Posted

Madisonville High School graduate and Concordia University (Texas) basketball player Tommy Holiday was named the American Southwest Conference co-West Division Player of the Week Jan. 27.

The sophomore was cited for his 14 points and 10 rebounds against Mary Hardin-Baylor, his second double-double of the season.

Holiday, one of two Concordia players to start the team's first 23 games, averaged 8.4 points, fifth on the squad. He led the team in blocked shots, and his 5.7 rebounds per game ranked second.

Baseball

Paris Junior College pitcher Zach Poe allowed one hit and four unearned runs in the team's loss to LSU Eunice. The former Mustang walked two and struck out one but did not factor in the decision. In another game against LSU Eunice, he singled twice in four at-bats while handling his eight fielding chances at first base.

MHS graduate and Cisco College sophomore pitcher Bryce Bennett earned the win in a start against State Fair. He allowed two hits and struck out four in two and one-third innings.

Also from the Mustangs, pitcher Matt Rudis allowed a double in one-third inning of relief for Texas Christian University against Abilene Christian. The sophomore induced a groundout from the other hitter he faced in his debut.

Sophomore Sam Bennett shot 211 (71-71-69) for Texas A & M University at the Sea Best Invitational. The Madisonville product tied for 19th and was fifth among the Aggies.

University of Houston senior Logan Young competed as an individual in the All-American Intercollegiate. The Normangee High School graduate shot 218 (73-70-75) to tie for 30th.

Softball

Normangee alumna Ashlyn Teran hit safely in starting the first seven games for Southwestern Assemblies of God University. The sophomore, who transferred from Bellevue University (Neb.), batted .391, second on the squad, with two runs batted in. The left-hander had an 0-1 record and 2.33 earned run average in two pitching appearances.

Raegan VanCour singled in three at-bats for Ranger College against Odessa. The sophomore second baseman from North Zulch High School made two putouts in her only fielding chances.
