Vista Murrieta graduate Joven Afenir recently set a school record for the University of Kansas baseball team by reaching base nine consecutive times.

The sophomore outfielder had four consecutive hits in a 15-5 victory over Oregon State Feb. 22, then had three more hits and two walks in a 15-2 win over Chicago State Feb. 26. His seven consecutive hits was also a school record.

"I'm seeing the ball really well right now," Afenir said in a game recap on the Kansas website. "(Assistant coach) Ritchie Price worked with me on a few things in batting practice a few games ago and it is really working for me. It has been a big confidence booster."

Afenir is hitting .353 for the Jayhawks. He also contributed to a rally with a single in Kansas' 6-4 win over Northeastern on Saturday.
