Tarleton State's Jonathan Schmitz and Eythan Lenz were both recognized by the Lone Star Conference for their efforts on the diamond last week - earning the Hitter and Pitcher of the Week honors, respectively.
Schmitz got off to a stellar offensive start last weekend, leading Tarleton State to a pair of wins at Minute Maid Park in the Houston Winter Invitational.
He had multi-hit game in all four contests at Minute Maid, including a 3-3 effort in the season opener against Winona State. For the week, Schmitz scored six runs and is hitting an LSC-leading .667. He also has 10 hits, three RBIs and two doubles.
Lenz had a phenomenal opening weekend out of the bullpen for Tarleton State, pitching in three of the four games at the Houston Winter Invitational at Minute Maid Park.
The senior from Hutto tossed four scoreless innings of relief, allowing just one hit and striking out five. He also earned the win for Tarleton in Friday's victory over No. 38 St. Mary's with 2.2 innings of work with four strikeouts against the Rattlers. His four innings was one inning short of the team leader for last weekend (5.0).
This is the first career weekly award for both players.
Schmitz, Lenz and the rest of the Texans will return to action this weekend when Tarleton visits St. Mary's for a three-game series against St. Mary's in San Antonio beginning Friday at 3 p.m.
