The Master’s College 2012-13 athletics schedule officially concluded Tuesday when the Mustangs baseball squad finished the best season in program history in an elimination game at the 2013 NAIA Baseball World Series.

The Mustangs fell 3-2 in the bottom of the ninth inning in a heartbreaking loss against Lewis-Clark State on Tuesday.

In their first NAIA World Series appearance since 2000, the Mustangs kicked things off May 24 when the team erased an early deficit to record a 4-3 victory over Northwood of Texas.

The Mustangs played again on Memorial Day but, despite a late rally, fell 7-6 to the eventual World Series champions: Faulkner of Alabama.

TMC then fell in its final game of the season against the Lewis-Clark State Warriors the next day.

While a championship eluded the Mustangs this year, team members did not go home empty-handed.

James Scott, Cody Harris and Daniel Sheaffer were among 266 baseball players to be named 2013 NAIA Scholar-Athletes on Thursday.

On Friday, Sam Robison was named on the 2013 NAIA Baseball World Series All-Tournament Team.

Robison played in all 61 games during the Mustangs’ 2013 campaign, hitting .278, collecting 57 hits and scoring 30 runs. In the field, the sophomore second basemen set a single-season school record with 190 assists and participated in a team-high 49 double plays.

The Mustangs’ cavalcade of accolades comes on the heels of a first-place finish in the Golden State Athletic Conference and a No. 7 ranking in the NAIA. And while the 2013 season may be over, a 44-17 record that included a GSAC Tournament championship and an NAIA World Series Opening Round tournament championship has laid a strong foundation for the Mustangs’ 2014 campaign.

Expectations are high as the squad looks toward next season, because although the team has said goodbye to five seniors, Coach Monte Brooks has already secured a slew of fresh talent.
