GREENWOOD, Ind. – Senior Kyle Goodwin of the No. 10 Salisbury University baseball team was named to his first College Sports Information Directors of America Academic All-District Team, the organization announced.
Goodwin was honored for his excellence on the field and in the classroom, earning an outfield spot on the Academic All-District baseball team for District 2. He is an Exercise Science major and carries a 3.80 grade-point average, while also being one of the Sea Gulls' leaders at the top of the lineup.
Goodwin has been the Gulls' table setter all season in the lead-off spot. He leads the team with a .503 on-base percentage and ranks fourth with a .392 batting average. While collecting 56 hits on the year, Goodwin has also reached base on 18 walks and 16 hits by pitch, which is good for fifth in the country. He also ranks fifth in the nation with 53 runs scored, which leads the team.
