Former Bainbridge High School Bearcats infielder Beau Parker, now with the Georgia Southwestern University Hurricanes in Americus, has been named to the 2011 All-Peach Belt Conference preseason team.

Parker, a junior, played his way into a starting role at second base midway through GSW’s 2010 season.

His March 23 five-for-five performance against Thomas University triggered his solid stretch run.

Parker started 20 games and finished the spring with a .446 batting average, 14 runs batted in and 11 stolen bases in 12 attempts.

He hit .700 in the Peach Belt Conference Tournament, while scoring seven runs and driving in three, as the Hurricanes made a run to the title game. He was named to the All-Tournament team.

He is the son of Brian and Gena Parker of Bainbridge.
