Three Lady 'Cats Named to CoSIDA Academic All-District Team

BUCKHANNON – The West Virginia Wesleyan softball team placed three of its members on the CoSIDA Academic All District Team – Morgan Bruce, Rebekah Honce and Anna Eggleston.

The 2016 College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District™ Softball Team, selected by the SIDs at the Division II level in the district, recognizes the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.

Bruce is a 5-8 sophomore catcher from Lynchburg, Va.

She currently owns a .352 batting average with 13 home runs and 50 RBIs.

She has a 3.75 GPA in secondary education.

Honce is a 6-0 senior shortstop from Bridgeport, W. Va.

She is hitting .324 with five home runs and 43 RBIs.

She has a 3.98 GPA in biology.

Eggleston is a 5-6 senior outfielder/pitcher from Cincinnati, Ohio.

At the plate, she is hitting .358 with seven home runs and 51 RBIs.

In the circle, she is perfect 9-0 with an earned-run-average of 1.41.

The Academic All-District™ teams include the student-athletes listed on the link below and are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada.  This is the fifth year of the expanded Academic All-America® program as CoSIDA moved from recognizing a University Division (Division I) and a College Division (all non-Division I) and has doubled the number of scholar-athletes honored. The expanded teams include NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III participants, while the College Division Academic All-America® Team combines NAIA, Canadian and two-year schools.

The Division II and III Academic All-America® program is being financially supported by the NCAA Division II and III national governance structures, to assist CoSIDA with handling the awards fulfillment aspects for the 2015-16 DII and DIII Academic All-America® teams program.

First-team Academic All-District™  honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.
