Lynd named to All-New England Div. 3 baseball team
|Noah Lynd ’11 added All-New England honors to his All-NESCAC award from a week ago.|
LEWISTON, Maine — Bates College junior Noah Lynd received his second postseason honor on Tuesday, as the New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association named him to the 2010 NEIBA All-New England Division 3 Third Team.
Among the many outstanding seasons produced by Bates players this season, Lynd (Meriden, N.H.) stood out, becoming the first Bobcat ever to reach double digits in home runs by blasting a conference-best 15 round-trippers on the year, to go with a .398 batting average, 44 RBIs and a .912 slugging percentage. Lynd meanwhile showed dramatic improvement from a season ago, when he slugged .337 with one homer and six RBIs.
Lynd set team single-season records in homers, RBIs, slugging, total bases and extra-base hits. He also reached base at an outstanding .517 clip.
Lynd also proved to be a valuable contributor to the Bates pitching staff, going 2-0 with a 3.50 earned run average in five appearances, including four starts.
Last week Lynd was named First Team All-NESCAC, joining four teammates — senior Tom Beaton (West Newbury, Mass.), junior Chris Burke (North Andover, Mass.), junior Ryan Heide (Medfield, Mass.) and junior Jake Simon (Waterford, Conn.) — on the all-conference team.
