A handful of Lincoln Trail College athletes were recognized for their achievements on the diamond this past season by receiving all-conference and/or all-region honors recently.

Three LTC baseball players and one softball player grabbed some postseason hardware by being named to one or more of the All-Great Rivers Athletic Conference and All-Region 24 teams.

On the baseball side, outfielders Jordan Brewer and Tucker Greer and pitcher Kaleb Huxford were all named to the All-GRAC Team, while Brewer and Huxford were also tabbed as All-Region 24 selections.

Brewer played in 38 games this season for LTC, posting a .367 batting average (54-147), including six doubles, four triples, three home runs, 38 runs scored and 31 runs batted in, along with 22 stolen bases. He was also stellar defensively, finishing the season with a .950 fielding percentage and committing just four errors.

Greer played in 42 games, finishing the year with a .357 average (55-154), including 10 doubles, four triples, 42 runs scored and 22 runs batted in. Greer was also a standout defender, posting a .973 fielding percentage with just two errors.

Huxford pitched in 10 games this season, compiling a 5-1 record with a 1.53 ERA in 59 innings. He allowed just 10 earned runs on 42 hits, while walking 22 batters and striking out 74.

On the softball side, the lone selection for the Lady Statesmen was infielder/outfielder Amanda Craig, who was named to the All-GRAC Team.

Craig played in all 50 games for LTC this year, posting a .324 average (59-182) with 18 doubles, seven home runs, two triples, 55 runs scored and 25 runs batted in.
