The NEIBA Division I All-New England teams were released on Tuesday and freshman Mason Feole was named both the Rookie of the Year and one of the three starting pitchers on the second team.

The Wakefield, Rhode Island native compiled a 7-4 record in 2017 to go along with a 3.38 ERA. He started 14 games and had 15 appearances overall, starting in three of the Huskies’ four shutouts this year.

Feole struck out 75 batters to 30 walks in 82 2/3 innings and allowed batters to hit .254 against him. This summer, he will pitch for the Wareham Gatemen in the Cape Cod League during summer 2017.

Reliever John Russell and starting pitchers Tim Cate and Wills Montgomerie were also named to All-New England teams.

Russell made the first team after he burst onto the scene as the Huskies’ closer in 2017. Opposing batters hit .196 against him this season as he notched 14 saves, beating out Kevin Vance’s single-season program record. Russell appeared out of the bullpen 23 times, pitching 38 innings while striking out 66 batters to 19 walks and 27 hits.

Cate and Montgomerie were both on the third team.

Cate had a 4-3 record in 12 starts with a 3.33 ERA, finishing second on the team with 102 strikeouts. He will pitch for the Bourne Braves of the Cape Cod League this summer.

Montgomerie made 15 appearances, all starts. He had an ERA of 3.73 and a record of 6-3 while leading the team with 116 strikeouts.
