Perry, Zamora earn MW All-Tournament honors

Following the conclusion of the Mountain West championships, Nevada junior Daniel Perry and sophomore Joshua Zamora were named to the All-MW Tournament Team. Perry hit .364 with three RBI and a team-high .818 slugging percentage, while Zamora slashed a team-best .385 with five hits and a double in three games.

Nevada made its best run in the tournament since the 2016 season, falling one game short of the championship. After an epic come-from-behind win against San Diego State on Friday, UNLV walked off on the Pack in the ninth inning on Saturday before falling to eventual champion Fresno State 12-6.

In an elimination game against reigning tournament champion SDSU, Perry had his best game of the season as he tallied four hits, two runs scored, two doubles and a home run with two RBI. With his huge performance, Perry helped eliminate an SDSU team that had won five of the last six MW championships.

Zamora tallied at least one hit in all three of Nevada’s games, totaling two in the Pack’s win over the Aztecs. The sophomore led Nevada with a .385 average while accumulating a .462 on-base percentage. Zamora finished the season with a .320 average and a team-high 38 RBI.

Nevada finished the season with 30 wins, the most since it put together 37 in 2016, head coach T.J. Bruce’s first season at the helm. That season saw Nevada’s most success in the MW championships, as it won four games before falling in the championship to New Mexico.
