Cameron Crochet, Academic All-American
Cameron Crochet earns Academic All-American honors
Louisiana College softball continued their excellence in the classroom during the 2018-19 academic year with 20 players earning National Fastpitch Coaches Association Academic All-American honors. To be eligible for the award players must maintain at least a 3.5 grade point average during the entire academic year in which they compete.
“Of all the many accomplishments this team had this year, this is one that I am most proud of," Head Coach Barry Roberts said. "To have a few kids accomplish this is great, but to have 20 is amazing!
"They work really hard off the field and what you will typically see, is that will carry over to the field. We talk, as a team, often, about taking care of details. This is a result of taking care of details.”
Cameron Crochet, a former Iota Lady Bulldog standout, was among the players earning the distinguished honor for Louisiana College.
“Softball has always been important to me,” Crochet said, “but when it comes to my academics I definitely make it a priority.”
With 20 players earning Academic All-American, the Wildcats will be a strong contender for one of the 10 team awards given in Division III. The NFCA will announce those team winners in October of this year.
“Genuinely proud of the Wildcat softball team as they continue to represent the Mission and Vision of Louisiana College on the playing field, in the classroom, and throughout our community," President Dr. Rick Brewer said. "Their dedication to excellence on the field and in their school work epitomizes the student-first athlete we have here at Louisiana College."
