Little and Hanna named to All-Region Teams

WASHINGTON – Marc Hanna and Tommy Little were named to the All-Mid-Atlantic Teams on Friday.  The pair of Cardinals received Third Team honors after earning First Team All-Landmark Conference accolades earlier this month.

Little earns his second All-Region honor of his career, after being named to the Second Team in 2008.  He also captured Landmark Conference Rookie of the Year and First Team All-Conference accolades that season.

In 2012, Little batted .357 for CUA, totaling 41 hits, five doubles and 10 RBIs during that time.  The Maryland native recorded nine multi-hit games, including back-to-back four-hit performances vs. Merchant Marine Academy in mid-April.  Little also stole 10 bases and posted a .947 fielding percentage with 53 putouts and only three errors.

After receiving his first career All-Conference honor earlier this month, Hanna now adds his first All-Region selection.  The sophomore hit .319 with 43 hits, seven doubles and 30 RBIs in 39 games.  The Cardinals’ third baseman also totaled a .913 fielding percentage, to go along with 24 putouts and 81 assists.

Among all Cardinals, Hanna ranked in the top-five in batting average, slugging percentage, runs scored, hits, RBIs, doubles, triples, home runs, total bases and walks.  The New Jersey native registered 14 multi-hit games and seven games with two or more runs batted in.

CUA finished the 2012 season with a record of 24-17, marking the fifth straight year in which the Cardinals won at least 20 games.  One of those wins was an 8-6 victory over Stevenson on April 7, which gave Head Coach Ross Natoli the 500th win of his career.
