MORGANTOWN, W.Va – The accolades continue to roll in for All-American JJ Wetherholt.

He was named the second baseman on the Lexington All-Region Team. The team was voted on by media members in attendance at the regional. The sophomore is the only player on the all-tournament team who does not hail from Indiana or Kentucky, the regional finalists.

In three games, Wetherholt hit .538 with a home run, two doubles, four RBI, and a stolen base. He also made some great plays defensively, registering a 1.000 fielding percentage.

After just one hit in the opener vs. Indiana, Wetherholt’s bat exploded in the elimination game against Ball State. He knocked three hits and four RBI, including a three-run home run in the third inning to give WVU its first lead. It was his 16th homer of the season.

He was the only Mountaineer with a multi-hit game vs. Kentucky on Sunday. His double in the 8th inning was his 101st hit of the season which tied the single-season record.

Wetherholt ended the season with a .449 batting average after a 7-for-13 showing in the Lexington Regional.
