Release: June 20, 2012
FARGO, N.D. - North Dakota State center fielder Tim Colwell was named to the All-Midwest Region second team Wednesday, June 20, by a vote of the American Baseball Coaches Association. He is NDSU's first all-region pick at the Division I level.
Colwell, a sophomore from Shoreview, Minn., led North Dakota State with a .381 batting average, 244 at-bats, 93 hits, 62 runs, nine triples, 12 stolen bases, 25 walks, a .438 on-base percentage and a .512 slugging percentage.
In the NCAA Division I statistics through Tuesday, June 19, Colwell ranked 32nd in batting average, 25th in runs scored, 16th in total hits, and third in triples. He led The Summit League in all four categories.
Colwell had a 34-game on-base streak during the 2012 season including a 13-game hitting streak. He twice tied the NDSU single-game record with five hits at Northern Colorado and at Western Illinois.
Colwell was an All-Summit League first team pick and a Capital One Academic All-America® first team selection. He hit 10-for-18 (.556) with two walks and four runs scored in four Summit League tournament games and was named to the all-tournament team.
He is the first all-region pick for NDSU since 2004 when catcher Chris Baso, shortstop Jeremiah Piepkorn and right-handed pitcher Neil Wagner were selected to the ABCA All-Central Region squad in Division II.
