May 22, 2012
MADISON, S.D. – Seven different Dakota State University baseball student-athletes had been listed in the DSU Baseball Record book during the 2012 campaign. They were also integral members of the team that made a postseason run, which included a runner-up honor in the Association of Independent Institutions (A.I.I.) conference tournament and a first-ever appearance in the NAIA Baseball National Championship Opening Round with an overall record of 28-28.
Anyelo Roman, first-team A.I.I. All-Conference selection, is listed in nine different categories in the DSU record book. He broke school records in five different categories in a single season – 191 at-bats (previously set by Greg Biagi in 2007 with 185 at-bats), 70 hits (Biagi in 2007 with 66), 138 total bases (Ryan Holthaus in 2003 with 104 total bases), 17 home runs (Josh Tiede in 2010 and Evan Hogan in 2003 each with 10 home runs) and 55 runs batted in (Biagi in 2007 with 53 RBIs).
