Baseball Produces 21 Academic All-Big Ten Honorees

By NU Athletic Communications

The Nebraska baseball team produced 21 Academic All-Big Ten selections when the conference announced its spring honorees on Wednesday.

NU’s 21 selections are the most by the Huskers in a year since joining the Big Ten before the 2012 season. Nebraska’s previous high was 17 honorees in 2012, and the Huskers have never had fewer than 11 make the list in a season. The 2018 total pushes NU to 107 Academic All-Big Ten selections since joining the conference.

Scott Schreiber, Jake McSteen and Reece Eddins each made the list for the third time individually. Schreiber, who earned his degree in mechanized systems management earlier this month, had a 3.31 grade-point average. McSteen holds a 3.63 GPA in supply chain management. Eddins, who is majoring in mechanical engineering, has a 3.56 GPA.

Zack Engelken, Nate Fisher, Ethan Frazier, Alex Henwood, Chad Luensmann, Mitch Steinhoff and Jesse Wilkening each earned honors from the Big Ten for the second time. Engelken and Fisher each earned their degrees from Nebraska earlier this month.

NU’s first-time honorees in 2018 are Joe Acker, Luis Alvarado, Brison Cronenbold, Carter Cross, Connor Curry, Mojo Hagge, Zac Luckey, Zac Repinski, Luke Roskam, Paul Tillotson and Matt Warren.

To be eligible for Academic All-Big Ten selection, students must be on a varsity team, as verified by being on the official squad list as of May 1 for spring sports, who have been enrolled fulltime at the institution for a minimum of 12 months and carry a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or higher.
