B-U’s Cameron Tenney honored with the John L. Tenney Memorial Baseball Award

TENNERTON – Cameron Tenney was named the 2022 winner of the John L. Tenney Memorial Baseball Award which is presented annually to a Buckhannon-Upshur High School senior baseball player who displays athletic ability, character and leadership skills.

It was the 14th year the award has been presented and is selected by members of the Buckhannon-Upshur baseball coaching staff.

The award is named in honor of John L. Tenney, father of long-time Buckhannon-Upshur head baseball coach Mickey Tenney and long-time West Virginia Wesleyan head baseball coach Randy Tenney.

Mickey Tenney presented the award to Tenney during a ceremony at William E. Phillips Memorial Field Friday afternoon.

“This is a very special award to win,” Cameron Tenney said. “To know I came out and did my best over the last four years and to be honored with this award is special coming from such a baseball family like the Tenneys. I appreciate my coaches nominating me for this award as well. They pushed me to be the best player I could be. I enjoyed my four years playing at Buckhannon-Upshur. The coaches helped me tremendously and I love my teammates, every single one of them.”

During his senior season, Tenney collected 35 hits in 90 at-bats for an impressive 389 batting average which was second on the team.

The senior second baseman also had nine extra-base hits, scored 23 runs and drove in 20 runs in 29 games.

“It was a tough decision to make this year,” noted Buckhannon-Upshur head coach Adam Squires. “We had two seniors this year that were really deserving of the award. It really came down to Cameron’s character and his academics. I couldn’t ask for a better senior leader than what Cameron provided for us.”

A plaque honoring the past winners of the John L. Tenney Award, and now with Tenney’s name on it, resides inside of Buckhannon-Upshur High School.
