SPRING 2012: Looney was a staple in the Saints rotation in his first season at Seward, starting 9 games and seeing action in 13 ballgames. He finished the season 5-2 with a pair of saves and was third on the team with 65 innings pitched. He struck out 39 hitters and walked 25 while allowing 61 hits on the year. Looney was a workhorse for Seward as their #4 starter, giving the Saints 6 or more innings in 6 different starts and pitching into the 6th or deeper in his last five starts. He pitched his finest game of the season late in the year in a key win against Hutchinson when he went all 9 innings of a 9-1 Seward win over the Dragons, striking out a career best 8 and allowing just 4 hits and 1 runs in a game that ultimately gave the Saints the top spot for the Region VI Tournament.
