Tyler McSwain earned All-State honors for the first time following a 9-4 season for the Seahawks on the mound.

WILMINGTON, North Carolina - UNCW standouts Tyler McSwain and Thomas Pope were named All-state by the North Carolina Collegiate Sports Information Directors Association after helping the Seahawks to the NCAA tournament and a 39-23 record.

McSwain posted a career-best season with a 9-4 record and a 3.18 ERA. He earned first-team All-Colonial Athletic Association honors after compiling a 7-1 mark against league opponents. McSwain moved into UNCW's all-time leaders in strikeouts with 239 (sixth) and wins with 22 (eighth).

Pope, meanwhile, picked up where he left off in 2011, leading the team with a .372 batting average and seven triples. Pope, who also earned first-team All-CAA honors, started 58-of-59 games played, scored 49 runs, knocked in 45 and stole 17 bases.

Pope also earned first-team All-ABCA East honors while McSwain was voted to the second team.
