Grant Earns 2019 Google Cloud Academic All-District

Anderson, S.C. – Anderson University softball senior Kasey Grant has been named to the Google Cloud Academic All-District Team for District III, announced on Thursday.

Grant has started all 52 games at second base for the Trojans. The native of Comer, Ala. has hit 10 doubles, two triples and three homeruns on the season. Grant's solid play at second base earned her All-SAC honorable mention, while also helping the team advance to the NCAA tournament for the first time in five years.

In the classroom, Grant carries a 4.0 GPA while majoring in Biochemistry with a minor in Business, as she has been named to the Anderson University Dean's List following every semester of her collegiate career. The senior is also a member of Alpha Chi Honor Society and a member of Gamma Beta Phi, a service-based honor society.

The 2019 Google Cloud Academic All-District® Softball Team, selected by CoSIDA, recognizes the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom. The Google Cloud Academic All-America® program separately recognizes softball honorees in four divisions — NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and NAIA.

First-team Academic All-District® honorees advance to the Google Cloud Academic All-America® ballot. First-, second- and third-team (when selected) Academic All-America® honorees will be announced in June.

The Google Cloud Academic All-District® teams are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada.

The Division II and III Google Cloud Academic All-America® programs are partially financially supported by the NCAA Division II and III national governance structures to assist CoSIDA with handling the awards fulfillment aspects for the 2018-19 Divisions II and III Academic All-America® programs.
