Baylor Softball’s Hays and Stearns Named CoSIDA Academic All-District

WACO, Texas – Baylor softball’s Linsey Hays and Heather Stearns were named to the 2016 College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District Softball Team for District 7, announced by the organization on Thursday afternoon.

Recognizing the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom, the All-District selections make it three-straight years for the Lady Bears with at least one selection.

Players are selected by CoSIDA members, and to be considered, players must accumulate a GPA between 3.30-4.00 with at least a sophomore athletic standing, while being a starter or key reserve for their respective team.

The selections are the 27th and 28th time a Lady Bear has earned a CoSIDA All-District nod, becoming the 16th and 17th different players to do so.

Hays, a senior graduate student in Sport Management, carries a 3.62 GPA, complementing a stellar performance in the field with career-highs in almost every offensive category.

Stearns, a senior marketing major, has maintained a 3.44 GPA, dominating opponents in the circle all season and on pace to leading the Big 12 in strikeouts for the second-straight season.

The pair made Baylor the only Big 12 school with multiple selections, joined in District 7 by Paige Parker (Oklahoma) and Vanessa Shippy (Oklahoma State).

The Academic All-District teams are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. District 7 covers Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Wyoming, and Texas.

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.
