Donley, Dedelow, Pasteur and Sowers earn All-Big Ten honors #iubase

The Big Ten announced its annual awards on Tuesday, honoring four Hoosiers with all-conference selections.

Designated hitter Scott Donley picked up second team honors, centerfielder Craig Dedelow earned third team honors and classmates Isaiah Pasteur and Logan Sowers were both named to the freshman team.

This is the third consecutive year that Donley has picked up an All-Big Ten selection after being named to the first team in each of the previous two seasons. The Crown Point native leads Indiana with a .333 batting average, is tied for the team lead with 66 hits and is second with 33 RBIs. Donley also led IU during conference play with a .366 average and 16 RBIs. He has hits in 43 of the team’s last 52 games and recorded a 15-game hitting streak in April that stands as the program’s longest of the year.

Dedelow is tied with Donley for the team lead in hits. He leads Indiana with six home runs, 102 total bases and 21 multi-hit games, including four over the last seven contests. The Munster native leads IU in conference play with 32 hits, 21 runs and 54 total bases.

Pasteur and Sowers tied for second on the team with five homers apiece. Pasteur started 37 of the 48 games in which he appeared, batting .219 with 30 hits and 20 RBIs. Sowers, a four-time freshman of the week honoree, finished the regular season with a .268 average, 21 extra-base hits and 32 RBIs.

Will Nolden, who also earned the league’s postgraduate scholarship, is Indiana’s Sportsmanship Award honoree.
