SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Two members of UC Santa Barbara's 2007 baseball recruiting class have recently been accorded regional, and in on case national, recognition.

Shortstop Gunnar Terhune (Saint Augustine HS/El Cajon, Calif.) and left handed pitcher Mario Hollands (El Cerrito HS/El Cerrito, Calif.) were each listed among the 2006 High School Top 400 by Baseball America. Terhune was ranked 306th in the nation by the respected baseball publication, while Hollands was listed 339th.

Hollands has also been ranked as the 59th top prospect in talent-rich California and Terhune has been picked 79th.

Finally, Hollands was listed among the "Other Prep Seniors To Watch" in the recently released Street & Smith's 2006 Baseball preview magazine.
