Complete Daktronics All-Region Release
– University of Southern Indiana senior right-handed pitcher Jeremy Kehrt
(Plainfield, Indiana) was named Daktronics first team All-North Central Region in a vote of the sports information directors. USI junior right-handed closer Shaun Larsen
(Tell City, Indiana) and junior second baseman Josh Huebner
(Evansville, Indiana) also were honored by being voted onto the second team.
Kehrt, who also was a first team All-GLVC selection, led the Screaming Eagles with an 8-3 record and a 6-1 mark in the GLVC. His eight victories tied a USI singles-season record for wins. The senior also was second on the team with 64 strikeouts.
Larsen earns All-Region honors with a record-breaking performance in his first season at USI. He set the USI single-season and career records for saves with 17, 10 coming in conference competition. The junior right-hander, who was a first team All-GLVC relief pitcher, also finished the year 4-1 with a 3.57 ERA.
Huebner finished the year as USI's top hitter, sporting a .396 batting average, 47 runs scored, 84 hits, and 32 stolen bases. The first team All-GLVC utility player also tied for second on the squad with 12 doubles and three triples, while tying for fourth with 31 RBIs.
The Screaming Eagles finished the season with a 36-20 overall record and the GLVC West Division championship with a 24-7 mark. The GLVC regular season title was USI's first since the 1993 season.
The 36-victories are tied for third all-time at USI for wins in a regular season. The Eagles had a team-best 38 regular season wins during 1992 and 1993, while reaching 36 victories during last year's regular schedule.
