Incarnate Word junior baseball standout Kyle Bergeron, a former Bridge City standout, was named to the All-Southland Conference Preseason Team that was announced this week.

Bergeron was an All-SLC performer last year for the Cardinals.

Bergeron played and started in 55 games for the Cardinals, hitting .321, primarily at second base. He finished the regular season ranked second in the league and No. 87 in the nation with 50 RBI. Bergeron also tallied 75 hits, good for fifth in the conference. He averaged 1.36 hits per game, which ranked sixth in the SLC. The Bridge City, Texas, native was also seventh in the league with 46 runs.

Bergeron led the team with 22 multi-hit games, including 15 games with two hits, four games with three hits, and three games with four hits. He also led the team with 13 mutli-RBI games – seven with two RBI, four with three RBI, and two with four RBI. Bergeron had a 13-game hitting streak and reached base in 20 consecutive games.

“Kyle was a standout run producer all year,” said Hallmark. “It’s great that others have noticed as well. We are proud of him and we are looking for big things from him next season.”

Bergeron not only made the All-Conference Team last season, he was also selected as a First Team Academic All-Conference player.

To be eligible for academic all-conference honors, student-athletes must have above a 3.00 cumulative GPA. Additionally, they must have completed at least one year at their current institution and have played in at least 50 percent of the team’s games at their position.

Bergeron is a business administration major with a minor in finance.

Bergeron was also joined by teammates Eddy Gonzalez and Ryan Flores on the SLC Preseason All-Conference Team.
