GREENWOOD – After an impressive freshman campaign on the diamond, Lander sophomore Colton Yeager was named to the preseason All-Peach Belt Conference team, the league announced Wednesday. 
 
As a freshman in 2017, Yeager recorded a .327 batting average, leading the Bearcats with 74 hits. The Jacksonville, Fla., native finished the season with 14 doubles, two home runs and 31 RBI while making 50 starts. The second baseman also stole three bases and posted a .957 fielding percentage. Yeager spent the offseason playing summer ball in the Collegiate Leage of the Palm Beaches for the Palm Beach Snowbirds, where he batted .378 with eight doubles and 17 RBI and was named to the CLPB All-Star game. 
 
The Bearcats begin the season on Feb. 3 with a home doubleheader against Mount Olive.
