Huston a native of Greeley, Colorado will play in the Big East Conference next season for Coach Brian Cleary and the University of Cincinnati. The Bearcats finished the season 29-29 last season and will undoubtedly benefit from having Hustonís bat in their lineup next season. The sophomore outfielder hit a team hit .417 this season for the Saints while lacing 13 doubles, 3 triples, and 4 home runs while producing an OPS of over 1.000. Martinez finished his Seward career having played in 93 games and compiling a .285 batting average. He drove in 47 runs in his two seasons with the Saints and smashed out 28 extra base hits. He will head South to Corpus Christi where he will play for the Islanders next season at Texas A&M Corpus Christi next season in the Southland Conference. Schultz will head to NAIA power University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma next season. He will join a Drovers team who won a school record 37 games in 2008 and broke 23 USAO records. Head Coach Mike Ross will welcome Schultz in his first season after replacing legendary coach LJ Powell who retired after 12 years with USAO.
