A freshman out of Panola College, Juengel will be transferring to Texas A&M.

The defending champion McKinney Marshals have a dominating presence on the mound in Myers, who is 1-0 without allowing a run in three appearances this season. Myers leads the league with 21 strikeouts in just nine innings while walking five, and he’s held opposing hitters to a .206 average.
