Schneider hit cleanup for Stonehill this spring and led the team with a .339 batting average to pair with a team leading .397 on base percentage. The Camarillo, California native hit two homeruns and recorded 27 RBI while scoring 21 runs.
In Stonehill's first ever win over a nationally ranked No. 1 opponent, Schneider drove in the first Skyhawk run of the game and in his next at-bat roped a two-RBI double to left center field, breaking the tie and giving Stonehill the lead they would hold on to for the rest of the game.
