Seven Knights earn All-C-USA honors
The No. 16 UCF Knights baseball team had a program-best seven players honored with All-Conference USA honors on Tuesday.
Junior first baseman D.J. Hicks and closer Joe Rogers were named to the All-C-USA First Team. Meanwhile, senior second baseman Travis Shreve, senior outfielder Alex Friedrich, sophomore pitcher Ben Lively and junior outfielder Ronnie Richardson were selected for the league’s second team.
Freshman pitcher Eric Skoglund was selected to the All-Freshmen Team, the 10th Knight all-time to earn a slot on the team.
Pairings announced for NCAA Championship
The UCF Knights men’s golf team has learned when it will tee off, and with whom, on the first day of play at the NCAA Championships in Pacific Palisades, Calif.
The Knights will get started bright and early, teeing off at 7:20 a.m. local time. UCF will be teamed with SEC-power Georgia and Iowa.
The appearance in the NCAA Championship is the fifth in the program’s history.
Midfielder added to recruiting class
Jeff Michaud, heralded as one of the top prep players in Florida, will be donning black and gold this fall. Head coach Bryan Cunningham announced on Tuesday that Michaud, a star at Dwyer High School, has joined the Knights’ recruiting class.
“Jeff is one of the top players in Florida. We are thrilled that he is coming to join us,” Cunningham said. “He is a very hard working player with a great knowledge of the game.”
Michaud, who was selected to the South Florida Sun Sentinel’s All-Palm beach County First Team, scored 31 goals and had 15 assists in 15 games as a senior.
Recruiting class ranked No. 17 in nation
Despite a disappointing 10-13 season, the UCF Knights men’s tennis team appears poised for bigger things.
TennisRecruiting.net has ranked UCF’s incoming recruiting class as the No. 17 class in the nation. Incoming recruits Amar Hromic, William Kwok and Pedro Wagner, who will arrive for the program this fall, should give head coach Bobby Cashman’s program reason to be excited.
Two of the three (Hromic and Wagner) have international experience, and Kwow participated in the USTA National Championship in 2011.
