Junior Andrew Jaehnig (Quincy, Mass. / Boston College) was named to the First Team, while freshman Jared Brescia (Brentwood, N.H. / Exeter) was named to the All-Rookie Team.
Jaehnig earns All-Conference honors from the NE10 for the third time in his career, earning Second-Team accolades last season and All-Rookie recognition after his freshman campaign. Jaehnig had a dominant year at the plate for the Hounds, hitting his way to the NE10 batting title while also holding the top average in the East Region after batting a robust .401 on the season. He also owned the top slugging percentage in the conference and ranked third in the East Region with a mark of .637, which was .67 points higher than the runner up in the NE10. Jaehnig also finished second in the NE10 with 16 doubles and 63 hits, while ranking in the top ten in home runs (five), RBI (33), triples (three) and on base percentage (.449) all while recording a .975 fielding percentage behind the plate as the catcher. On the season, Jaehnig tallied 20 multi-hit games and reached base safely in 37 out of the 42 games.
As a rookie, Brescia has stepped right in as the team's starting second baseman and has appeared in all 42 games. He batted .291 on the year and owned a .376 on base percentage which were the third and fourth highest totals on the team, respectively. Brescia also scored 22 runs, registered 18 RBI, hit two doubles and a homerun, while also swiping three bags and collecting 44 hits. Earlier in the season, Brescia was named NE10 Rookie of the Week after recording multi-hit games in four out of the five contests, while also recording a pair of runs, RBI and stolen bases. For the season, he has 13 multi-hit games, while tallying a hit in 28 games including a season-high six-game hit streak.
