SANTA CLARA, Calif. – With the season finishing this weekend, Santa Clara baseball had two players named to the West Coast Conference All-Academic team on Friday. Junior Zach Looney was honored for his 3.31 GPA in Civil Engineering while junior Peter Summerville was honorable mention.
Santa Clara wraps-up the season with three games at LMU May 17-19. Games times will be 3 p.m., 2 p.m. and 1 p.m.
"I am very proud of these two guys for getting it done in the classroom during a tremendously rigorous college baseball season," said Santa Clara head coach Dan O'Brien.
