All-America Baseball Distinction for Rushing

Senior designated hitter Robbie Rushing became the first Central baseball player in 44 years to receive all-America recognition.

Rushing was a second-team choice after hitting .410 and driving in 46 runs. His 23 doubles broke the school record set by former coach John Edwards in 1970.

He helped spark a spirited stretch run by the Dutch, who posted a 28-16 record and placed second in the Iowa Conference tournament, giving Central 101 wins over the past four seasons.

Senior shortstop Jordan Judkins and senior pitcher Judson McKown joined Rushing on the all-Central Region squad as third-team honorees. McKown was 6-3 with a stingy 1.50 ERA while Judkins hit .379 with 30 RBIs.
