The season might be over, but the accolades continue to pour in for Georgetown College baseball. With the 2014 Avista World Series officially wrapping up Friday, the NAIA announced Monday morning the All-Americans.

Georgetown has two representatives – Martin Lemus and Tyler Arthur.

"It's an honor and a tribute to the respect this program is garnering to have two players on the All-American list," GC coach Micah Baumfeld said.

For the first time since 1987, Georgetown had a player on the first team list – Lemus. The senior from Lawndale, Calif., finished his career with a school season-record setting 13 homeruns, including a two-run shot at the world series.

He played all 57 games and had a .377 batting average with 41 runs scored and 54 RBIs. Lemus is ranked No. 5 in total putouts, No. 7 in homeruns, No. 8 in putouts per game, No. 12 in homeruns per game, No. 18 in total total bases and No. 23 in total runs batted in nationally.

He finished with a .643 slugging percentage and .490 on base percentage and struck out only 14 times with 37 walks (11 which were intentional) in 199 at bats. He was held hitless in just eight of the Tigers 57 games this year and in each of those he drew at least one walk.

"Martin really came focused this year," Baumfeld said. "He was a warrior for us on the field and at the plate. It is hard to think of him not coming back next year, but it was awesome to see him go out so strong. He was a huge part of the success we had this season. I hope some of his passion has rubbed off on our returners."

Arthur becomes the first Georgetown player to ever be listed on an All-American list twice in his Orange & Black career. After his impressive freshman season where he was tabbed Mid-South Conference Freshman of the Year and Pitcher of the Year, he came into the 2012 season as a preseason Second Team All-American. After a stellar junior campaign, he wraps up the 2014 season as an honorable mention.

The right-handed pitcher from Lexington, Ky. went 8-0 this year with a 1.63 ERA. Arthur finishes ranked 10th in innings pitched per game and 15th in ERA nationally. His win-loss percentage ties him for best in a season at Georgetown with Scott Sizemore (1986).

"Tyler is very deserving. He is a great pitcher that set the bar high at the start of every weekend this year," Baumfeld said. "I'm excited to have him coming back and looking forward to what his senior year holds."

Arthur is 25-6 through three years with 204 strikeouts and just 68 walks.

National champion Cumberland University had three on the three teams – Sam Lind (First team), Ricky Coleman (Second Team) and Chris Hall (Second Team), while Lindsey Wilson's Mitchell Osnowitz (Second Team) also made the list.
