Gronek earns post-season honors

Zack Gronek, who set a school record with his 10 wins on the mound this season for the S&T baseball squad, was named to the American Baseball Coaches Association’s all-Midwest region second team for the 2011 season.


A junior in mechanical engineering, Gronek posted a record of 10-1 and finished with a 2.38 earned run average. Gronek’s ERA was the fifth-lowest single-season mark in school history and ranked fifth in the Great Lakes Valley Conference in 2011. Gronek also threw a record 87 innings during the season and struck out 64 hitters against just nine walks, setting another mark for fewest walks per nine innings at 0.93.
Gronek was a first-team selection to the All-GLVC team and posted a record of 6-1 with a 2.36 ERA during the conference season. He finished the season with six complete games and two shutouts, including a five-hit blanking of defending NCAA Division II champion Southern Indiana in the opening game of the NCAA Midwest Regional tournament. The Miners made their first appearance in the NCAA Division II Tournament in 39 years in 2011.
