Will Cioffi, a graduate and current SCAD Savannah junior majoring in architecture, was among 50 of the best players in The Sun Conference selected to represent their schools at the annual league All-Star game Jan. 21, the unofficial start of the 2012 Sun Conference baseball season.
All 10 baseball-sponsoring league schools had representatives at the game, a showcase for scouts and fans alike to get a look at one of the premier baseball conferences in the NAIA as well as the top junior and senior players from each school.
Cioffi joined four SCAD teammates, all seniors, nominated by their coaches to participate. In two at-bats, Cioffi, an outfielder, went 1-1 with a single and a walk.
The conference was split into North and South teams for the event on the campus of Webber International University, Babson Park, Fla. Each team carried 25 players on their rosters, with the North team consisting of players from Embry-Riddle, SCAD Savannah, Southeastern, USC Beaufort and Warner. The South was made up of Ave Maria, Florida Memorial, Northwood, St. Thomas and Webber International.
The North won with a 4-0 shutout victory over the host South in the annual contest.
