A first-team CUNYAC All-Star, DiMarco earned most of his starts at third base this season, seeing time at second base as well. As one of CSI’s hottest hitters to close the season, he finished with a .348 average at the dish, leading CSI with 14 doubles and a .497 on-base percentage, thanks to his 33 bases-on-balls. DiMarco added 19 RBI and was tied for second on the unit with 27 runs scored.
