5/29 Derek Dormanen Earns All-American Honors; 2 Other Cobbers Named to the All-Region Team. 
         | Complete NCAA DIII All-American Details |
Derek Dormanen
Menahga, Minn.
Named to the 2003 NCAA Division III All-American Team 
Jeremy Hinderks
Renville, Minn.
Named to the NCAA DIII Midwest All-Region 2nd Team.
Ryan Hebrink
Sacred Heart, Minn.
Named to the NCAA DIII Midwest All-Region Honorable Mention Team.

Derek Dormanen (Sr., Menahga, Minn./Menahga HS) was named to the Rawlings/American Baseball Coaches Association NCAA Division III All-American Team, and Jeremy Hinderks (Jr., Renville, Minn./Renville County West HS) and Ryan Hebrink (Jr., Sacred Heart, Minn./Renville County West HS) were named to the All-Midwest Region Team. Dormanen earned first team All-Region honors and was named to the All-American third team as a utility player, due to his sharing time at both the pitcher and third base positions. Hinderks earned second team All-Region honors as a pitcher and Hebrink was named to the All-Region Honorable Mention Team as a first baseman.

Dormanen capped off his stellar four-year career by being only the fourth baseball player in the history of Concordia College to earn All-American Honors. Earlier this month, Dormanen was named the Most Valuable Player in the MIAC - he was only the third player in school history to garner that award.

It is the first time that Dormanen has earned All-American status, and the second time in his four-year career at Concordia that he has earned All-Region honors. He was the only player from the MIAC to earn All-American honors. 

After graduating in early May, Dormanen signed a contract to play professional baseball, and is now playing with the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks in the Northern League (a non-affiliated minor league baseball league). 

The team's starting third baseman and top relief pitcher, Dormanen led Concordia with a .366 batting average and set a school record with nine saves. In the team's 20 league games he hit .380 and led the MIAC in saves with eight. He appeared in a league-high 13 games, and his strikeout-to-innings pitched ratio of (1.12) led the league. He also led the league in runs scored with 24 and finished eighth in earned run average with a 2.10 conference mark.

Hinderks had a breakout season in 2003. The MIAC's top starting pitcher, he was named to the MIAC All-Conference team for the first time in his career earlier this month. He finished the regular season with a school-record, nine victories - and his ERA of 2.85 was the lowest of his career. He led the conference in number of starts (8), finished second in total strikeouts (37) and was fifth in innings pitched (41.1). At one time during the year, Hinderks had a streak of 29.2 innings pitched without giving up an earned run. He finished the regular season with 66.1 innings pitched which is only 1/3 of an inning shy of the school record.

Hebrink had a dominating season at the plate and was also named to the 2003 MIAC All-Conference Team. He tied the school record for home runs (9) and RBI's in a season (43), and was the conference leader in both categories. He is also tied for school record in career home runs and will still have one season left to play. His .820 league slugging percentage was almost 50 percentage points higher than the next player. He finished the regular season with a batting average of .336 which was second only to Dormanen.

5/05 Ryan Hebrink Named MIAC Player of the Week.
Concordia junior first baseman Ryan Hebrink (Jr., Sacred Heart, Minn./Renville County West HS) was named the MIAC Player of the Week. He becomes the third Cobber player to earn Player/Pitcher of the Week honors this year. 

Hebrink went 8-for-17 (.471), collected 7 RBI's and was one of the driving forces behind Concordia's playoff clinching victories last week. Concordia went 3-1 on the week in the MIAC, sweeping St. Mary's and splitting with MIAC champion St. Thomas. The Cobbers won three straight games and had a chance to share the MIAC title before losing to the Tommies in the final game of the regular season. 

To go along with his seven RBI's, Hebrink also hit two home runs and had three runs scored. Hebrink leads the MIAC in RBI's and tied the school record for home runs and RBI's in a single season with his output last week. 

Besides the four conference games, the Cobbers also played NCAA Division II North Dakota State in a non-conference game last week, Despite losing to the Bison, Hebrink had two hits in the game - half of Concordia's total offensive output. 

Concordia finished the MIAC regular season with a 15-5 mark which is the best conference record since 1996. The Cobbers finished in third lace and will take on second-place St. Olaf in the first round of the MIAC playoff tournament on Friday, May 9 at 3:30pm.
