He was second on the team with 14 doubles and was tied for the team lead with 38 RBI. Troelstrup blasted a career-high five homers and scored 30 runs and collected 15 multiple-hit games. He produced two three-hit games and went 4-for-5 on March 17 against Georgia Southern and collected four RBI in the game.
