Bobcats Sandlin and Bick Land Spots on Preseason All-PBC Team
AUGUSTA, Ga. – The Peach Belt Conference (PBC) announced its Baseball Preseason All-PBC Team Thursday, with No. 32 Georgia College putting two on the squad.
Bick was an All-Southeast Region honoree at shortstop a year ago, taking All-PBC First Team as well. Bick hit .363 and was second in the PBC with 72 runs scored, adding three home runs and 17 steals.
Sandlin earned All-PBC Second Team honors in his first year of action as a Bobcat, hitting .311 with nine home runs and 45 RBI, including a memorable grand slam as part of a six-RBI game in the PBC Tournament.
