Reed, a sophomore left-handed pitcher/first baseman, was named All-SEC first team as the designated hitter and utility player. Cousino earned All-SEC Defensive Team honors for the second straight year and Barrett and Fettes were named to the All-SEC Freshman Team, with Barrett in the outfield and Fettes the All-SEC Freshman Team catcher.
Reed is the first UK player to earn first-team All-SEC honors since Thomas McCarthy in 2011. He is the first UK player to earn first-team honors as the designated hitter since Brad Hindersman in 1993.
Barrett and Fettes earned Freshman All-SEC honors, joining Reed (2012), Cousino (2012), Ryan Wilkes (2005) and Antone DeJesus (2005) as UK players to earn conference All-Freshman accolades. Fettes is the first UK catcher to earn All-SEC Freshman honors in program history.
Cousino was named to the All-SEC Defensive Team for the second consecutive year, as the UK sophomore earned SEC Freshman of the Year, second-team All-SEC and All-SEC Defensive Team a season ago.
A native of Terre Haute, Ind., Reed served as UK’s Friday-night starter on the mound in 2013 and hit No. 3 or No. 4 in the batting order throughout the year. A 6-foot-4, 245-pounder, Reed hit .280 (60-for-214) at the plate with eight doubles, two triples, 13 homers and 52 RBI. On the mound, Reed had a 2-8 record and a 4.04 ERA in 82.1 innings, walking just 15 and striking out 52. In his two-year career, Reed has hit .290 with 17 doubles, two triples, 17 homers and driven in 92 RBI. On the mound in his career, Reed has a 7-11 record and a 3.44 ERA in 136 innings, walking 24 and striking out 103.
Cousino, a native of Dublin, Ohio, manned centerfield for the Wildcats in 2013, making 127 putouts, a year removed from a school-record 142 putouts in 2012. In 2013, Cousino hit .249 (52-for-209) with 12 doubles, one triple, six homers and 27 RBI, stealing 14 bases. In his two-year career, Cousino has hit .288 (135-for-469) with 32 doubles, three triples, 15 homers and 68 RBI, stealing 29 bases.
A native of Douglasville, Ga., Barrett stepped into the UK lineup and led the Wildcats in hitting, owning the 10th-best average in the SEC and ranking second among league rookies, behind only LSU shortstop and SEC Freshman of the Year, Alex Bregman. Barrett hit .349 (51-for-146) with four doubles, one triple, 14 RBI and four steals.
Fettes, a native of Madison Heights, Mich., emerged as one of the top freshmen in college baseball while sharing time behind the plate in 2013. A 6-2, 225-pound right-handed hitter, Fettes batted .250 in 23 games and 19 starts, belting five doubles, three homers and nine RBI. Of his first 15 career hits, eight came as extra-base knocks. His three homers all came in SEC play and were clutch hits, at No. 14 South Carolina, at No. 16 Ole Miss and vs. No. 14 Arkansas.
The Wildcats completed a 30-win season with back-to-back trips to the SEC Tournament for the first time since 1998-99. UK ranked eighth in the NCAA with 13 wins against top-50 RPI teams and played the third-most games against top-50 RPI teams in college baseball.
