NSU outfielder named to MIAA 1st team

The Northeastern State baseball team had five members of the squad named to the all-conference teams, the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association announced Thursday.

Highlighting the list was junior outfielder Cody Robinson, who was named to the All-MIAA First Team. He became the first player from NSU since Kyle Davidson in 2009 to be named to a first-team all-conference squad.

The first-year transfer belted 16 home runs and drove in 56 runs. He is currently second in the country in homers, seventh in RBI, 14th in slugging percentage (.674) and 18th in total bases (116).

His battery mate, fellow junior outfielder Kyle Singleton, was named to the honorable mention squad.

Singleton, also a first-year transfer, tied Robinson with 16 home runs this season and drove in two more runs, making them by far the deadliest 1-2 punch in the nation with a combined 32 round-trippers and 114 RBI. Singleton is currently tied for second in the NCAA in homers with Robinson and is sixth in runs batted in.

Senior pitcher Trevor Walch landed on the All-MIAA Second Team. He began the season as a starting pitcher but was moved to the bullpen early in the year and dominated in a reserve role.

Walch made 18 relief appearances and posted a 0.95 earned-run average in 40.2 innings pitched. He only allowed a run in three of those efforts and finished the season ninth in the nation with 10 saves. Even as a reliever, he still managed to finish third in the MIAA with 72 strikeouts.

Senior shortstop Kegan Knight and sophomore catcher David Weber were also named All-MIAA Honorable Mention. The duo was 1-2 on the team in batting average, with Knight leading the way at .351 and Weber finishing at .347.

Knight was the only player on the team to start all 51 games, and he also led NSU with 65 hits, 17 doubles and two triples. He also hit six homers, posted 41 RBI and scored 40 runs.

Weber played in all but one game, and he finished the year with 60 hits, 41 runs scored, 10 doubles, two triples, two homers, and 26 RBI.

The RiverHawks (28-23) finished the 2013 campaign with their most wins since 2002, and the team made their first trip to a postseason tournament since 2000.
