“Making NCAAs for the first time (individually) was awesome for him,” Rhodenbaugh said. “I would say he had a great year. The end of the season didn’t go quite as well as we wanted it to, but that happens sometimes, especially at your first NCAAs when you don’t have all those seniors around you.”
Rhodenbaugh said he’s excited to see what Hein does in his next two years with the team.
“He’s one of the leaders of the team,” Rhodenbaugh said. “He’s a guy that does everything right. He studies incredibly hard; he makes great decisions, and he’s a really hard worker. I see nothing but good stuff in his future.”
