GREENSBORO, N.C. – Columbia baseball standouts Kyle Bartelman and Randell Kanemaru each picked up ABCA/Rawlings All-Northeast Region Second Team honors, as announced Wednesday afternoon. The Lions were one of two Ivy League schools (Yale) to have two representatives and were one of five Ancient Eight programs represented.

Kanemaru was the Ivy League Player of the Year and a unanimous first team All-Ivy League honoree. The junior third baseman hit a conference-best .395, which currently ranks sixth in the NCAA. He ranked in the top five in the Ancient Eight in RBI (second – 42), hits (second – 60), doubles (tied for second – 14), slugging (third - .625), runs (tied for third – 35) and home runs (tied for fifth – seven). The Santa Ana, California, product recorded at least one hit in 34 of 38 games and reached base in all but two contests.

Bartelman, who was also a unanimous All-Ivy League First Team choice, hit .349 with seven homers and .568 slugging percentage and knocked in 33 runs. The second baseman had a stellar conference campaign, batting .425, slugging .868 and knocked in 27 runs.

The duo becomes the seventh and eighth players selected ABCA All-Northeast Region since 2008.
