Moore, Hayden, Zeringue & Stewart Named To CoSIDA Academic All-District Teams
Louisiana's Ragin' Cajun baseball and softball team were represented on the College Sports Information Directors Association (CoSIDA) Academic All-District Baseball and Softball teams today.
Both teams are represented by student athletes who excel on the diamond and in the classroom.
For a second straight year, Cajun relief pitcher Dylan Moore earns CoSIDA Academic All-District honors. The junior Political Science (pre-law) major sports a 4.0 GPA. He's been named to the President's List five times and to the Sun Belt Conference Commissioners List twice.
"It's always an honor and a privilege for your program and university to have someone on your team recognized for a national award," head coach baseball coach Tony Robichaux said in a University press release. "I think this is a great award because you're not just judged on your athletic ability. It emphasizes academics and shows that what you do in the classroom is also important. That's what it should always be about. We call them student-athletes for a reason. We always tell our guys not to let their athletic mission undermine their academic mission. I think it's a great honor for D-Mo to be named to the award for the second straight year, and he is being paid back for his hard work and effort."
For the third straight year, Ragin' Cajun softball senior 1B Haley Hayden earned CoSIDA Academic All-District honors, while senior 2B Kassidy Zeringue earned CoSIDA Academic All-District honors for the second consecutive season. Both are joined this year on the team by senior pitcher Alex Stewart.
"This honor reminds you of how committed these student-athletes have to be in order to pursue excellence both in softball and academics," Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns Softball head coach Mike Lotief said in a University press release. "All of our kids are committed to making sure that they acquire a quality education and do the very best they possibly can in that pursuit."
Hayden is a two-time member of the Sun Belt Conference Commissioner's List (3.5-4-0 GPA), while Zeringue has sported a GPA of 3.7 or higher in 10 of 11 semesters, and Stewart has 3.71 cumulative GPA majoring in mathematics with a minor in economics.
