Patterson Earns Mid-Atlantic Region Rookie of the Year

FREDERiCK, Md. - Hood College's Jordan Patterson was named the Mid-Atlantic Region Rookie of the Year and earned a spot on the All-Mid-Atlantic Region Second Team as a utility player. 

A shortstop who also serves as the Blazers' closer, he is the second Hood player to earn the Mid-Atlantic's Rookie of the Year honor in the program's three seasons. Josh Gall was awarded the honor in 2015. 

In the regular season, Patterson tied for fifth in the MAC Commonwealth in hits with 50 and tied for sixth with 34 RBIs. He played in all 40 games and scored 25 runs to go along with 10 doubles, one triple and six stolen bases. Patterson batted .368 and walked 17 times against just 16 strikeouts. He had 15 multi-hit games, including four-hit efforts against conference foes Messiah and Stevenson.

On the mound, he tied for second in the conference with a school-record six saves. He pitched 9.1 innings in nine appearances, striking out eight. All six of his saves came against MAC Commonwealth opposition: Lebanon Valley, Stevenson, Messiah, Albright (two) and Widener. 

Patterson helped the Blazers to their first .500 season in school history as Hood finished 20-20.
