Rindge, N.H. – Senior third basemanDerek Ingui of the Franklin Pierce University baseball team has been named to the CoSIDA/ESPN: The Magazine Academic All-District I First Team, as announced Friday by CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America).
As a result of the selection, Ingui will advance to the Academic All-America ballot.
To be eligible for selection, each student-athlete must own a 3.30 cumulative grade-point average or higher, be at least a sophomore in academic standing and be a starter or significant contributor athletically. The Academic All-District and All-America teams are voted on by sports information directors in the district and nation, respectively.
It is the third time Ingui has been named to an Academic All-District Team, as he has been selected in each year he appeared on the ballot. He was named to the All-District First Team last year and landed on the Second Team as a sophomore in 2009.
Wrapping up his final semester as a Raven, Ingui sports a 3.81 grade-point average as a biology major and will graduate this coming Saturday.
On the field, through last Saturday's games, he leads the team and ranks in the top five in the Northeast-10 Conference in a multitude of offensive categories: batting average (.406), slugging percentage (.685), on-base percentage (.461), runs scored (47), home runs (10), runs batted in (42) and total bases (113). In addition, he has hit 10 doubles and three triples, drawn 19 walks and stolen a team-best 17 bases in 20 attempts.
Ingui's .406 batting average (67-for-165) leads the Northeast-10, and he is attempting to become the first Raven to hit .400 for a season since the Northeast-10 began playing with wood bats in 2003.
