Komine named to all-America second team

Advertiser Staff

Nebraska junior pitcher Shane Komine of Honolulu yesterday was named second-team all-America by The Sporting News.

Komine, a 1998 Kalani High graduate, was a first-team all-America selection on five teams, including The Sporting News, last season.

Komine was a 19th-round selection of the St. Louis Cardinals in the major-league free-agent draft on June 5, but he has not announced whether he will sign a professional contract or return to Nebraska for his senior year.

He led the Cornhuskers to their first College World Series this season, winning 14 straight games until he was beaten by Cal State-Fullerton in the College World Series opener.

Komine finished with a 14-2 record and 3.35 earned-run average in 131 1/3 innings. Komine led the Big 12 Conference in strikeouts with 159 and was named Big 12 Pitcher of the Year for the second straight season.

He holds every major school pitching record, including wins (31), strikeouts (395) and innings pitched (334 1/3). Komine's three-year record is 31-8 with a 2.99 ERA.
