Henderlite Named VaSID First-Team All-State

NEWPORT NEWS, VA – The Virginia Sports Information Directors released their All-State College Division team today and Lynchburg baseball sophomore Martin Henderlite found himself on the first-team.

Christopher Newport University's Austin Chrismon was named State Pitcher of the Year while teammate Justin Weaver was Player of the Year. Randolph-Macon College's Mitchell Keeler was named Rookie of the Year while his coach, Ray Hedrick was named State Coach of the Year.

Henderlite put together one of the best single-season pitching efforts in recent memory for the baseball team. Martin's 1.12 ERA led the Old Dominion Athletic Conference and was less than half of the next lowest (2.27). Henderlite also led the conference with eight wins, two more than the second place finisher, while striking out 55 batters.

The 2013 ODAC Pitcher of the Year had a 0.94 ERA in the conference, due in part to a 25 consecutive inning scoreless streak that spanned four starts. On the year, Henderlite allowed a miniscule five earned runs in conference play.
