University of Southern Maine junior Jake Dexter was named Wednesday to the All-American first team as a utility player.

Dexter, a second baseman and relief pitcher, is the 10th USM player to earn All-America recognition from since 2007. His older brother, Sam, was a two-time All-American and was the Division III player of the year in 2015.

Dexter batted .382 with 13 doubles, one triple, three home runs and 30 RBI. He made 25 appearances on the mound, compiling a 5-4 record with a school record 13 saves and a 2.44 ERA. The right-hander struck out 47 in a career-high 441/3 innings.

Dexter, who was also named Little East Conference Player of the Year, led Southern Maine to a 30-15 record and an appearance in the championship round of the NCAA Division III New York Regional.
