Four baseball players at The Master’s College were honored by the National Christian College Athletic Association on Tuesday.

The biggest award went to senior Charlie Gillies, who was named NCCAA Pitcher of the Year, which also placed him on the All-American first team.

Fellow TMC player Bryan Lucas, who graduated last week, was placed on the NCCAA second team, while teammates A.J. Work and Tommy Kister earned spots on the NCCAA West All-Region Baseball Team.

Gillies was already named Golden State Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Year last month after leading the conference in ERA, opponent batting average and strikeouts.

With postseason included, Gillies finished with an 8-6 record, a 2.17 ERA, .186 opponent batting average and 118 strikeouts, which ranked sixth in the nation among National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Division I players.

As TMC’s starting catcher, Lucas ended up batting .288 for the season with nine home runs and 34 RBIs while he threw out a GSAC-high 26 baserunners from behind the plate.

Work was a regular starter for the Mustangs, and he came in with an 11-2 record in 14 starts to go along with a 2.48 ERA and 55 strikeouts. In 23 appearances as a relief pitcher, Kister accumulated a 3-2 record, 2.43 ERA and 27 strikeouts.
