Four members of the BYU baseball team, outfielders Jaycob Brugman and Jacob Hannemann, and infielders Adam Law and Brock Whitney, were named to the All-West Coast Conference squad.

Hannemann was also named WCC Freshman of the Year. Hannemann was one of two freshmen on the All-WCC squad and was also named to the 10-member All-WCC Freshman team along with teammate Hayden Nielsen, a shortstop.

"I'm extremely happy for all of our players who were recognized for their tremendous seasons," BYU coach Mike Littlewood said. "Adam, Brock and Jaycob stepped up this year and carried us at times. Each one of them has consistently gotten timely hits, played great defense, and were a stabilizing force for our team. This team would not have had the success it's had without each one of these guys rising to the occasion."

Nielsen also joined two teammates for honorable mention All-WCC: relief pitcher Matt Milke and Desmond Poulson.
