Six members of the Iowa baseball team were named to the Riverview Inn Classic All-Tournament team on Monday.

The Hawkeyes went 2-1 in three tournament games in Clarkesville, Tenn., over the weekend.

Four of the honorees — shortstop Jake Yacinich, outfielder Kris Goodman, designated hitter Ryan Rumpf, and utilityman Jake Mangler — are freshmen. Upperclassman pitchers Matt Dermody and Jarred Hippen rounded out the group.

Hippen picked up his first win of the year when he threw 8 innings in a 17-3 win over Akron on March 2. The southpaw gave up 3 runs on 10 hits.

Dermody received a no-decision in a 4-3 extra-inning loss to Austin Peay on March 3 but tossed 6 2/3 innings and fanned 7 while conceding 5 hits. Austin Peay scored the tying and winning runs off Iowa's relievers.

Rumpf led the Hawkeyes with 7 hits — including a pair of triples and a double — and collected 6 RBIs. Mangler finished with a team-best 7 RBIs to go along with 4 hits and 3 runs scored.

Goodman slapped 6 hits and scored 4 runs, and Yacinich smacked a pair of doubles as part of a 5-hit, 4-RBI effort.

Iowa will play Georgetown on Saturday in the RussMatt Central Florida Invitational in Winter Haven, Fla.
