The postseason accolades continue to pour in for University of Scranton softball senior Shannon Stricker (Morrisville, Pa./Conwell Egan), as she was named to the 2017 College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District Team on Thursday.
This marks the second straight season that Stricker has been named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District Team, which honors student-athletes who must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) at his/her current institution.
Stricker earned a spot on the team in District 4, which is comprised of NCAA Division III schools throughout Pennsylvania.
Stricker, who boasts a 3.88 GPA as a Health Administration major at the University of Scranton, will end her career as one of the more decorated players in program history.
In 2017, Stricker led the Royals on the offensive end, batting a career-best .419 with 32 RBIs. A scorer of 24 runs for the year, Stricker recorded eight doubles, two triples and three home runs throughout the course of the season, as well.
