BEREA, OHIO -- Two Baldwin Wallace University baseball standouts, junior righthanded closer Jon Tenley (Wadsworth) and junior outfielder Brendan Toughey (East Amherst, N.Y./ St. Joseph’s Collegiate), have been named to the 2012 d3baseball.com All-Mideast Region team (www.d3baseball.com). Tenley was a second-team pick and Toughey made the third-team.  The duo played critical roles as the Yellow Jackets set a school record with 27 victories and compiled a 27-13 overall record.

Tenley set the BW single-season save record with seven this season. He compiled an 0-3 record with a 4.88 earned run average and struck out 24 batters in 24 innings pitched. He appeared in 17 games and only allowed opponents to bat .231 against him. For his career, Tenley has a 1-5 record in 30 appearances with a BW career-record 11 saves with 32 whiffs in 41 and one-third innings pitched.


Toughey played in and started all 40 games, was second on the team in batting average (.377/ 57-for-151) and doubles (10). He also set a school single-season record for runs scored (53), led the team in base hits (57), walks drawn (21), stolen bases (23-for-23) and on-base average (.458). For his career, Toughey is hitting .326 (95-for-291) with 87 runs scored, 18 doubles, two triples, a homerun, 37 RBI and is a perfect 34-for-34 in stolen base attempts. For his efforts this season, he was named second-team All-Ohio Athletic Conference. In addition and in the classroom, Toughey was named as a first-team CAPITAL ONE Academic All-District 7 selection and advanced to the national CAPITAL ONE Academic All-America ballot.


“Both Jon and Brendan played a significant role in our success this season,” said second-year head coach Brian Harrison. “Jon was our stopper and set school records for saves in a season and for a career. Brendan was a leader in our outfield and is a young man who you can count on day-in and day-out. He has outstanding talent and desire. He is an excellent role model for our younger student-athletes to emulate.  We are extremely proud of both Jon and Brendan and look forward to having them back again as team leaders.”
