BYU baseball players Dillon Robinson and Brennon Lund were selected to the All-West Coast Conference first team.

Robinson battled through two separate ankle injuries that caused him to miss 14 games during the season. Despite the injuries he was still able to lead the team with a .369 batting average. Robinson, a junior from Pleasant Grove, had two game-winning RBI in BYU’s final three games. He was also named to the Capital One Academic All-District VIII team.

“Dillon really stepped up this year, fought through a couple injuries and became a force in our lineup,” said BYU coach Mike Littlewood.

Lund, a freshman outfielder from South Jordan, was one of four freshmen named to the 25-member first team. He was the only Cougar named to the WCC All-Freshman team.

“Brennon just got better and better as the season progressed. He did a great job in the lead-off spot for us, and I‘m glad his performance was recognized by the coaches in the league,” Littlewood said.

Lund had two separate hitting streaks of 10 games this season, helping him hit .303. He led the team in stolen bases and steal attempts and second in runs scored.

Cougar first baseman Brock Whitney was named to the WCC honorable-mention category, along with catcher Jarrett Jarvis and Jeff Barker. Whitney and Jarvis were amongst the team leaders in hits and batting average. Baker tied for the team lead with wins. Whitney was the only senior among those who were named to any of the all-conference teams.
