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.
