NEW KENSINGTON, Pa. - The United States Collegiate Athletic Association named sophomore Jake Stackiewicz as a Second Team all-American during the organization's end-of the year banquet on Sunday, May 13.
Stackiewicz is the first baseball player in Penn State New Kensington history to be named an all-American.
Stackiewicz's all-American honors cap off a successful 2018 campaign for the outfielder and pitcher. Last week, he earned Penn State University Athletic Conference honorable mention after leading the league in slugging percentage with a .803 mark.
Among players in the USCAA, Stackiewicz ranks third in slugging percentage, third in triples (4), and sixth in batting average (.459). He led New Kensington in slugging percentage, batting average, hits (28), RBI (15), doubles (10), and triples. As a pitcher, he also led the team in strikeouts.
In addition to his all-American honors, the USCAA also included Stackiewicz on the National All-Academic Team.
