Baseball Banquet - Celebration of New Era
Wednesday, May 16, 2018 01:16

ODESSA, TX - The annual Permian Baseball Banquet was held on Tuesday evening. It was a celebration of the achievements of the 2018 season under Mojo first year head coach Tate Criswell and his staff.

guerreroThe banquet began with booster club president Casey Sullivan greeting all in attendance and recognizing the officers and members of the baseball booster club. Manny Carrasco provided an inspiring invocation, followed by the serving of food cated by Big Daddy's.

Saul Bustos and Chad Dunavan were the night's guest speakers.  Bustos, a Mojo graduate and former player, was an All-American at Texas Tech and also played at Odessa College. He was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in 1994. Bustos was later traded to the Montreal Expos before continuing a successful career in the Minors. Dunavan also played Minor League ball. He was drafted by the Houston Astros in 1991 but chose to continue his education at Howard College. Dunavan was then drafted by the Seattle Mariners two years later.

For the first time in several years, the Permian Varsity finished the season with a winning record at 23-14 and 8-7 in district. The Panthers played three post-season games, a first since 2011, and represented 2-6A as the district's second seed.  JV Black finished the year with a 13-12 record, while JV White turned in an impressive 18-4 mark.

The three head coaches introduced their teams. Blake Monk asked his JV White team to come to the front, and Ron King followed with JV Black. Teo Banks was recognized as JV White's Most Valuable Player. Jordan Muschalek and Pilar Ramirez shared the MVP honors from JV Black.

Coach Criswell introduced the Black Pack Attack Varsity individually, starting with the six soon to be graduating seniors - Nick Chavez, Seth Hidgon, Peyton Hutson, Nate Kizziar, Christian LaChance, and Zane Murphy. Junior DH and first baseman Tanner Adams was recognized as the Offensive Most Valuable and received the Top QAB% award. Sophomore catcher Taylor Sullivan was recipient of the Defensive MVP honor. Higdon was named Pitcher of the Year.

Coach Criswell concluded with handing out two unique Mojo Baseball awards. Caden Bedrick and Manny Guerrero were named "Top Dirt Bags". Chavez, Kizziar, and Murphy shared the "B.A.T. of the Year" award.  Ol' T-Dawg received an autographed baseball from the Varsity, a tradition that is celebrating its 10th year.

This year's event committee outdid themselves and were comprised of: Lori Beltran, Amy Balerio, Ann Beaver, Tanya Bedrick, Hollie Carrasco, Brenda Guerrero, Zulma Ramirez, Kim Register, and Melissa Vega.
