Capping off a successful year for Houston baseball, three members of the Cougars were selected within the first eight rounds of the 2015 MLB First-Year Player Draft on Tuesday.

Highlighting the day was junior Jake Lemoine, who was taken highest, in the fourth round by the Texas Rangers.

Following Lemoine, fellow junior pitcher, Patrick Weigel, was taken in the seventh round by the Atlanta Braves.

Rounding out the day for the Cougars in the draft was junior outfielder Kyle Survance, who was selected by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the eighth round.

The last time Houston had three or more players drafted in the first ten rounds was in 2003, when five Cougars went on the first day.

The draft will close on Wednesday with rounds 11-40.
