SAN BRUNO, Calif. - The West Coast Conference is pleased to announce the 2015 West Coast Conference Baseball All-Academic Team. Six student-athletes make their second straight appearance on the first team.
Four WCC student-athletes on the all-academic squad earned a spot on the 2015 CoSIDA Academic All-District 8 First Team: Pepperdine sophomore Aaron Barnett (Economics), Gonzaga senior Mitchell Gunsolus (Business), BYU senior Dillon Robinson (Economics) and San Diego junior Ben Wylly (Political Science).
David Bigelow, Gunsolus and Joey Harris of Gonzaga, Anthony Villa of Saint Mary's and Christian Cecilio of San Francisco joined Robinson as multi-year recipients for academic achievement. Pacific's Cory Popham maintained a perfect 4.0 cumulative GPA as a graduate student in Sport Science.
All told, seven West Coast Conference baseball student-athletes posted a cumulative GPA of 3.75 or better and 17 posted a GPA of 3.50 or better.
At the conclusion of each athletic season, the WCC selects an all-academic squad for each WCC-sponsored sport. To be considered, a student-athlete must maintain at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average, while also being a significant contributor to his team. No fewer than 34 WCC student-athletes met the academic criteria for baseball.
