Eagle Baseball All-Conference Team Honors

The Northeast Texas Community College Baseball team is proudly marching into the Regional Tournament this week, a testament to the dedication and hard work of the members of the Eagle Baseball team.

Sophomore Carson Lorch from Cypress, Texas, has earned the prestigious First Team All-Conference at second base. Lorch’s impressive .332 batting average on the season, along with his 61 hits, 18 doubles, 2 triples, and 6 home runs, is a remarkable feat. They walked him 39 times and hit him by the pitch 14 times. The speedy Lorch added 21 stolen bases while only being caught four times on the season. Carson will be playing for Tarleton State University next year, a well-deserved opportunity.

Freshman Ayden Terry from Lavon, Texas, was named First Team All-Conference as a first baseman. Terry batted .261 with 38 Runs Batted In (RBI) and scored 32 runs to help the Eagles offensively. Like Lorch, Terry found his way on base a lot, being walked 33 times and hit five times on the year. Terry had a .970 fielding percentage on the season and saw some action on the mound for the Eagles.

Sophomore Barron Sawyer, Abbeville, Louisiana, was on the First Team as a starting pitcher. Barron went 6-2 on the season with a 3.56 Earned Run Average (ERA) with 48 innings pitched. Sawyer averaged 12.5 strikeouts per game and held opponents to a .153 batting average against him.

Freshman JJ Rickert, from Mansfield, Texas, was selected to the first team as a relief pitcher for the Eagles. The right-hander was 3-2 with 3 saves and 20 strikeouts in just over 28 innings of work.

Luke Regas, a Freshman from Waxahachie, Texas, was selected to the second team as a catcher. Regas saw action in fifty games this season, batting .313 with 26 RBIs. Luke had two home runs on the year and thirteen doubles.

Sophomore Dalton Hill, from Minden, Louisiana, was also selected to the second team as a starting pitcher for the Eagles. Hill, who plans to move on to Nicholls State next season, was 5-4 in twelve starts for the Eagles and struck out 55 batters on the season. Opposing teams had a .228 batting average against Hill this season.

Jonathan Gonzales, Austin, Texas, who received Honorable Mention Designated Hitter, was rounding out the All-Conference honors. Gonzales would mainly see action as the DH this season but also played First Base and pitched for the Eagles. Jonathan had a .321 batting average with 10 doubles on the season.

The Eagles are gearing up for an exhilarating post-season play, set to begin Thursday, May 9, at 10:00 am. They will be facing off against San Jacinto College in Corsicana as Navarro College hosts the double-elimination Regional tournament. The stage is set for a thrilling showdown.
