University of Hawaii second baseman Kolten Wong was named to the 2011 Perfect Game College Baseball All-America Team.
The announcement came Thursday by Perfect Game USA. Wong received his third All-America team selection this season, and second first-team honor.

This season, he started all 59 games and led the Rainbows (34-25) with a .378 batting average, 42 walks, 53 RBIs and seven home runs.
Wong also led the Western Athletic Conference with 23 stolen bases, ranked third in on-base percentage (.492) and fourth in slugging percentage (.560). He was named All-WAC for the third time.
