NEWBERG --- The 2019 D3baseball.com All-Region teams were announced on Wednesday, as junior Matt Voelzke grabbed a spot as a second-team selection on the All-West Region team.

This year marks the eighth season that D3baseball.com has named All-Region teams, with more than 800 players nominated.

This marks the third straight season Voelzke has earned a spot on the All-West Region team. Last season, Voelzke was named as a first-team selection and his freshman year he became the first Bruin to earn D3baseball.com Rookie of the Year.

Voelzke, a junior utility player from Lake Oswego, Oregon, recorded his third straight All-NWC honor this season. The junior shortstop was the top hitter for the Bruins this season, leading the team in hits (52), runs scored (38), and was tied for first in home runs (5). On the mound, the right-hander worked 30.1 innings of relief in 18 appearances with a 2-2 record, a team-high seven saves, and 40 strikeouts to go with his 2.97 ERA. He is the all-time record holder in career saves (22) and single-season saves (10).
