Another First For Utah Baseball As Bryson Van Sickle Earns Pitcher Of The Year

May 21, 2024, 10:35 AM

SALT LAKE CITY –ย 2024 has brought forth several firsts and records for Utah baseball and they added one more ahead of their first Pac-12 Tournament game against USC after Bryson Van Sickle was named the Pac-12 Pitcher of the Year.

Van Sickle’s recognition is the first individual award the Utes have brought home in the Pac-12 era and the first since CJ Cron earned Mountain West Player of the Year in 2011.

Van Sickle also earned a spot on the All-Conference Team and was joined by three other teammates (infielder Core Jackson, outfielder Kai Roberts, and reliever Micah Ashman) as first-teamers. The Utes’ four first-team selections ties for the most with the 2016 year in the Pac-12 Era.

Additionally, Utah baseball had outfielder TJ Clarkson named as an honorable mention.

The Utes are currently in Scottsdale, Arizona preparing for their first game of the Pac-12 Tournament against the USC Trojans which takes place at 3:30 pm MT on May 21 on Pac-12 Networks.

Utah will then return to the field at least one more time on Wednesday, May 22. That game will be against the Oregon Ducks, also at 3:30 pm MT and on Pac-12 Networks.

If the Utes handle their business the next two days, they will have an opportunity to advance to the semifinals on Friday, May 24.
