As a freshman last season, Van Eyk compiled a perfect 7-0 record to go with a 2.86 ERA. Van Eyk was used primarily as a reliever in his 19 appearances, which included five starts.

With a wicked curveball, Van Eyk struck out 71 opposing batters in 56 2/3 innings. Opponents hit just .208 off the righty. Van Eyk was second on the team behind fellow freshman Jonah Scolaro with two saves.
