Carl Albert State College’s third baseman, Ben Klutts of Poteau, Okla., has been chosen as one of nine NJCAA Region II Division II baseball players to receive the 2018 Gold Glove Award.

Ben Klutts is the third player in CASC baseball history to earn the Regional Gold Glove Award.

 

“I’ve been thoroughly impressed with Ben’s performance throughout his first year in collegiate baseball,” said Tyler Guthrie..... ‘He’s sure-handed and has a really strong arm for third base.

Four Carl Albert State College softball players have been named to the NJCAA All-Region, Region II Teams.

 

Kyla Brown, of Wister. Okla., has been named to the First Team as an All-Region Catcher; Katie McCullar, of Red Oak, Okla., has been named to the Second Team as an All-Region Infielder; Nikki Harrison, of Waldron, Ark., has received Honorable Mention as an All-Region Infielder; Lindsey Eveld, of Ft.

These athletes are selected by regional coaches for their athletic performance and statistics throughout the spring season. Nine softball teams throughout Arkansas and Oklahoma compete in the Region II division, ensuring a highly competitive selection process for the Region II Teams.

 

This is the first time in several years that CASC has had four players named to the Region II Teams.

 

“The competition in our division is remarkable,” said David Holt, CASC Head Softball Coach. “To have one athlete voted to an All-Region team is the highest accomplishment for a coach; to have four athletes selected, well that’s a true testament to the caliber of our student athletes and I could not be more proud of our ladies.”

ENID, Okla. - Southern Arkansas secured its fifth Great American Conference Baseball Championship title as the Muleriders defeated Oklahoma Baptist, 16-3, on Tuesday from David Allen Memorial Ballpark. Mulerider Austin Baker earned Tournament MVP honors.

 

The Muleriders (36-17) needed two wins on Tuesday to win the title and opened the day with a 5-2 win thanks in large part to the pitching of Dillon Lawrence. In the second game, they fell behind 3-1 early before scoring the final 15 runs, 13 of which came in the sixth inning.

 

After tying the game with a pair of two-out hits in the fifth inning, the Muleriders sent 18 hitters to the plate in the sixth. Jake Tisevich gave SAU the lead with a run-scoring single and Cortland McPherson plated two with a single to right. Cole Boyd hit his third home run of the tournament to double the SAU advantage to 9-3.

 

The final seven Mulerider runs in the inning all came with two out. Zach Muldoon scored on a wild pitch. Jacob Richardson produced a two-run single; Dakota Wright drove home Tisevich and Richardson with a single to left; Boyd notched his second hit of the frame, a single to score McPherson, and designated hitter James Trevanion capped the rally with a run-scoring single.

 

Baker collected 12 hits in the tournament, one shy of the single-year record. He hit .522 with a home run - the game-changing grand slam against Henderson State on Monday - and eight RBI. Boyd, McPherson and Lawrence also represented the Muleriders on the All-Tournament Team. Boyd accumulated a tournament-leading 20 total bases. McPherson drove in nine RBI and Lawrence’s win in Tuesday’s opener forced the if necessary game.

 

Josh Timms, who hit his third home run of the tournament in the fourth inning for the Bison (31-17), earned All-Tournament recognition along with his teammates Juan Gonzalez and Thomas Shroder. Arkansas Tech’s Cody Wescott and Hayes Cox, Henderson State’s Joseph Shepherd and Zack Gray plus Southwestern Oklahoma State’s Alex Pimental filled out the All-Tournament Team.

 

With the win, Southern Arkansas earned the automatic bid into the NCAA Regional. The Muleriders, along with the GAC’s at-large hopefuls, will learn their postseason fate during the NCAA.com Selection Show, set to stream at 9 p.m. on Sunday.

ENID, Oklahoma – Arkansas Tech third baseman Cody Wescott had a banner day at the plate, leading the fifth-seeded Wonder Boys to a 9-3 victory against Southern Arkansas in the second game of the 2018 Great American Conference Baseball Championships. Freshman and All-GAC Honorable Mention Hayes Cox provided eight strong innings on the hill to earn his ninth win of the year.

 

Arkansas Tech (28-21) took advantage of two early errors by the Muleriders (32-17) and scored four runs in the top of the first inning. Following a double off the bat of Harry Gard, the Wonder Boys capitalized on miscue by catcher Zach Muldoon and second baseman Austin Baker on consecutive plays. Wescott then hit a double to left that scored a pair of runs. A sacrifice fly from Korey Thompson scored Mark Vaughn to put Southern Arkansas in a 4-0 hole.

 

The Wonder Boys got an impressive performance on the mound from Cox who threw eight-plus innings, allowing five hits and two earned runs while striking out seven. He carried a shutout into the ninth inning before SAU touched him up for a pair of runs.

 

Michael Post drove in a fifth ATU run in the top of the fourth inning when he found a gap in left-center for an RBI triple. Tech found consistent success against GAC Pitcher of the Year Hunter Vasquez, as the Wonder Boys tagged the right-hander for nine hits and four earned runs over his 5.2 innings of work.

 

Wescott went 3-for-5 at the plate as he took Vasquez deep in the fifth inning for a two-run home run to extend the Wonder Boys lead to 7-0.

 

The third baseman added to his productive day when he ripped his second double of the day off the brick wall in left in a seventh inning that produced Tech’s final two runs of the contest.

 

After SAU’s Cortland McPherson hit a two-run home in the top of the ninth, Tech head coach Dave Dawson made the move to the bullpen for Isaac Hale. He worked through a two-out rally and secured a trip to the winner’s bracket.

 

With the win, Arkansas Tech will face the winner of Oklahoma Baptist-Henderson State on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. while Southern Arkansas will play Arkansas-Monticello in the tournament’s first elimination game Sunday at 12:30 p.m.
