Pepperdine’s Aaron Barnett was named to the Collegiate Baseball Freshman All-American team on Wednesday, June 4.

The Waves’ first-year catcher was one of five catchers named to the national list.

Barnett led the team with a .373 average over the course of the regular season, amassing 27 RBI, five doubles and one triple. He was the toughest hitter on the team to strikeout during the regular season, recording just nine strikeouts in 190 at bats.

Barnett was named to the All-WCC freshman team and was All-WCC honorable mention in his first season with the program. He also earned WCC Player of the Week on the final week of the season, helping the Waves clinch the regular-season WCC title.

He has played 57 of 58 games for Pepperdine this season, helping the team to a 42-16 record and a berth in the NCAA Super Regional.
