Maurice adds to accolades

NEWARK, Del. – Senior Kyle Maurice (Exeter, N.H.) of the Saint Anselm College baseball team was named to the Division II Conference Commissioners Association (CCA) All-East Region First Team on Wednesday.

Maurice, who was named the Northeast-10 Conference Northeast Division Player of the Year, grabbed one of three outfield positions on the All-East Region First Team.

Maurice concluded his senior season with a .396 batting average which led the Hawks and ranked third in the NE10. That batting average is also third best in a Saint Anselm single season. Maurice slugged 14 home runs which leads the conference and is second most in a single season. Maurice scored 45 runs and drove in 48 which ranks seventh and second in those categories against the NE10. The senior recorded 63 hits which is now seventh in the conference. He posted a slugging percentage of .730 which ranks third in the conference and is second most in annals.

Maurice compiled a 16-game hitting streak this season, going 31-for-62 (.500) on the streak which started in game one of a doubleheader against Assumption on Mar. 27 and ended against Saint Michael’s on Apr. 23 in game two of that doubleheader. Maurice slugged three home runs in game two of the Hawks doubleheader against American International on May 6, missing just a three-run home run for the home run cycle. Maurice also drove in eight runs in that contest. Maurice recorded a hit in 35 of 42 games played in 2022 and recorded multiple hits in 19 of those contests.

Defensively, the senior committed one error in 125 total chances which is good for a .992 fielding percentage. That percentage currently ranks 19th in the conference.

In two seasons of play for Saint Anselm, Maurice batted .355, recorded a slugging percentage of .701, and had an on-base percentage of.458. Maurice registered 89 hits in 251 at-bats. He scored 73 runs with 15 doubles, 24 home runs, and 81 runs batted in. Maurice’s 24 homers are second most in a career on the Hilltop. He posted a .990 fielding percentage with just three errors in 315 chances.

The senior helped the Hawks to their second consecutive NE10 postseason appearance, the first time the program has done that since the 2005 and 2006 seasons. Saint Anselm registered 22 wins in 2022 which is sixth most in a single season and the most since the 2012 season.
