STEPHENVILLE (May 12, 2016) — Trevor Renfro boasted one of the top pitching seasons in Tarleton baseball history and his work was recognized with a first-team All-LSC selection Wednesday night.

Joining Renfro on the awards list was second-team selections Jacob French, Alec Humphreys, andJake Hasbrouck, as well as academic All-LSC honoree Blain Bagley.

Renfro, a right-handed hurler from Richardson, earned his first conference honor after leading the league in ERA (2.36), complete games (8), and opponent batting average (.208). He was also a three-time Lone Star Conference pitcher of the week and finished his career by throwing seven consecutive complete games. He is the 54th Texan since Tarleton joined the Lone Star Conference in 1994 to earn first-team honors and the first pitcher named to the league’s top all-conference team since Robert Baker in 2014.

He also set the single season Tarleton record for strikeouts in a season with 92, making him the first Texan since the program was reinstated in 1988 to top 90 Ks in a season.

Tarleton landed three Texans on the second team of the league honors.

Jacob French earned his first award from the Lone Star Conference after coming back from an injury in 2015 to throw 68.2 innings this spring. The redshirt senior from Kingwood missed all of last season but battled back to pitch in 14 games this year for Tarleton while boasting a 4.98 ERA and 58 strikeouts.

Alec Humphreys claimed second-team honors, marking the second consecutive season on the league’s all-second team. In his swan song season for Tarleton, Humphreys led the team with a .342 batting average, 15 doubles, and 33 RBIs while setting the new Tarleton single season record for defensive assists with 174. Humphreys took over the shortstop role for Tarleton as a senior after earning all-LSC honors as a third baseman in 2015.

Rounding out Tarleton’s LSC second-team honorees was redshirt sophomore Jake Hasbrouck, who led the Texans with seven home runs in his debut season for the Purple and White. The designated hitter from Ault, Colorado hit .307 for the Texans and drove in 31 RBIs in 47 games.

Tarleton’s Blain Bagley also received recognition as a member of the league’s All-Academic team. The senior lefty from San Marcos started 11 games on the season and boasted a 4.97 ERA from the mound while maintaining a team-high 3.94 grade point average as a Kinesiology major.

Bagley’s honor marks the fourth consecutive season that Tarleton has had a member of the all-academic team.
