Bend Elks starting pitcher Kris Jackson was named to the all-West Coast League first team announced Monday, and Elks infielder Collin Runge was named to the second team.
Jackson, a senior at Corban University in Salem, went 6-3 in 10 starts for the Elks this season. His 2.43 ERA was second-best among qualifying WCL pitchers, and he struck out 49 batters in 63 innings while holding opponents to a .242 batting average. Jackson is the lone player on the 16-man first team to not play for an NCAA Division I school.
Runge, a junior second baseman who will play at the University of Portland next year, hit .315 in 40 games with three home runs and seven RBIs. A product of Redmond’s Ridgeview High, Runge tied with teammate Matt Kroon for the league lead in stolen bases with 17.
Elks receiving honorable mention were infielders Charlie Maxwell (Northwestern) and Kroon (Oklahoma State), catcher Cal Waterman (Summit High, Washington State), outfielder Derek Chapman (Washington State) and pitcher Grant Larson (Chico State).
