Covenant baseball senior Josh Harvey was voted to the CoSIDA Academic All-District® team, announced the organization on Thursday.
Harvey becomes the second player in program history to earn CoSIDA Academic All-District®, joining his brother, Luke Harvey, who garnered honors in 2016. He is now eligible for CoSIDA Academic All-America® recognition.
The Academic All-District teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom.
In order to be nominated for this award, student-athletes must have a GPA of 3.3 or higher and be a significant contributor to their team. The ballot is then voted on by various Sports Information personnel within the district.
A senior from Apex, N.C., Harvey was named to the All-USA South West Division second team after leading the Scots with a .412 average on the year. Harvey hit two home runs with 34 RBIs, 36 runs scored, and a team-high 56 hits in 38 games. He had a .529 slugging percentage and led the team with a .503 on-base percentage.
Harvey also tied for the team lead with 17 multi-hit games, including two four-hit efforts, and tallied 10 multi-RBI games. He ended the year with a 25-game on-base streak, the second-longest streak on the team this season.
In the classroom, Harvey graduated this month with a degree in community development and a GPA of 3.84 at Covenant. Harvey is a three-time USA South All-Academic team selection, garnering the award with distinction this year.
