Dordt College baseball team looks to the future
Michelle Gruppen ('02)
The Dordt College baseball team battled through a difficult season, posting a record of 4-24 in
their inaugural season in the Great Plains Athletic Conference. In joining a more competitive
conference, the Dordt baseball team won fewer games than in previous years.
Although Dordt finished last in the conference with a record of 3-17, the baseball team did have some players that received Honorable Mention honors in the conference. Scott Van Andel, shortstop, batted .290 this season and had a fielding percentage of .943. Michael De Jong, a pitcher, had an ERA of 4.06, 30 strike outs, and threw three of Dordt's four wins this season.
Dordt says good-bye to only two seniors on the team: Ryan Lefever (pitcher and firstbaseman) and Tim Covey (outfield).
