Recently announced by both the Golden State Athletic Conference and the NAIA, Brandon Dietzman and Wyatt Nebe of Menlo Baseball have been named scholar athletes. With both having just completed their senior seasons and met the transfer requirement for both awards, this marks the first time in each of their careers that they have been named GSAC/Daktronics-NAIA Scholar Athletes.

In order to qualify, a student athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status to qualify for the honor.

Dietzman has been one of the most utilized backend relief pitchers on the Menlo staff for the past two seasons. Spending some time as a closer this year for the Oaks, Dietzman picked up a pair of saves across his 17 appearances, tied for the most on the team. He began the season in dominating fashion, allowing just two earned runs in his first seven innings (across seven outings), and pitched scoreless ball in 10 of his first 12 appearances.

Dietzman finishes his Menlo career with a 3.63 grade point average and graduated with a degree in finance.

Nebe came on strong for the Oaks at the plate and behind it as well during his senior season, solidifying himself as the everyday catcher. He improved his average to .281 across 28 games, including his first two home runs as an Oak, which both came in the month of April. Behind the plate, Nebe threw out 14 runners trying to steal, and did not make a single error during the entire year. Not only did his 3.63 grade point average in accounting help him become a scholar-athlete, but he was awarded Menlo's Collis Steer transfer award for highest GPA among transfer student athletes
