West High graduate Jordan Devencenzi, Class of 2011 and sophomore catcher for the San Joaquin Delta College Mustang baseball team, finished his season with top conference and state honors.

On May 17, the California Community Colleges Baseball Coaches Association named Devencenzi to the 2013 Northern California All American Team.

He was previously selected as the most valuable player for the Big 8 Conference after the Mustangs went 28-14 overall and 14-10 in the Big 8, finishing third.

The Mustangs got as far as the May 12 championship game of the California Community Colleges Athletic Association Super Regionals, where they were eliminated with a 5-1 loss to Santa Rosa.

Devencenzi led the Mustangs at the plate as he batted .354 over 39 games, including two home runs and 33 RBIs. Defensively, he threw out 34 percent of all base runners trying to steal.

He is headed to University of Nevada, Reno, to play baseball on an athletic scholarship.

Hurlock competed among 26 runners June 1 at Buchanan High School in Clovis.
