Baseball: Riggle selected to PSAC Spring Top 10

Matthew Kifer, Sports Information Director

California University of Pennsylvania senior pitcher Nick Riggle (Pittsburgh, Pa./Keystone Oaks) was selected to the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Spring Top 10 on Tuesday afternoon announced the league office.

The PSAC Top 10 Awards, which are selected by the league’s sports information directors, recognizes student-athletes who have achieved a minimum 3.50 cumulative grade-point average (GPA). The sports eligible for consider for the Spring Top 10 Awards are baseball, men’s and women’s golf, lacrosse, softball, men’s and women’s tennis and men’s and women’s outdoor track & field.

Riggle posted a 2-0 record with a 3.72 ERA in four starts during the shortened 2020 season. He earned the victory in his initial two starts of the year and tossed at least 4.0 innings in every start. Riggle was on pace to eclipse 200 career innings pitched and was also within reach of becoming the program’s sixth pitcher with at least 20 victories. The 6-foot-2, right-handed pitcher was an All-PSAC West Second-Team selection in 2019 following a breakout campaign.

A native of Pittsburgh, Riggle recently completed his bachelor’s degree in business administration with a minor in accounting while holding a 3.89 cumulative GPA. He is the first Cal U baseball player since 2015 to be selected to the PSAC Top 10. He also was recently named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District Team for a consecutive year.

All Top 10 Award winners from each season – fall, winter, spring – are eligible for the PSAC Pete Nevins Scholar-Athlete of the Year Awards, which are given to one male and one female candidate.
