AUGUSTA, GA – Kenny Bellavance earned himself PBC Preseason All-Conference honors on Thursday afternoon as the Peach Belt released its 2012 team.

The junior from Stone Mountain, Georgia, earned PBC First-Team All-Conference last season after starting and playing in all 54 games for the Saints.

Bellavance batted .317 last season and led North Georgia in hits with 71. He also had seven doubles and 35 RBIs.

With 23 multi-hit games during the 2011 season, Bellavance was one of only two non-senior players selected to the 2012 team.

After starting in centerfield the past two season for head coach Tom Cantrell, Bellavance hopes to lead the Saints to a successful 2012 campaign.

The Peach Belt will announce the preseason poll tomorrow afternoon.

The 2012 baseball season starts on February 3, when they partake in Valdosta State Wintersville Kickoff Classic against Saint Leo.
