BELTON- The final awards of the 2022 baseball season were announced by D3baseball.com on Tuesday, as the nationally-renowned website released its All-Region teams, which included two Crusaders in Malek Bolin and Caimyn Holiday.
BELTON- Caimyn Holiday is certainly one of the most recognizable figures on the UMHB baseball team.

BELTON- There are times when moments in sports seem to play out in exactly the way they should happen.

BELTON- After losing last Thursday’s duel at LeTourneau in extra innings, the UMHB baseball team made sure it did not let another tight one slip away.
LONGVIEW- Tried and tested on a short week, the UMHB baseball team dropped a road series at LeTourneau, but managed to rally for a game three victory, doing enough to remain in fourth place in the ASC standings with an even 12-12 record.
BELTON- In a competitive series against the ASC’s first-place team, UMHB remained in step with ETBU, and claimed a one-run victory in the series finale on Saturday afternoon.
The Crusaders are now 14-12 overall, 8-10 in ASC play, with 14 games left on the schedule.
