For the second season in a row Christin Stewart has been chosen as a First Team All-SEC selection. This is the first time since Chris Burke in 2000-2001 that a Vol has been a back-to-back First Team selection. Stewart put together a solid season where he led the Vols in basically every offensive category besides batting average (3rd) and stolen bases.
Stewart started in all 49 games this season, where he hit .318 with 47 RBIs, 15 home runs, 39 runs scored, and four stolen bases. He is the first Volunteer to hit double digit home runs or 40 RBIs since 2010. Stewart leads the SEC in hit by pitches (15), is second in Slugging Percentage (.647), third in home runs, fifth in on base percentage (.452), eleventh in RBIs and total bases, and tied for first with a perfect fielding percentage. He set new career highs in slugging percentage, on base percentage, home runs, and RBIs in what will more than likely be his final season in Knoxville.
Stewart will next be in action tomorrow night at around 8:30 p.m. as he and the Vols take on SEC Player of the Year Andrew Benintendi and the Arkansas Razorbacks.
