SWAC Baseball Champion Prairie View A&M Has Four Named To All-Tournament Team
Fresh off of its 7-4 Southwestern Athletic Conference Championship win over Mississippi Valley State, Prairie View A&M received more good news with four players being named to the SWAC All-Tournament team.
Panthers catcher Evan Richard received his SWAC Tournament MVP award on Sunday, and fittingly he was also named to the All-SWAC team as a catcher. He went 5-for-13 (.385) with three RBIs, three runs scored and six base on balls during the tournament.
Sophomore James Fontenot was named to the All-SWAC team at short stop. Fontenot was only 2-for-14 at the plate, but he drew nine walks, had five runs scored and two stolen bases in the tournament. Fontenot also proved to be one of the more exciting defensive players to watch with a seemingly unlimited range of coverage and the arm to get the put outs at first or turn double plays.
