Lhotka Named First Team All-NEWMAC

NEW LONDON, Conn. – Senior Jeremy Lhotka has been named to the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) All-conference first team.

Lhotka, the Bears catcher, became the first Coast Guard player since 2006 to hit over .400 as he finished the season with a .415 batting average which was second best in the NEWMAC this season and seventh best in a single-season at the Academy.

He finished the year with 36 RBI's the second most in a single season and his 49 hits this year are tied for the second most in a single-season while his 13 doubles are the second in a season in program history. Lhotka also led the Bears with five homers this season.

Lhotka got off to a hot start in Florida, as he had a stretch of 11 straight hits during the trip and carried the momentum throughout the season. He hit safely in 29 of 34 games and had 14 multi-hit games including five games with three or more hits.

He becomes the first Coast Guard player to earn first team honors since current pitching coach Derek Petty was a first team selection in 2013.
