Mount Aloysius outfielder Connor Bowie earned a spot on the Canadian Baseball Network’s all-Canadian team, as announced by the organization last Monday.
Bowie is the first Mountie athlete in school history to be named to a Canadian national team.
Bowie was named to the third team following an outstanding sophomore campaign for the Ancaster, Ontario native. Bowie, an AMCC first team all-conference selection, also earned a first-team spot on the ABCA all-mideast region team.
He enjoyed a breakout season for the Mounties in which he led the team and tied for first in the conference in hits with 60 and led the Mounties in runs (39), RBIs (32), home runs (four), slugging percentage (.682) and on-base percentage (.522) while starting all 39 games in the outfield.
His .455 average was the highest compiled by any Canadian player.
Bowie’s work at the plate and in the field helped advance Mount Aloysius to the AMCC postseason final four for the third consecutive season.
The All-Canadian team consisted of players from all levels of American college baseball. The voting panel consisted of 18 coaches, from elite programs to colleges on both sides of the border; 17 writers (nine from the Canadian Baseball Network) and others who write about the draft and college baseball, 11 scouts, nine suits (executives, front-office staff), three former players and one agent.
