Former Lufkin Panthers’ pitcher Trey Cumbie’s first collegiate shutout led to some added accolades as he was named the American Athletic Conference’s Pitcher of the Week.
Cumbie earned the honor after one of the most dominating performances of his collegiate career when he led his Cougars to a shutout win over Top 25 Louisiana-Lafayette.
He allowed just five hits and struck out five to improve his individual record to 3-0 on the season.
Cumbie now has a 0.92 ERA in five starts this season.
In addition to Cumbie’s honor, the Cougars swept the conference’s accolades as Connor Wong was named the American Athletic Conference Player of the Week.
Houston is now 18-5 on the season.
