Gorloks after Winning 2012 Millington NCAA III Regional

The Webster University baseball team is ninth in the annual NCAA Division III pre-season poll taken by Collegiate Baseball News. The Gorloks, who ranked ninth in last season’s final poll, finished fifth in the 2012 NCAA Division III World Series.

Webster was 36-14 in 2012, setting a school record for wins in a season. The Gorloks graduate Rawlings/ABCA All-American pitcher David Mueller (Westminster Academy) and St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Year, first baseman Tom Henke (Lindbergh HS), but return a solid core for 2013.

Six offensive starters are back, including two 2012 NCAA All-Tournament Team members, shortstop Taylor Stoulp (St. Mary’s HS) and Kevin Kojs (Lincoln Way Central HS, Ill.). The Gorloks also return three of four starting pitchers, including SLIAC Newcomer of the Year Isaac Behme (Harrisburg HS, Ill.). Webster will have a stable of arms to work with, as three starters who sat out the 2012 season due to injuries, are expected to contribute in 2013.

The Gorloks will face three of the top five ranked teams in the poll, including No. 1 ranked Wheaton College (Mass.), in the Russ Matt Central Florida Invitational in Orlando, Fla., in March.
