Vinson collected hits in five of six games over the weekend while drawing six walks for a .542 on-base percentage.

Midwestern State competes in West Texas A&M's Woodward Invitational Friday, Saturday and Sunday in Canyon. The Mustangs open tournament play Friday with games against Metropolitan State (Colo.) and Chadron State (Neb.) at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m., respectively.

Former City View HS star Lacey Taylor of West Texas A&M was also named to the same all-tournament team Thursday, after hitting .571 over five games in Arizona.
