Andrew Guillotte all slc tourney team

McNeese junior Andrew Guillotte's excellent performance during the 2014 Southland Conference Tournament helped him pick up All-Tournament honors while having helped the Cowboy baseball team overcome all odds and walk out of Conway as the third-best team and a 30-win season.

Guillotte, a first team All-Southland Conference selection, picked up the award which was given out by the league at the conclusion of the championship game, after having batted .467 (7-for-15) in the tournament.

He opened with a 2-for-4 performance in a 4-2 victory over second-seed Nicholls, where he scored twice and had a stolen base.

Following the Cowboys' first loss in the postseason, Guillotte helped keep McNeese alive in an elimination game against third-seed Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.  With the score tied at five runs apiece and one runner on base in the eighth inning, Guillotte belted a solid triple deep into the corner of left field that allowed teammate Connor Lloyd to score all the way from first and give the Cowboys a 6-5 lead and the eventual win to advance deeper into the tournament.

He concluded his season with a 3-for-5 effort with one run and a stolen base in the Cowboys' 8-6 elimination loss to Central Arkansas.

Guillotte finished the season with team-highs in runs (57), hits (78) and doubles (14). He batted a .316 clip with a 20-for-26 effort in stolen bases. He also carried a hit streak of 12 games earlier in the year and reached base in 14 straight contests. The second baseman tied an NCAA Division I record with 10 at-bats in a game while he set or tied two McNeese Baseball program records.

Guillotte became the all-time leader for most at-bats in a season during the week and finished with 247 total at-bats, six more than the previous record holder.

He also climbed into the sixth spot in the career stolen bases category with 56 steals.  He will enter the 2015 season just four stolen bags out of fifth place all-time.

In addition to his success on the field, Guillotte has also succeeded in the classroom as he has obtained a 3.56 GPA in Health Education helping him earn Capital One Academic All-District VI honors.  He was just one of four Southland Conference baseball players to be recognized with the award.
