Spring Hill College head baseball coach Frank Sims announced on Thursday morning that outfielder Austyn Jacques from South Forsyth High School in Cumming, Ga., has signed an Athletic Grant in Aid with the Badgers.
Jacques finished his senior season with his team's highest batting average (.353) and was named the program's Offensive Player of the Year. In region games alone, he hit .468 for SFHS head coach Russ Bayer.
In the field, Jacques cut down five base runners at home plate from right field and named 1st team All-Region in Georgia's class 6-A.
"We're very happy to have Austyn join our team," said Sims. "He has a strong arm and is a consistent hitter at the plate. He will fit into our scheme well."
