Likely candidate to take over at shortstop after anchoring down second base for nearly two seasons … Held in high regard by the team, evidenced by being a two-year captain, a rarity for the tradition-rich program.

2018: Earned first-team all-conference honors after a stellar all-around season … One of the keys to Wooster leading Div. III in hits, runs, doubles, and most importantly, fielding percentage … One of three Scots to start all 50 games … Sported a .338 average (67-for-198) with 55 runs, 35 RBI, 16 doubles, four triples, and a home run … As reliable as they come defensively with a .980 fielding percentage at second base with five errors in 255 chances … Ranked 24th nationally in runs, and was one of three Scots to finish in the top 25 in Div. III … Also among the national leaders in walks with 34, ranking 39th nationally … Scored a career-high five runs versus Hiram (April 8) with that total tied for the third-most in program history … Recorded a 19-game hitting streak, with the stretch coinciding with the first 19 games of Wooster’s 20-game winning streak … Hit .444 (36-for-81) during the streak with 21 runs, 14 RBI, and nine doubles … Went 4-for-5 with two doubles and run scored at Thiel (April 10), and followed that up with three-hit night against regional rival Marietta (April 12) … Roped a pair of two-baggers against the Etta Express … Fourth on the team with 20 multi-hit games, and had the team’s longest run of reaching base safely at 42 games.

2017: Split time in the early-going before emerging as the Scots’ everyday second baseman … Logged 37 starts and entered 45 games … Sure-handed fielder with four errors in 213 chances, and helped the Scots rank third in Div. III in fielding … Turned in a strong end to the season offensively to finish fourth on the team with a .360 (45-for-125) average … Ranked fourth on the team with 42 runs, and was 15-for-19 on stolen base attempts … Earned a spot on the NCAC All-Tournament team after a three-day stretch with a 10-for-12 (.833) clip at the plate with nine RBI, nine runs scored, and a pair of round-trippers … Went 5-for-5 with, three runs scored, two doubles, and a three-run homer versus DePauw in the winner’s bracket game (May 12) and followed that with a 4-for-5 day with six RBI and four runs scored in the championship round a day later against Tigers … Blasted a three-run homer in the fourth inning of the NCAC Tournament championship game … Swiped three stolen bases versus Misericordia (May 19) at the NCAA Div. III Mideast Regional as part of a 2-for-4 game that featured four RBI and three runs scored … Clubbed first collegiate home run at Allegheny (April 8).

2016: Speedy reserve who added depth to Wooster’s talented middle infielders … Entered 32 games, making three starts … Hit .167 (6-for-36) and scored nine runs … Delivered a big-time day versus North Central (Ill.) (March 20), going 2-for-4 at the plate with a pair of runs … Slick fielder, who didn’t make an error in 23 chances.

Prior to Wooster: Two-time all-league selection for Buddy Dice at Hudson High School … Helped team to regional runner-up and district titles as a junior … Four-time conference champion … Academic All-Ohio … Earned four letters in baseball and one in football.

Personal: Born Sept. 5, 1996 … Son of Kenneth and Laurie Stuursma … Majoring in business economics with a minor in communication studies.
