Windham finished last year third in NCAA Division III in home runs with 12 and was just two away from leading the nation.  He recorded 41 RBI to lead the team and had a .311 batting average with five doubles and a .615 slugging percentage.  Starting 40 games, he led the ASC in home runs and was second in slugging percentage, third in RBI, and fourth in runs scored (83).

Last year Windham earned All-ASC East first-team honors and was a member of the ABCA All-West Region first-team and the D3Baseball.com second-team.

ETBU hosts their season opener on Friday, February 7th, at 2:00 p.m. against Centenary College.
