May 20 - GREENVILLE, Pa. – After closing his fine senior season with 15 consecutive scoreless innings on the mound, Bethany College senior Brad Kubis (Aliquippa, Pa./Hopewell) recently earned Second Team All-PAC recognition from the coaches of the conference.
Kubis’ fourth career all-conference award comes as a pitcher, as he posted a 3-1 record and 2.25 ERA in his final year. The Bison closer for his first three campaigns and most of his senior year, he picked up three saves this season to run his career total to 27, the most in Bethany program history.
The right-hander then made his first career start for a weary BC staff on April 27 at Geneva, where he threw eight shutout innings and struck out nine in a game Bethany would eventually lose 1-0 in 13 innings. Then on May 4 in a season-ending doubleheader at eventual AMCC champion Penn State Behrend, Kubis scattered seven hits and struck out eight in a 1-0 victory over the Lions to run his scoreless innings streak to 15.
In addition to his excellent year on the mound, Kubis also completed a stellar career with the bat. He hit .268 with three doubles, 10 RBI and 14 runs scored. His biggest day with the stick came in an April 26th match-up with Geneva when he was 4-for-5, which was his third career four-hit game as a Bison.
Kubis finished his career with four All-PAC honors, two All-Region accolades and was a 2010 D3Baseball.com All-American and he leaves Bethany with his name high up in numerous statistical categories. His 188 career hits and 106 RBI place him third all-time at the school and he is 11th in career batting average at .363. Also a versatile player defensively, having played every infield position except second base, his 229 career assists put him fifth all-time.
On the mound, Kubis not only leaves with the program’s all-time saves record, but he is also second in career appearances with 52 and third in ERA at 2.57.
Brad, who graduated May 18th with a bachelor’s degree in biology, is the son of Robert & Terri Kubis of Aliquippa, Pa.
