EASLEY, South Carolina — New Lothrop alumnus Grant Steinborn helped lead Concordia University-Ann Arbor to the National Christian College Athletic Association World Series championship May 25.
In the championship game, a 6-2 victory over Warner, Steinborn went 1 for 1, scored a run and drove in two.
Steinborn was the starting pitcher in both games won by Concordia May 24. After jumping out to a big lead against Ecclesia College — a 12-2 win — he was pulled after three innings so he could pitch in the semifinals.
He threw seven innings in a 17-4 win over College of the Ozarks and totaled 153 pitches on the day, striking out eight and giving up five earned runs.
In the six-game tournament, Steinborn went 9 for 22 (.409) with six runs scored, two home runs and eight RBIs.
He ended the season 9-2 with a 2.63 ERA. Steinborn hit .333 for the year and drove in 44 runs with five homers. The NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) named him an honorable mention All-American.
