this past week.
Madsen (Cincinnati, Ohio) earned the honor after he posted a team-best .326 batting average this past season. In 2013, the left-handed batter led the Bobcats in 11 different offensive categories, including hits (72), on-base percentage (.376), RBI (37) and doubles (18). He also ranked among the MAC leaders several different categories, including hits (third) and doubles (second).
In addition, Madsen proved to be one of the Bobcats most consistent players in the lineup and in the field. During Ohio's 53-game season, Madsen was the only player to start at first base and bat out of the number three hole in every game.
During his two seasons at Ohio, Madsen has posted career totals of 148 hits (.335 avg.), 31 doubles, 69 RBI, 58 runs scored and a .389 on-base percentage. He also owns a .995 career fielding percentage.
