Snoga signs to play for Incarnate Word - Pat Turner, San Antonio Express-News
Connor Snoga shined in football and baseball at Smithson Valley High School.
Thought the tight end-first baseman enjoyed both sports, baseball was Snoga's favorite. He found a reason to love it even more after signing a scholarship with Incarnate Word.
Incarnate Word had a number of attractions. The school is close to home. His cousin, Robert Moorman, signed to play football for the Cardinals and the academics are to his liking.
But the strongest selling point was the baseball tradition.
“I really like Coach (Danny) Heep,” Snoga said. “Playing for him is going to be awesome. His teams play with a lot of intensity.”
Clabaugh Receives LSC Distinguished Service Award - ENMU Sports
Longtime Eastern New Mexico University Baseball Coach Phil Clabaugh has received the Lone Star Conference Distinguished Service Award for his 20 years and 455 wins with the Greyhounds. The award was presented to Clabaugh at the annual coaches meeting, held on May 3rd.
Clabaugh announced his retirement last month, and finished his coaching career with 552 victories, at both Eastern New Mexico University and Western New Mexico. In 2009, he guided the Hounds to their first-ever appearance in the LSC Championship tournament.
Clabaugh arrived at ENMU in 1992 and revived the dormant baseball program from scratch, building Greyhound field and a team to play on it. The Hounds won 20 games that year and posted a higher winning total in each of his first five years. Four of his players are in the ENMU Athletic Hall of Honors, with standout Dallas McMann set for induction this fall. Clabaugh’s teams produced more than 65 All-Lone Star Conference selections.
Greyhound Field is another prize Clabaugh will leave to Eastern, a facility that has seen numerous improvements during his time as coach. Two years ago, a new fence, giving the facility deeper dimensions, along with better bullpens was set up over the summer. Several years ago, the Greyhounds received their indoor practice facility next to the game field, which enabled the team to work on hitting and fielding during the cold early months of the season.
