LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech baseball had seven student-athletes named to the 2017 Academic All-Big 12 teams, the league announced today.
Senior Ryan Long highlights this year’s class, as he was one of two in the conference nominated with a 4.0 GPA. It was also the third-straight year he’s earned first team accolades and completed the four-year academic sweep, as he was selected to the conference’s Academic All-Rookie team in 2014.
Joining Long in picking up first team nods include: juniors Tanner Gardner, Parker Mushinski and Jacob Patterson, along with sophomore Steven Gingery. Senior Hunter Hargrove and sophomore Cody Farhat were also named to the second team.
It is the second time Hargrove and Patterson have been named to their respective teams during their Red Raider careers.
First team members consist of those who have maintained a 3.20 or better GPA, while the second team selections hold a 3.00 or 3.19 GPA.
To quality, student-athletes must maintain a 3.00 GPA or higher either cumulative or the two previous semesters and must have participated in 60 percent of their team’s scheduled contests. Freshman and transfers are not eligible in their first year of academic residence. Senior student-athletes who have participated for a minimum of two years and meet all the criteria except percent of participation are also eligible.
The Red Raiders wrap up the regular season on May 18-20 against Kansas at Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park.
