Buerkle big crop

Baseball player Ben Buerkle led the Cardinals to a 24-12 overall record this spring—their most wins in 20 years—and in the process collected a host of post-season honors. The sophomore from Roseville, Minn. was named Second-Team ABCA/Rawlings All-American, Third-Team D3baseball.com All-American, and Third-Team Capital One Academic All American, along with all-conference and all-region honors.

Other student-athletes standing out in the spring season included track and field’s Morris Dennis, who won the conference title in the 400m dash and qualified for the NCAA national meet; and Tyler Kircher, who won the conference title in the hammer throw.
