S&T’s baseball team also reached post-season play, capturing the GLVC West Division championship and landing a spot in the NCAA’s Midwest Region. At the regional tournament, the Miners — who posted a 30-19 record, the best in school history — opened play by shutting out defending national champion Southern Indiana behind a five-hitter from Zack Gronek, a senior in mechanical engineering. The lefthander earned run average, earning first-team All-GLVC and second-team all-region honors for the season.

The Miner football team signed 24 newcomers to the team during the National Letter of Intent period, including running back Jonny Canhos, who rushed for better than 3,000 yards at Rolla High School and Reed Brown, a quarterback who threw for better than 8,500 yards in his high school career in Rogers, Ark. The 2011 recruiting class also includes five players from the junior college ranks.
Lady Miner softball player Kristen Drage, a senior in civil engineering, broke the S&T career record for runs batted in, finishing with 113, which broke the previous mark of 111 that was established by Emily Tucker, EMgt’09. Drage, who earned All-America honors a year ago, was among three Lady Miners to earn All-GLVC honors following the season along with catcher Kaylea Smith, a junior in architectural engineering, and designated player Kassi Deibert, a graduate student in business administration.
