Baseball: JHU senior Lynch named conference player of the year

First baseman batted .391 with 49 RBIs for 36-8 Blue Jays

Senior first baseman Jeff Lynch has been named Centennial Conference Player of the Year, and six members of the Johns Hopkins baseball team were voted All-Centennial Conference.

Lynch batted a team-best .391 for the Blue Jays and led the conference in RBIs (49), doubles (24) and slugging percentage (.671). He is the 10th player in JHU history to receive the conference's top honor and the first since Dave Kahn in 2010.

Lynch was joined on the first team by senior catcher Ryan Zakszeski and junior pitcher Tyler Goldstein. Seniors Kyle Neverman and Chris Wilhelm were named to the second team, and sophomore pitcher Jacob Enterlin earned honorable mention recognition.

The NCAA Division III baseball regional brackets will be released on Monday at 10 a.m. Johns Hopkins, which finished the season with a 36-8 record but did not win the conference tournament and the automatic NCAA bid that goes with it, hopes to become the first team in Centennial Conference history to receive an at-large bid.
