Stemp earns All Pac-12 honors, Hamilton and Walker receive honorable mention nods

New, comment

Stemp hit .355 this year and tied for second in the conference with 12 stolen bases.

Even though they're in the middle of their rebuild, the Washington State baseball team earns some well-deserved all-conference kudos to end the season. Trek Stemp lead the way, earning All Pac-12 honors as voted on by the conference, the school announced today. Pitchers Ian Hamilton and Ryan Walker were also recognized, each earning an All Pac-12 Honorable Mention.

Stemp, a redshirt junior from Kennewick, finished 5th in the conference with a .355 batting average and tied for second in steals with a dozen. Stemp racked up these impressive totals despite missing the final nine games with a, uh, rather painful injury.

Stemp also had 17 multi-hit games and three games in which he posted four hits. Meanwhile, Ryan Walker had himself an excellenet year in the starting rotation. The sophomore from Arlington went 6-3 with a 2.40 ERA and only issued 25 walks in 63.2 innings pitched. Hamilton's first year as a starter after spending his career as a closer was a struggle but still good enough for an honorable mention. He went 2-10 with a 4.86 ERA and 62 strikeouts.

WSU finished 19-35 on the season, well off their 29-27 pace from a year ago but both seasons saw identical conference records at 11-19.
