RICHARDSON, Texas — Eastern New Mexico University seniors Bryan Moore and Trevor Davis have been named Lone Star Conference South Division baseball Co-Player of the Year and Co-Pitcher of the Year, respectively.
The league office released its All-LSC baseball squads on Monday. Moore, Davis and senior Brett Scherer were first-team All-South selections for the Greyhounds (26-27, 10-10 South), while senior shortstop Josh Kuchta made the second team and senior first baseman Mark Wallace earned honorable mention.
Moore, the only ENMU player to start all 53 games, shared the Player of the Year honor with junior catcher Steve Yaden of Texas A&M-Kingsville.
A second baseman from Woolforth, Texas, Moore challenged Dallas McMann’s 2003 school single-season batting record of .433 until the final weekend of the season. He finished the year at .413, also leading the Greyhounds in runs (52), hits (76), doubles (16), triples (5), walks (31) and stolen bases (17).
Davis, from Evergreen, Colo., went 11-5 with a 4.88 earned run average in 24 appearances, including 13 starts. He pitched 94 innings, threw seven complete games and notched four saves.
Davis, who set single-season and career school records for wins, shared the Pitcher of the Year honor with Abilene Christian junior Ben Maynard.
Scherer, from Ingram, Texas, split time between the mound and third base in earning a first-team award as a utility player. He batted .370 for the season, while posting a 3-5 record with a 5.71 earned run average on the mound.
Kuchta, a Clovis High grad, batted .335 while starting 51 games. He also saw action in four games as a relief pitcher.
Wallace, from Alamagordo, started all but one game at first base for the Hounds, posting a .330 average with three homers and a team-leading 41 runs batted in. In addition, he pitched in seven games in relief and compiled a 2.38 ERA over 11 1/3 innings.
