Silk Named to CoSIDA Academic All-District Softball Team

ALBANY - Sophomore Alexa Silk (Freehold, NY/Greenville) was named to the 2016 College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District Softball Team for her combined efforts on the field and in the classroom.

To be eligible for the Academic All-District team, athletes have to be at least a sophomore with a 3.3 minimum GPA at their respected institution. Nominees must have participated in at least 50 percent of the team's games.

Silk is a nursing major at Sage with a 3.86 GPA. The second baseman was recently named to her second-straight Skyline First-Team. As a freshman, Silk was also a NFCA All-Northeast Region Second-Team. The sophomore has been on both the Sage Dean's List as well as the Sage Scholar-Athlete Team.

The Academic All-District™ teams include the student-athletes listed on the following pages 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 thirdteam All-America honorees will be selected later this month.

Silk helped to lead the Gators to a 27-14 record and an appearance in the upcoming Skyline Conference Championship on May 7 at Mount Saint Mary College (Newburgh, NY).
