Three baseball players and three softball players from Cal State Dominguez Hills have received Division II All-Western Regional honors.
Senior pitcher Rick Davis, who led the nation in strikeouts, was voted to the first team, as were softball players Maria Romero and Jennifer Boen.
Second-team honors went to a pair of seniors, baseball third baseman Ruben Jauregui and softball pitcher Denise Biller. Rob Campbell, a junior center fielder, received honorable mention.
Davis, a right-hander, posted a 7-7 record on a team that finished in last place in the California Collegiate Athletic Assn. (16-29-2). But his 171 strikeouts led the nation and broke a 19-year CCAA record. He was drafted Monday by the San Diego Padres in the seventh round. Davis, who played shortstop as a junior, completed 11 games with three shutouts.
Romero, a junior outfielder, set a school record with 27 runs batted in. Boen, a freshman utility player, drove in 18 runs and was 4-1 as a pitcher. She posted an 0.40 earned-run average, which helped the Lady Toros advance to the Western Regional Tournament on the strength of the school's best record (35-22-1).
Despite an injury-plagued season, Jauregui batted .340 with five home runs and 24 RBIs. The fleet Campbell led Toro starters with a .352 average, .445 on-base percentage, 12 stolen bases and five assists from the outfield.
Biller, a right-hander, was 15-11 with a 0.63 ERA.
