For the third straight season, University of Scranton senior outfielder Megan Zinn (Bridgewater, N.J./Bridgewater-Raritan) has been named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District® First Team, earning the honor in Division III, District 4.
For Zinn, who boasts a 3.93 GPA as an Early Childhood & Primary Education major at the University, becomes the first softball student-athlete in program history to earn Academic All-District honors for the third time in a career. Zinn will now move onto the national ballot, as she looks to earn a spot on the Academic All-American team for the second straight season.
Zinn, who plans to return next season for the softball team, entered the 2020 season needing just 23 hits to break the program's all-time career hit mark before the Royals' season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A 2019 NFCA Third Team All-American selection, Zinn is a career .405 hitter with a .528 slugging percentage and a .441 on-base percentage. She ranks among Scranton's all-time leaders in runs scored (2nd), hits (3rd), doubles (3rd), batting average (4th), total bases (4th) at-bats (5th), on-base percentage (9th) and RBI (10th).
A leader on Scranton's 2019 Landmark Conference championship team, Zinn has been an All-Landmark Conference First Team selection twice (2017, 2019) and a Second Team pick once (2018). An NFCA All-Region selection last year, Zinn has also been named to the Landmark's Spring Academic Honor Roll three times throughout her career.
