Liles Voted onto CoSIDA All-District Academic Team
MARSHALL, Texas – Named one of the top academic softball players in the West Region, senior Lacy Liles (Elysian Fields, Texas) was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District first-team for her grades and athletic awards. This is the fourth year in a row that ETBU has had a player named academic all-district.
“This is a well-earned award by Lacy as she was voted the top second baseman in the region academically,” says ETBU Director of Sports Information Adam P. Ledyard. “Earning this award is very hard with the competition in such a large region. It’s always an honor to have a player named to the CoSIDA all-district team.”
There are 21 states in the West Region and Canada that have NCAA Division III programs where players were nominated from. The first team has only 13 players selected as five were selected for the infield.
Liles carries a grade point average of 3.8 as a business major, is a two-time All-ASC first-team selection, a NFCA All-American second-team selection, and a three-time ASC hitter of the week. She helped ETBU to the 2013 ASC tournament championship and to two straight NCAA Division III tournament appearances.
The First-team Academic All-District® honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.
