The NWAC announced the North Region All-Stars and Gold Glove awards over the weekend and 3 Phins were honored. Sophomore Pete Pennylegion made the North Region All-Stars 2nd Team as an Infielder and was recognized for his work in the field with a Gold Glove. Pennylegion hit .326 on the season and was second on the team with 46 hits and 25 runs scored. He was even better in the field where Pennylegion only had 1 error in 34 games at Second Base.
Two freshman Phins joined Pennylegion on the North Region All-Stars 2nd team. David Becker was honored as an infielder after a strong season where he hit .338 and led the Phins with 50 hits, 14 doubles, and 25 RBIs. Chantz Justice was named to the 2nd Team as an outfielder.
