Following a successful season that came to and end Tuesday, the Alvin Community College baseball team received several postseason honors.
Head coach Jason Schreiber was named the coach of the year for the South Zone and outfielder Javeon Cody was named the South Zone player of the year.
Cody joined pitcher Garrit Van Zijll on the all-conference first team.
“Cody’s mixture of speed and power is tough to find,” ACC Athletics Director Bill Lewis said in a news release. “Van Zijll joined us in the fall of 2018 and he quickly started moving up the charts. He averaged over 14 strikeouts per nine innings pitched and finished the year among the national leaders. He was an incredible addition to the team. The coaches think both of those guys are looking at opportunities to play professionally.”
Shortstop Odrick Pitre, catcher Julian Rojas, third baseman Kade Morris and pitcher Tyler Zarella were named to the all-conference second team while Brian Dawson and Salvador Martinez were named to the Region XIV all-academic team.
The Dolphins entered the NJCAA Region 14 tournament as the No. 1 seed after winning the South Zone during the regular season with a 31-24 record and a 22-13 mark in conference play. The team was eliminated in the postseason tournament Tuesday.
“It’s always disappointing to end the season, but it was a really good year overall and we’ve got a few pieces to build around for the 2020 campaign,” Lewis said in the release. “Several of our players will be continuing their college careers at four-year schools and those final decisions will be made pretty soon as they continue to weigh their options and find their best fit as a player and student. Coach Schreiber and his staff put a lot of work into helping these players continue elsewhere.”
