Marrett, Bierley Named to All-America Team

Pepperdine University outfielder Brad Bierley and pitcher Scott Marrett were named to Baseball America's 1985 All-America team.

Bierley led Pepperdine with a .354 batting average as he slugged a school-record 27 home runs and drove in 76 runs. Bierley was the Minnesota Twins' fifth-round draft choice. He is playing in Visalia, a California League team.

Marrett, named the West Coast Athletic Conference's pitcher of the year, was 15-0 with a 2.08 earned-run average. The California Angels drafted him in the fourth round, and he has been assigned to their California League team in Redwood.

Pepperdine, champion of the West Coast Athletic Conference, finished the season at 52-15-1. Baseball American ranked the Waves No. 8 nationally. Coach Dave Gorrie's Waves were defeated by Stanford, 7-1, in the championship game of the West I Regional.

Moglia to Play Football for Coast Guard

Peter Moglia, a former all-league football player at Chaminade High, has been appointed to the U. S. Coast Guard Academy and will play on the school's football team.

"Peter has the ability to make an immediate contribution to our receiving corps and our kicking game," Coach Bob Campiglia said. "We are looking forward to having him in our program."

At Chaminade, Moglia earned all-league honors in three sports--football, soccer and baseball--and received Chaminade's athlete of the year award.
