Lourdes University’s Bre Megyesi (Whitehouse, Ohio/Anthony Wayne H.S.) has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District I First Team softball team in the college division as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
A total of 12 student-athletes across the 22-state district were selected for the honor, and is the first Gray Wolf in program history to earn the honor in softball.
“This honor is a testament to Bre’s work ethic and determination both on the field and in the classroom,” head coach Jo Ann Gordon stated. “She had an outstanding season and we look for two more years of success from her.”
Megyesi, a sophomore shortstop, finished second on the team in batting with a .316 average. She led the team with 36 runs batted in and seven triples, a mark that ranks sixth nationally. In addition, Megyesi’s four home runs were tied for the team lead while she was second on the squad with 22 runs scored and third with nine stolen bases.
In the classroom Megyesi sports a 3.956 cumulative grade point average.
To be eligible for Academic All-District honors, student-athletes must hold at least sophomore status, own a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.30 and be either a starter or key reserve. The college division consists of all NAIA, Canadian, and two-year schools. District I consists of schools in Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Virginia, Vermont, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia. After student-athletes are nominated by their respective institutions, the teams are then voted upon by members of CoSIDA.
By being named to the Academic All-District First Team, she now advances to the Capital One Academic All-America Team ballot, where All-America honorees will be selected later in May.
