Holliday's Sadberry Takes Big 12 Honor

Posted: Updated:

Former Holliday Eagle star Chris Sadberry is now the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week!

He's in his first season at Texas Tech, and Sunday he led the Red Raiders to a 2-1 win over Rice in the Houston College Classic at Minute Maid Park. It was Tech's first win over their in-state rival since 1996!

The redshirt junior held the tenth-ranked Owls to one, unearned run in seven innings, striking out two and allowing just five hits to improve to 2-0 with a 1.76 earned run average in three starts.

At Holliday, he helped lead the Eagles to the state title game in his junior year in 2009 and was named first-team All-State in both his junior and senior seasons.

He signed with Louisiana Tech, sitting out 2011 with a medical redshirt, then playing in 2012 before transferring to Grayson County College and starring there in 2013.
