– Augustana baseball was recognized by the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference on Tuesday for its great regular season play. The Vikings had five players selected to the All-NSIC first and second teams.

Tony Viger, Jake Petersen, Jack Goihl, Kye Winter, and Marcus O’Neill earned All-NSIC honors for Augustana the league announced in a press release. Viger was selected to the first team at third base, Petersen chosen to the first team at second, and Goihl made the first team at utility. Winter was rewarded for his versatility displayed this season in the field and on the hill, being named to All-NSIC first team at both the pitcher and outfielder positions. O’Neill was named to the second team in the outfield.

Viger was also selected as the NSIC’s Player of the Year for his stellar play this season, becoming the first Viking to win the award since Nate Baumann back in 2010. The Sioux Falls, S.D. native has been a unstoppable force at the plate for Augustana all year, leading the NSIC in multiple categories, including runs scored (60), hits (82), RBI (58), doubles (26), and total bases (142). Viger’s 26 doubles currently lead the NCAA this year. The senior third baseman’s .429 batting average marks a new career high and led a Vikings’ offense that dominated opposing pitchers for most of 2014.
