Panthers Put Two on All-Conference Baseball Team
May 13, 2013
Two Tompkins Cortland Community College baseball players have been named to the Mid-State Athletic Conference all-conference baseball team. Sophomore Matt Jones (Greene H.S./Greene) and freshman Sean Streb (Lansing H.S./Lansing) were among the 15 selected to the team. Voting was done by the coaches from the six conference teams.
Jones saw time on the mound and in right field. As a pitcher he was fourth in appearances (six) and innings pitched (26.1). He was third in strikeouts (20) and tossed the team’s lone shutout this season, a 9-0 win over Corning Community College. At the plate he was second on the team with a .337 batting average and tops with a .400 on-base percentage. His 18 RBI were second best on the team, and his five doubles were third best.
Streb, who also was named a soccer all-American in the fall, split time between the mound and shortstop. He was the team’s top hitter with a .373 batting average and a .427 slugging percentage. He stole a team-best ten bases and was by far the toughest player to strike out (three in 110 at bats). His 21 RBI led the team and his six doubles were the second best. On the mound he was second in wins (two) and ERA (4.12). He had the most strikeouts (42) in the second most innings of work (48).
It’s the seventh straight year Tompkins Cortland has placed at least two players on the all-conference team.
