Levin Named to Daktronics All-West Region Second Team

Posted: Updated:
ELLENSBURG, Wash. -- Central Washington University junior Tyler Levin (Everett, Wash.) has been named to the Daktronics Division II Baseball All-West Region second team.

The right-hander, who earlier this week was named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Year, finished his first season in the Crimson and Black with a 10-2 record and 3.35 earned-run average. He was one of just six pitchers in the NCAA Division II West Region to win 10 games in the regular season, and his victory total was the most by a Wildcat pitcher since Scott Earle set a school record with 12 wins in 1999.

In addition to his 10 wins, which led the GNAC, Levin was also tops in the conference with 67 strikeouts and ranked third in ERA. He also walked just 10 batters in 86 innings this season.

Additional all-region honors, from both the National Collegiate Baseball Writers' Association (NCBWA) and the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) are expected within the next week.
