McIlwain finished third in the Mid-Eastern Atlantic Conference with a .377 batting average and the highest mark of any player with more than 100 at-bats. McIlwain started every game for Eagles knocking in 33 runs along with three homers. His on-base percentage (.463) led the MEAC, though it was only slightly better than his teammate’s, Brett Helmbrecht (.446).

The Eagles (11-31 overall, 8-15 conference) haven’t had a winning season in their 33-year history, but have had some highlights in the previous seven seasons under head coach Sherman Reed. In 2013, the Eagles had the nation’s highest win-turnaround percentage while winning 18 games. Coppin started this season 1-4-1, including a tough, 3-1 loss at Navy on Wednesday.
