This season, Bryant is leading the nation in home runs (30), slugging percentage (.876), runs scored (72) and is tied for the nation's lead in walks with 51.

Conlon became the first freshman in USD history to post a 9-0 record. Conlon has made 23 appearances with eight starts, and has moved himself into the Friday starter in the Torero rotation. In WCC play, Conlon posted a 6-0 record with a 1.28 ERA in 49.1 innings of work, including one complete game.

Joe, a 6-0 sophomore from Poway, Calif., takes home his first All-WCC first-team accolade after hitting .322 with 65 hits, 11 doubles, seven home runs and 40 RBI.

Robinson, a 6-1 senior from Peoria, Ariz., takes home his first All-WCC first-team selection, after leading the team in hitting with a .339 batting average, while recording 56 hits, eight doubles, five triple, one home run and 27 RBI while playing right field. In WCC action, Robinson hit .397 with 27 hits, five doubles, two triples, one home run and 13 RBI.

Green, a 6-2 redshirt senior from San Diego, had a great final season as a Torero.

In WCC action, Green .344 with 22 hits, six doubles, three home runs, and 19 RBI. Overall, Green hit .280 with 40 hits, 11 doubles, five home runs and 31 RBI.
