CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – On the heels of All-Ivy League nods, Ethan Ferreira, Jake McGuiggan and Matt Timoney picked up All-New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association, the NEIBA announced Wednesday. Ferreira was named to the First Team, while McGuiggan and Timoney drew Second and Third Team honors, respectively.
Ferreira, a product of Reheboth, Massachusetts, had his best season ever as a member of the Crimson. The co-captain belted out a program-record 21-game hit streak, slashing .361/.425/.594 in 2015. He scored 30 runs and drove in 35 RBI with 23 extra-base hits. For his efforts on and off the field, Ferreira earned Capital One Academic All-District honors as well.
Though McGuiggan missed nine games due to injury down the stretch, he hit .347/.362/.504 with eight doubles, a triple and three home runs, driving in 26 RBI and scoring 23 times. Splitting time between first and second base, McGuiggan fielded .958 with 72 putouts and 65 assists in 143 chances, helping to turn 16 double plays. Perhaps the most memorable moment was belting a home run over the Green Monster at Fenway Park in the Beanpot Consolation game versus Northeastern.
Timoney was by far the ace of the staff this season, giving Harvard six wins with him on the mound (6-1). The Glenside, Pennsylvania, native owned a career-best 3.91 ERA, making nine appearances. He struck out 40 in 50.2 innings of work for a respectable 7.11 strikeouts per game average.
