June 1, 2005
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Washington State senior Brady Everett was named to the All-Pacific-10 first team Monday as Commissioner Tom Hansen announced the 2005 Pac-10 baseball honors. Cougars Jay Miller, Jeff Miller and Dane Renkert also received honorable mention recognition.
Everett (Federal Way, Wash.) led all Cougar regulars with a .337 batting average and led the team in runs batted in (62), runs scored (50) and home runs (15). The senior catcher started 57 games for WSU, collecting 70 hits, including a team-high 18-game hitting streak early in the season. Everett spent a year at Edmonds Community College and two years at Clemson before finishing his collegiate career at WSU.
'Definitely a well deserved honor for Brady,' said WSU Head Baseball Coach Donnie Marbut. 'He came out and put up great numbers in a tough season. We leaned on him all year and he was productive from day one.'
Jay Miller (Bellevue, Wash.) started all 58 games in the outfield for the Cougars and ended the season with a .322 batting average. The three-time honorable mention honoree led the team with 74 hits, including 12 doubles and three home runs.
Renkert (Bellingham, Wash.) led the team with a school record 30 appearances and ranks seventh on the single-season saves list with five. The senior hurler finished his WSU career with an earned run average of 5.15 and a 2-3 record.
Jeff Miller (Bellevue, Wash.) made 57 starts in the Cougar infield, posting a .282 batting average with 59 hits and 40 RBI. Miller recorded a team-high five RBI against Portland March 4.
'You won't find harder workers than the Miller brothers,' Marbut said. 'Jeff had a productive season and Jay is always solid. Renkert also put in quality work and we called on him a lot in tough situations.'
