The Big Ten Conference announced its all-conference team and individual awards on Tuesday.
Nebraska had two players selected as second-team honorees. Senior infielder Scott Schreiber and junior catcher/designated hitter Jesse Wilkening each earned second-team honors from the conference.
Freshmen Jaxon Hallmark and Gunner Hellstrom each made the All-Freshman Team. Sophomore Mojo Hagge captured Nebraska’s Big Ten Sportsmanship Award.
Schreiber, who was named one of 25 semifinalists for the Golden Spikes Award on Monday, achieved All-Big Ten status for the third straight year after making the first team in both 2016 and 2017.
Schreiber led the Big Ten this season in runs scored (62) and tied for first in the league in hits (79). He ranked second in home runs (18), and his .369 batting average ranked sixth in the Big Ten.
Wilkening, who’s been on the Johnny Bench Award Watch List each of the last two seasons, led the Huskers with a .372 batting average, which ranked fourth in the Big Ten.
He ranked second in the Big Ten in RBIs (56) and fourth in hits (74). This is Wilkening’s first time earning all-conference honors.
Hallmark started 50 of Nebraska’s 52 games in 2018, and batted .261 with two doubles, two triples and a home run. He went 7-for-7 stealing bases to lead the Huskers in that category this season.
Hellstrom, who made 19 starts and 26 appearances altogether, batted .310 with 22 hits, 13 RBIs, five runs scored and one double.
The Huskers ended their season with a 24-28 record overall and an 8-14 mark in Big Ten play. Nebraska finished 10th in the Big Ten regular season standings, and missed qualifying for the Big Ten Tournament for the first time since joining the conference.
Nebraska’s 28 wins were its fewest as a program since 1998.
