Southwest head baseball coach Johnny Ray has announced the signing of two players from Horn Lake (MS) High School.

Brett Jenne, a left-handed pitcher and outfielder, batted .511 as a senior with two home runs, 16 runs batted in, and 18 stolen bases. An All-Chickasaw Conference selection this spring at Horn Lake, Jenne previously played at Cordova High School, where he was named All-District, All-Region and All-Metro his junior year. He was Cordova’s top hitter in 2003 with a .429 average, 17 doubles, 5 triples, 37 runs scored, and 28 RBI. As a pitcher, Jenne posted a 4-2 record with 53 strikeouts and 38 innings and allowed opponents to bat only .140 against him.

Ivan Nails, a right-handed pitcher and infielder, batted .386 with 18 RBI and 11 stolen bases. As a pitcher, Nails had a 1-4 record with two saves, a 3.11 earned run average, and struck out 35 batters in 36-2/3 innings of work.

“Both players are very talented and will have a chance to help us immediately,” said Ray. “They come from a solid baseball program and know what it takes to win.”
