PHILADELPHIA - Fresh off his selection by the Oakland Athletics in the 2012 MLB First-Year Player Draft, Vince Voiro was named All-Big 5 in a vote by the area's head coaches and sports information directors. Voiro was one of three Penn players named All-Big 5, joined by outfielders Greg Zebrack and Ryan Deitrich. Zebrack, a communications major, was also named Academic All-Big 5.
Voiro was 5-3 on the mound for the Quakers this year, with a 2.45 ERA and 59 strikeouts. An honorable mention All-Ivy performer, Voiro was twice named Ivy League Pitcher of the Week and was once honored as Big 5 Pitcher of the Week. Voiro went the distance five times for the Quakers, leading Penn's staff in wins, innings pitched, ERA and strikeouts. On Tuesday, he moved on to the ranks of professional baseball after his 15th-round selection by the Athletics (469th overall).
A first-team All-Ivy outfielder, Zebrack hit .343 for the Quakers while leading the Red and Blue in on-base percentage (.448), slugging percentage (.657), RBI (28), runs (34), stolen bases (10), doubles (18) and home runs (7). He hit safely in 16-of-20 Ivy League games and posted a 10-game hitting streak during the middle portion of the season. His bat was a big reason Penn advanced to its first-ever Liberty Bell Classic title game as he went 3-for-3 with two walks while driving in seven runs against Villanova during a first round game of the Liberty Bell Classic.
Deitrich made his first appearance on an All-Ivy squad this season, earning second-team All-Ivy honors. The outfielder started 39 games for the Quakers, leading the club with a .350 batting average and 49 hits - including an Ivy-best four triples. Deitrich was crucial to Penn's run-producing, scoring 24 runs and driving in 22. In the Liberty Bell Classic semifinal against La Salle, Deitrich went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a home run and four RBI.
