Portland Pilots pitchers Chad Kjemhus and Jackson Lockwood and outfielder Chet Thompson have been named to the 2014 West Coast Conference Baseball All-Academic Team. Portland junior infielders Cody Lenahan and Caleb Whalen each nabbed all-academic honorable mention, giving the Pilots a total of five players honored by the WCC. Kjemhus, who also earned All-WCC Honorable Mention, graduated in May with a degree in marketing and a cumulative grade point average of 3.42. Thompson, also a senior who graduated last month with a 3.62 GPA, earned a mathematics degree while minoring in economics. He earned conference all-academic honors as a junior as well. Lockwood is a sophomore with a 3.48 GPA and is working towards a business degree. Both Lenahan and Whalen are marketing majors with GPAs of 3.30 and 3.27, respectively. Lenahan and Whalen both landed on the WCC’s 2013 All-Academic Team as sophomores last season.
At the conclusion of each athletic season, the WCC selects an all-academic squad for each WCC-sponsored sport. To be considered, a student-athlete must maintain at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average, while also being a significant contributor to his team.
