Dylan Diveney

PELLA — Marshalltown High School graduate Dylan Diveney has been honored with his second selection to D3baseball.com’s All-Central Region third team, the website announced Tuesday.

Diveney, a junior pitcher on the Central College baseball team, finished this season with a 1.66 earned run average and 41 strikeouts in 43 1/3 innings on the mound. Opponents hit just .195 against Diveney, who allowed only two extra-base hits and nine runs — eight earned — all season.

Diveney earned the same recognition as a freshman in 2015 after being named the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference’s Pitcher of the Year. The a 2014 MHS graduate missed most of his sophomore campaign at Central because of an injury.

Diveney and the rest of the Dutch finished this spring with a 20-22 record, going 12-12 in conference play.
