Mansfield University standout senior pitcher Hunter DePrimo earned his third all-region team and fourth postseason honor after being named to the Atlantic-ABCA/Rawlings NCAA Division II 2nd-Team on Wednesday afternoon, June 2.
DePrimo is the first Mountaineer to complete the all-region trifecta since Anthony Renz ‘15 did so as a senior.
DePrimo, a 1st-Team All-PSAC East and 2nd-Team NCBWA and D2CCA All-Atlantic Region starting pitcher, started nine games, going 6-3 with a 3.98 ERA.
DePrimo ranked second in the entire PSAC with 83 strikeouts as he fanned double-digit hitters in four starts. The right-hander struck out 10 hitters against Lock Haven, 13 hitters against West Chester and Bloomsburg, before sitting down a conference-leading 15 batters in a victory over Shepherd to earn NCBWA Atlantic Region Pitcher of the Week.
DePrimo was a horse in the circle during the entire 2021 campaign where his six complete games placed him in a tie for first in the PSAC. DePrimo has struck out an unprecedented 207 hitters over just three full seasons.
DePrimo graduated in May with a degree in accounting.
The ABCA/Rawlings All-Region teams, featuring athletes from eight Div. II regions, are voted on by members of the American Baseball Coaches Association and the process is led by the ABCA NCAA Div. II All-America Committee.
