Matt Holland Louisville Slugger All-American

Matt Holland of Texas A&M-Corpus Christi has become the first player in school history to be named a Louisville Slugger NCAA Division I All-American.

Holland, who graduated from Marion High School in 2006, hit .391 with 10 homers and 53 RBIs for Texas A&M-Corpus Christi as a senior. He was named a third team All-American.

"We couldn't be more thrilled for Matt Holland to have earned this honor," Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Coach Scott Malone said. "As impressive as his performance on the field was this season, his presence as a leader and a model student-athlete were even more noteworthy.

"He is the perfect example of what an Islander should be, and we are glad that he was recognized for his record-setting season."

Holland, a left-handed hitting outfielder, tied the school record with 20 doubles and set a school record with 149 total bases. He finished the season with a 16-game hitting streak and was named first team all-Southland Conference.

Texas A&M-Corpus Christi finished 37-24, setting a school record for victories.
