Daily Staff Report - sports@nvdaily.com

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Shenandoah University had four baseball players named All-South Region in selections announced recently by the American Baseball Coaches Association.

Seniors Jake Pendergraft and Cory Nelson were named first team All-Region at outfield and at utility, respectively, with junior Nick Beall earning a second-team nod at designated hitter.

Beall's classmate, Joey Donofrio, rounds out the honorees with a third-team selection in the outfield.

Pendergraft led the Hornets with a .423 average on 74 hits in 175 at-bats, Nelson hit .323 and had a 6-4 record on the mound and Beall hit .421 as the team's primary DH.

Pendergraft and Beall were both named first team All-USA South, Nelson second team All-USA South at both pitcher and utility and all three grabbed spots on the Newport News Regional All-Tournament team.

Beall and Nelson also were named to the USA South All-Tournament team.

Donofrio hit .330 and led the team in home runs with nine from his leadoff spot in the order. This is his first post-season honor.

Shenandoah finished its 2012 season with a 31-13 record and played in the NCAA Tournament for a fourth straight season.
