TUCSON, Arizona -

The post season awards continue to roll in for Oklahoma State pitcher Andrew Heaney as Thursday he was named a Louisville Slugger Division 1 First-Team All-American.

He is one of six starting pitchers on the 2012 Louisville Slugger first team, which is selected by the staff of Collegiate Baseball.

The lefty from Oklahoma City is the first OSU player to earn first-team All-American honors since 2006 when Tyler Mach received the same honors.

In 15 starts this season, Heaney was 8-2 with a 1.60 ERA. He tossed six complete games, including three shutouts, and racked up an NCAA-leading140 strikeouts in 118.1 innings of work. Opponents hit just .180 against him.

Heaney recorded eight or more strikeouts in 12 of his 15 appearances. He was the first OSU pitcher to reach 100 strikeouts in a season since Matt Smith racked up 114 in 2000, and his 140 punchouts were the fifth most in a single season in OSU history.

Heaney's three shutouts were one shy of the Big 12 single-season record and are fifth on OSU's career list. Among Big 12 pitchers in 2012, Heaney ranks first in ERA, innings pitched, strikeouts, shutouts, complete games and opponent batting average.

After a stellar season for the Cowboys, Heaney was also named the Big 12 Pitcher of the Year and to the All-Big 12 First Team. In addition he is a finalist for the College Baseball Hall of Fame National Pitcher of the Year and a semifinalist for both the Golden Spikes Award and the Dick Howser Trophy.
