Cumbie, Scheiner Tabbed All-Region

June 14, 2017

HOUSTON -- Fresh off of earning All-America honors, Houston Baseball's dynamic duo of Trey Cumbie and Jake Scheiner were named to the ABCA/Rawlings South-Central All-Region First Team, the organization announced Wednesday afternoon.

The teams are voted on by members of the American Baseball Coaches Association and the process is led by the ABCA NCAA Div. I All-America Committee.

Under head coach Todd Whitting, 2017 marks the fifth straight season a Cougar has earned All-Region honors. After Cumbie and Scheiner's recognition, the running total under Whitting is up to 11 in five seasons.

This marks the first year since 2014 that two Cougars were named to the All-Region First Team.

Cumbie and Scheiner continue to be rewarded for their strong play during the 2017 season as the duo was just recently named to All-America Teams by both NCBWA and Perfect Game earlier today.

Cumbie led the American Athletic Conference with a 2.04 ERA and a 10-2 record in 15 starts. The southpaw fanned 82 in 101.1 innings and had four complete games to his name this season.
