Baseball

• Engineers honored
— Rose-Hulman placed three players on the all-Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference team, according to results released by the league this week.

Sophomore Kody Alayon earned first-team all-conference honors, while senior Hank Akard and sophomore Caleb Kissel claimed second-team accolades.

Two players also received honorable mention all-conference honors for their efforts this spring. Junior right fielder Josh Hoeing and freshman catcher Zach Trusk received the recognition.

Alayon led the Engineers in batting average at .424 this season with 53 hits, 10 doubles and 15 stolen bases. He was named HCAC tournament’s Most Valuable Player last weekend after a performance that helped Rose finish 3-0 on the weekend to advance to the NCAA Division III tournament for the first time since 2010. The effort has also helped Alayon move into 10th place on Rose-Hulman’s career batting average list at .375.

Akard batted .329 this season with team-highs of 56 hits, four home runs, 32 runs batted in and a school record 22 stolen bases. The center fielder holds Rose’s career school record with 51 stolen bases and ranks in the career top 10 all-time in hits (eighth at 178) and pitching saves (second with 10).

Kissel ranked third on the Engineers in batting average at .327 with 52 hits, seven doubles, 33 runs scored and 30 runs batted in. His most crucial hit of the season was a three-run, bases-loaded double to snap a 5-5 tie in the ninth inning against Manchester in the HCAC semifinal round, which propelled the Engineers into the title game.

Hoeing batted .317 with eight doubles and five triples as the only Engineer to start all 42 games this season. Trusk hit .310 with a .448 on-base average in his first year behind the plate.

Golf

• Park honored — Rose-Hulman sophomore Sanders Park has earned a spot on the NCAA Division III Ping All-Great Lakes Region Team, according to results released by the Golf Coaches Association of America.

Park set a single-season school record with a stroke average of 74.40 in 2013-14 and holds Rose’s career scoring average record at 74.70. He also claimed the individual Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference men’s championship earlier this month.

Park won two events, had four top-five finishes and placed in the top 10 of all 10 events he competed in as a sophomore this past fall. He becomes the first Rose-Hulman golfer in more than a decade to earn all-region honors.

The Engineers finished fourth as a team in the HCAC championships in a season that included single-round and single-match team scoring records.
