Canfield High School graduate Tim Calhoun has been second-team All-North Coast Athletic Conference in baseball for his individual efforts this season at Hiram College.

Calhoun earns his first All-Conference award after leading the team in batting average at .354 (45-of-127). His 45 hits were tops on the team and posted 12 multi-hit games, including a season-best three hits on several occasions. He also led the team in runs batted in with 30. In addition, Calhoun was tied for second in home runs with two and 16 walks, was second in doubles with nine and was amongst the leaders in runs scored with 16. Defensively, he had a .991 fielding percentage with 181 putouts, 31 assists and two errors alternating between a starting catcher and first baseman.

"It's an honor to be recognized in a conference amongst such great players," said Calhoun.

Calhoun also saw playing time on the mound as a pitcher making four appearances and posted a 2.45 earned run average. He ended the season with a 1-0 record to go along with two strikeouts in three and two-thirds innings.

"It is always exciting to see any of your players receive post-season recognition for all of their hard work and dedication," said veteran head coach Howard Jenter. "With the NCAC being one of the best in Division III baseball, I am very proud of Tim on his selection to the All-Conference team. He is very deserving of this honor and it's exciting that he will be back for us again next year."
