Koeneman Earns Two All-Region Honors

From C-N Sports Information – Carson-Newman senior first baseman Kyle Koeneman has been named to the 2012 Daktronics All-Southeast Region Second Team and the 2012 NCBWA All-Southeast Region Second Team.

Koeneman helped the Eagles to a 28-26 record this season, playing three different positions and finishing the year among the nation’s leaders in a number of categories.

Koeneman finished the season among the nation’s leaders in home runs (20), walks (51), on-base percentage (.548) and slugging percentage (.883).

The 2012 South Atlantic Conference Player of the Year was at his best late in games, hitting game-tying or game-winning home runs in the ninth inning four times. He hit game-winning home runs in wins against North Georgia, Lenoir-Rhyne, and Lander to name a few. Against the Bearcats (Lander), he found out mid-game the NCAA had granted him a fifth-year of eligibility, and came on to hit the game-winning home run in the top of the ninth, and [itched the bottom of the inning for the save.

Koeneman led the Eagles in eight offensive categories (also doubles, runs, RBIs, and total bases) and tied for the team lead with three saves. He was named C-N’s 2011-2012 Eagle Club Male Athlete of the Year earlier this month.
