Adkins, Meekins earn South All-Region Honors

MINNEAPOLIS – The organization released its 2019 All-South Region teams on Thursday afternoon, and both Jimmy Adkins and Justin Meekins were recognized for their play during the 2019 season.

Adkins was named to the Second Team All-South Region as a starting pitcher. It marks the first time in the sophomore's career receiving all-region honors after compiling a 5-2 record in 17 appearance, including two saves. Adkins struck out 61 total batters through 83 innings of work in 2019 that included three complete games. One of those complete games came via a shutout performance on the road against then No. 1 Christopher Newport University back on April 7.

Meekins was named Third Team All-South Region, marking the second straight year the junior has received all-region honors from the organization. Despite battling injuries early in the season, Meekins managed to compile .378 batting average to go along with 45 hits, 29 runs, and 27 RBI. He also led the team with five home runs and ranked second among all Sea Gulls with 14 stolen bases.
