SEATTLE - Junior third baseman Michael Done won three of six postseason awards presented at today's Washington baseball banquet at the Don James Center. All six awards given out at the banquet were voted on by the players.
Done, a switch-hitter from Littleton, Colo., picked up the Dr. William Hutchinson MVP Award, the J. Wilson Gaw Top Hitter Award and the team's Golden Glove Award.
Done batted .342 with 15 doubles, a team-high seven home runs and 36 runs batted in during the 2001 season. He also scored 37 runs, second on the team, and stole six bases in nine attempts.
Senior Marc Rittenhouse, a second baseman from Bellevue, Wash., was honored with the team's Most Inspirational Award. Rittenhouse, who missed nearly half the season due to thumb surgery, hit .375 in his 28 starts.
Junior Shawn Kohn, a right-hander from Woodinville, Wash., was selected as the team's Top Pitcher Award winner. Kohn, who moved from the bullpen to become the Huskies' No. 1 starter midway through the season, finished the year with a 6-2 record and a 2.57 earned run average. He allowed only 60 hits in 80.2 innings while walking only 15 and striking out 65.
Freshmen Jeremiah Porter and John Otness shared honors for the Jerry Thornton Unsung Hero Award. Porter, an outfielder from Vancouver, Wash., played sparingly, but managed to recover from off-season back surgery to remain on the team. Otness, an infielder from Tacoma, Wash., played in Rittenhouse's absence during the middle of the season and batted .301 in 26 starts.
Rittenhouse and senior pitcher Jeff Carlsen, from Poulsbo, Wash., were also both honored as the team's captains for the 2001 season.
