Maur Hill-Mount Academy standout and former Immaculata player Zach Schwinn announced he will be continuing not only his basketball playing career, but his baseball career as well, at Benedictine College.

Schwinn was considering the University of Saint Mary, but said that Benedictine just felt like a natural fit for him.

“I chose Benedictine, because I think it will be the best fit for me,” Schwinn said. “I really like the style of play that coach Ryan Moody has implemented for his team, and hope to help continue the success from last season.”

Benedictine basketball is coming off one of its best seasons in program history, in which they set a school record with 29 wins in a row and made it to the second round of the NAIA Basketball Championship.

Schwinn spent the last two seasons with the MH-MA Ravens after the shutdown of Immaculata in the summer of 2017.

Schwinn helped lead MH-MA to two straight state tournament appearances and scored his 1,000th point in his high school career this season as well.

The Raven was also a two time All-State selection earning honorable mention in 17-18 and second team in 18-19.

Schwinn said the plan is to redshirt this incoming season and that while he will try to play baseball, the hardwood remains the top priority.

“I will redshirt next year and also try to play baseball as well, but basketball is the priority,” Schwinn said. “I’m very happy to still be a Raven.”
