NOLA NAMED MVP OF SEC TOURNAMENT
2009 Danville Dan, Austin Nola, has been named MVP of this year's SEC Tournament. The sophomore from Baton Rouge batted .457 (7-for-16) with a triple, three doubles, and four RBI. It was an honor 2009 Danville Dan, Mikie Mahtook, received in last year's SEC Tournament. Both Nola and Mahtook were named to the 2010 SEC All-Tournament Team.
LSU won the tournament, defeating Alabama 4-3 in 11 innings. Two other Dans (both 2010) also had an outstanding tournament. In the championship game, the Tigers got out to an early lead when Alex Edward came across the plate on a double by Gaudet. In the 7th inning, Mason Katz "made in incredible sliding catch and doubled-up a runner to end the Alabama threat."
