GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Georgia College Baseball team continues to bring in the region's top honors, as the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA)/Rawlings All-Southeast Region Team was announced Wednesday. Junior Cal Gentry (Perry, Georgia) was chosen to the All-Southeast Region Second Team in the infield.

Gentry has now pulled in All-Region honors in two of the three organizations that select postseason teams. He won the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) batting title in the regular season and finished the year at .413, adding 30 RBIs and 42 runs with three home runs. He is a two-time Rawlings All-Region selection after being chosen at third base in 2017.

All-time, Georgia College has now had 68 student-athletes named to the ABCA/Rawlings All-Region list since 1994, including eight in the three seasons with head coach Jason Eller.

GC put four on the All-PBC Teams this season, led by seniors Garrett Green and Wesley Wommack on the first team, with Gentry and PBC Freshman of the Year Cam Hill as second-team selections. Georgia College also landed eight on the PBC All-Academic Team. Green was also an All-Region honoree in another organization.
