This past weekend, pitcher Rick Anton and outfielder Kole Calhoun were named NJCAA Honorable Mention All-Americans.
Both players led the Roughrider baseball team to a 41-16-1 overall record and an ACCAC Championship.
Calhoun, a sophomore from Buckeye, Arizona, led the team in batting average (.413), home runs (18), hits (81) and runs batted in (59). The Arizona State bound Calhoun was named First Team All-ACCAC and NJCAA Region I Division I First Team.
Anton, a freshman from Prescott, Arizona, was the ace of the mound for the Roughriders compiling 13 wins, 84 strikeouts and a school record of 1.38 ERA. Later this month, Anton will participate with an NJCAA All-Star team that will compete against the Taiwanese Junior National Team in Millington, Tennessee.
