UD got off to a hot start to begin the 2019 season, going 6-1 over the spring break trip in Tucson, Arizona. However, unlike their spring break trip, the Spartans got off to a slow start in American Rivers Conference play, losing the first three series but would bounce back to win the following four to finish with a conference record of 12-11 to earn the fourth seed for the A-R-C Tournament. UD would win three games in the conference tournament to make it to the final day but fell one game short of advancing to the championship game after a 10-1 loss to #12 Coe.

Kueter would cap his career with a school record for career strikeouts with 274, and career innings pitched at 289.
Schneiderman leaves UD as the all-time saves leader in program history, shattering the previous record and finishing with 19.

He would appear in 17 games, appearing in relief in 13 of the 17, he amass a 4-0 record, six saves and 67 strikeouts in 51.2 innings.
Jordan Nelson (Iowa City, Iowa/Regina) grabbed all-conference honors for the first time in his career after a solid junior season. Nelson started 10 of the 12 games that he took the mound in 2019, working his way to a 5-4 record and threw two complete games. Over his 65.1 innings, he had an ERA of 3.31 after allowing just 24 earned runs, while striking out 52 opposing batters and walking just 16 for a 3.33 k/walk ratio.
JJ Valencia (Marysville, Wash./Marysville-Pilchuck) concluded his UD career by picking up Honorable Mention All-American Rivers Conference honors. Valenica appeared and started in all but two of UD’s games in 2019, hitting .260 (34-131), with nine extra base hits, drawing 20 free passes.

Head Coach Paul Wyczawski and the University of Dubuque baseball team clinched their first Iowa Conference tournament berth since 2005 after finishing fifth with a 19-23 record, 12-16 in the Iowa Conference.
Despite six hits, including a home run, from third basemen Dalton Garst, the Spartans were eliminated from the tournament after a 9-5 defeat to #4 seed Coe, followed by a loss to #6 seed Simpson, 10-6.
A sweep over Central and three wins against Loras propelled UD to its first IIAC Tournament berth in 11 years and its most IIAC wins since 1995.
Centerfielder Austin McWhite was one of three Spartans, all juniors, named All-Iowa Conference and led the team in 10 major categories during IIAC play, including slash line (.367/.463/.608), home runs (3), and runs (22). McWhite was picked First Team Utility, while third basemen/pitcher Garst and starting pitcher Reed Stumpf both added Second Team honors.
The aforementioned trio of juniors will guide a senior class of 14 next season as UD looks for its first 20-win season since 1995 and back-to-back IIAC Tournament berths.
“I thought the team developed nicely as the season progressed,” said Coach Wyczawski. “We had some great weekend series during the year highlighted by our four-game sweep of Central.”
“Beating Loras three times is always satisfying for our guys and so was beating Division II Northern State down in Arizona. We beat two ranked teams, #16 Wartburg and #23 Buena Vista that culminated in our trip to the IIAC tournament, a well-deserved outcome for the players.”
-Both seniors, pitchers Daniel Karnick and Tyler Trifiletti, combined for three shutout innings of relief in final game against Simpson

Sweep of #11 Wartburg Highlights 2015 Slate
DUBUQUE, Iowa – Senior starter, Josh Eastman, and the University of Dubuque baseball team flexed their muscles and potential in an emphatic day one sweep of No. 11 ranked Wartburg amidst a season where they finished 12-28, 7-21 in the Iowa Conference. UD’s chase for their first IIAC Tournament berth since 2005 will have to wait after the Spartans placed eighth in the conference.
Centerfielder Daniel Casanova and pitcher/infielder/designated hitter Dalton Garst were the first pair of Spartans to make the All-IIAC First Team since 2007. Garst led the Spartans with a .379 batting average and finished with a 5.66 ERA with 22 strikeouts and three walks in seven starts on the bump. Casanova claimed his second All-IIAC First Team award and was second on the team with a .362 batting average and added 15 steals.
“The 2015 season was filled with a lot of high expectations with a young but experienced team returning,” stated Head Coach Paul Wyczawski. “Unfortunately, with high hopes to make the conference tournament, the team we didn’t play well against the bottom half of the league in getting swept by all three, but competed well against the top four teams in the Iowa Conference, picking up wins against Wartburg (2), Coe, Central (3) and Buena Vista.”
The Spartans were hot after completing a 3-1 series at the aforementioned Central and Eastman set the tone with a lights out game one against Wartburg. One of the few seniors on a sophomore-laden team, Eastman retired the first seven Knights and gave up two hits in a 2-0, complete-game, seven-inning win. The Edgerton, Wis. native’s efforts led to his first IIAC Pitcher of the Week honor. Eastman closed out a stellar career for UD as he finished up 4th all-time in wins, 4th in complete games, 6th all-time in earned run average at 3.81, 6th in appearances, and 8th in strikeouts and 4th in complete games.
In game two, the Spartan bats erupted for 15 hits and withstood a mini-rally from the Knights in a convincing 9-5 victory. Five Spartans had multi-hit games and eight Spartan batters collected at least one RBI as UD took a 9-1 lead they would never relinquish.
The Spartan victories over Wartburg were a high point in a season that featured a number of close calls. Half of UD’s defeats came by two runs or less, including all four games in the season finale at Simpson. In a rare instance, all three of UD’s first three defeats at Simpson came via a walk-off single with bases loaded and two outs.
UD started off the season with a three-game of sweep of Elmhurst (Ill.) on the road by the combined score of 19-5, prior to their Spring Break trip to Fort Myers, Fla. UD completed their nine-game spring break trip with a 2-7 record, but ended it on a high note after dismantling McDaniel, 20-5.
In its highest scoring game of the year, UD scored in every inning and plated 13 runs over the final five innings in the nine-inning affair. Casanova continued his productive spring break to lead the Spartans with a team-high four hits and three runs scored while UD starter and two-way threat, Dalton Garst (2-0), picked up the win after allowing five earned runs and seven hits in 6.0 innings of work. Garst also went 2-for-5 at the plate with two hits and a team-high four RBIs.
“Dalton Garst had a terrific year in leading our offense and his versatility was immeasurable as a starting pitcher,” added Coach Wyczawski.
The future looks bright for a team that brings back Austin McWhite, who belted six home runs (third in the IIAC), and a pitching staff that led the IIAC in fewest walks per nine innings (27th in Division III) and best strikeout to walk ratio (51st in Division III).
