(St. Paul)-- Three Concordia baseball players were named to the MIAC All-Conference team and senior standout Derek Dormanen (Sr., Menahga, Minn./Menahga HS) was named the MIAC Player of the Year. Dormanen was joined by Ryan Hebrink (Jr., Sacred Heart, Minn./Renville County West HS) and Jeremy Hinderks (Jr., Renville, Minn./Renville County West HS) on the all-conference team. Senior  Ben Kvidt (Sr., Detroit Lakes, Minn./Detroit Lakes HS)  was named to the MIAC All-Conference Honorable Mention Team. The quartet helped Concordia to a third place finish in the MIAC and 24 overall victories during the regular season. It is the most victories in a single year for a Concordia squad since the 1995 season when the Cobbers went 30-8.

It is the third straight year that Dormanen has earned all-conference honors and the first postseason awards for Hebrink, Hinderks and Kvidt. Besides the 24 overall victories, Concordia finished with 15 league wins, the most since the 1996 season. The third place finish in the league marks the ninth time in the past 11 seasons that the Cobbers have finished in the top half of the MIAC. They will be making their second appearance in the MIAC postseason tournament in the past three years.

Dormanen capped off his stellar four-year career by being only the third Concordia player to earn Player of the Year honors. Chris Coste, '95, and Tim Anderson, '85, were the only other two players from Concordia to receive the prestigious award.

The team's starting third baseman and top relief pitcher, Dormanen led Concordia with a .366 batting average and set a school record with nine saves. In the team's 20 league games he hit .380 and led the MIAC in saves with eight. He appeared in a league-high 13 games, and his strikeout-to-innings pitched ratio of (1.12) led the league. He also led the league in runs scored with 24 and finished eighth in earned run average with a 2.10 conference mark.

Hebrink had a dominating season at the plate. He tied the school record for home runs (9) and RBI's in a season (43), and was the conference leader in both categories. He is also tied for school record in career home runs and will still have one season left to play. His .820 league slugging percentage was almost 50 percentage points higher than the next player. He finished the regular season with a batting average of .336 which was second only to Dormanen. Hebrink earned Player of the Week honors in the MIAC last week as he helped the Cobbers clinch a spot in the league playoffs.

The MIAC's top starting pitcher, Hinderks had a breakout season. He finished the regular season with a school-record, nine victories - and his ERA of 2.85 was the lowest of his career. He collected six wins in the conference and beat all three of the teams that are in the MIAC playoffs. He led the conference in number of starts (8), finished second in total strikeouts (37) and was fifth in innings pitched (41.1). At one time during the year, Hinderks had a streak of 29.2 innings pitched without giving up an earned run. He finished the regular season with 66.1 innings pitched which is only 1/3 of an inning shy of the school record. Like Hebrink, Hinderks also earned Player of the Week honors. He was named the MIAC Pitcher of the Week on April 7. 

While not producing the offensive numbers of Dormanen or Hebrink, Kvidt helped the Cobbers by his leaderhip at the catcher postition. Kvidt did not committ a single error during the regular season and led the conference in fielding percentage. He hit .275 and was second on the team in RBI's (22) and doubles (9). He was third member of the trio of Cobber players that were named the league's player of the week. Kvidt earned his award on April 21 for helping Concordia go 5-0 during a seven-day stretch.
