Resnik, a Burgettstown graduate, was also named first-team All-ECAC, picked up the honor after posting a 7-4 record with a 2.83 ERA. He logged a Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC)-high 82.2 innings and league-best 86 strikeouts, including a conference season-high 15 punchouts in a 16-7 win against Gordon College on March 5, to go along with a PAC-best nine complete games.
