Also an All-Big Ten Freshman pick, Hagenman is just the second Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American from Penn State and the first since 1997 (Michael Campo). He was one of 34 starting pitchers recognized across the country and the only one from the Big Ten. Overall, Hagenman was one of four Big Ten picks to the team.

Hagenman became the first Penn State pitcher to reach six wins since 2011. He started the finales of all of Penn State’s weekend series, finishing with an ERA of 3.84 in 82 innings pitched. His best outing came at Illinois, as he pitched 8 1/3 innings, allowing only an unearned run early and then two earned runs in the ninth scored after he departed. He also matched his career high of six strikeouts and allowed just four hits and two walks.

Hagenman’s efforts helped the Nittany Lions achieve their first winning season since 2012.
