Notes: Herget honored as Freshman All-America
Postseason accolades continue to come in for USF freshman pitcher Jimmy Herget, who was honored as Big East Rookie of the Year and on Wednesday was announced as a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American.
Herget, a Jefferson graduate who went 6-2 with a team-best 1.72 ERA for the Bulls, held opposing batters to a .193 batting average.
NEW HOME: Former USF guard Shaun Noriega, who had decided last month not to return for his final year with the Bulls, is transferring to Texas-Pan American, where he will be eligible immediately as a graduate transfer. Noriega, who was limited to eight games last season due to a foot injury, will rejoin former Bulls assistant Andy Hipsher, who is now on his father Dan's coaching staff at UTPA.
APR HONORS: Three USF teams -- softball and both tennis squads -- were honored for scoring in the top 10 percent nationally (with perfect 1000 scores) in the new APR scores released by the NCAA. Full scores will be released next week.
LOCAL STOPS: USF's "Around the Horns" coaches tour makes it Pinellas County stops Thursday -- first, a complimentary lunch at the Student Union of USF's St. Petersburg campus from noon to 1:30 p.m., and then football coach Willie Taggart and athletic director Doug Woolard will attend a gathering at the Hilton St. Petersburg Carillon Park from 6 to 8.
