2010 Season - Hoffman, Schmidt named all-CCIW in baseball

Dave Hoffman led the Vikings in hitting with a .424 average and was named first team all-conference in the CCIW.

Augustanajunior Dave Hoffman (Cary-Grove HS, Fox River Grove, Ill.) and freshman Kurt Schmidt (Grayslake Central HS, Grayslake, Ill.) have been named to the 2010 College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin all-conference baseball team. Hoffman was a first team selection as an infielder and Schmidt garnered an infield spot on the second team.

Hoffman played at third and first base before settling in at second late in the season. He was the Vikings’ leading hitter with a .424 average, tied for the team lead in homers with three and drove in a team-best 37 runs as well. In addition, he led the Vikings in several other categories, including games (40), starts (40), at-bats (170), hits (72), doubles (15), total bases (96), slugging (.565) and on-base percentage (.472). In CCIW play, Hoffman hit .436, which was third in the conference. He was also tied for second in the league in hits (41) and fourth in total bases (58).

Schmidt was a fixture at shortstop for coach Greg Wallace from day one. He played in all 40 contests, starting 39, including the first 28 of the season. He was one of just two freshmen—and the only first-year position player—on this year’s all-conference team. He led the Vikings with 45 runs scored and ranked second in batting average (.364), triples (tied with two), on-base percentage (.433) and total bases (76); and third in home runs (tied with two), RBI (29) and stolen bases (five). Schmidt also finished the season with a string of 12 consecutive errorless games.

North Central catcher Michael Corrigan was named the CCIW’s Player of the Year. Illinois Wesleyan’s Jason Pankau and North Park’s Peter Sparacino shared the Pitcher of the Year award and John Fitzgerald of regular season champion North Central was the conference’s Coach of the Year.
