WCC CHAMPIONSHIP CENTRAL

SAN BRUNO, Calif. -- The West Coast Conference is pleased to announce the 2017 West Coast Conference Baseball All-Academic Team. 

Four WCC student-athletes on the all-academic squad earned a spot on the 2017 CoSIDA Academic All-District 8 First Team: Pepperdine seniors Aaron Barnett (Economics) and Matt Crowder (Economics) and Gonzaga senior Sam Brown (Physical Education) and sophomore Daniel Fredrickson (Mechanical Engineering). 

Barnett (third) and Crowder (second) are multi-year recipients for academic achievement on both the All-District and All-WCC academic squads. Two Pacific junior student-athletes Cooper Casad (Sport Management) and Matthew Tarantino (Business Administration) maintained perfect 4.0 cumulative GPAs. 

All told, seven West Coast Conference baseball student-athletes posted a cumulative GPA of 3.75 or better and 15 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 40 WCC student-athletes met the academic criteria for baseball.
