BEREA, OHIO -- Baldwin Wallace University sophomore centerfielder Nolan Neuschaefer (Elyria/ Senior) has been named to the 2011 All-Ohio Athletic Conference baseball team. Neuschaefer was tabbed as an honorable mention selection.

“We are pleased that Nolan received this recognition from the coaches in the Ohio Athletic Conference,” said first-year Head Coach Brian Harrison. “Nolan is one of a number of exciting young men who are a part of our baseball program. We all learned a great deal together this year."
“Nolan has outstanding bat control that is aided by his ability to run well, both in center field and on the base paths,” continued Harrison. “He is deserving of his honor. We look forward to welcome Nolan back next fall as a team leader.”
