Seward’s All Everything Mark Recognized for Academics

KSCB News - May 3, 2013 1:31 pm

In a career in which she continues to pile up different
awards and records on the softball diamond, Thursday Seward County’s
Stephanie Mark received recognition for her work on the field and in the
classroom as she was one of just three junior college student-athletes
out of the nearly 400 selected to be named Capital One Academic
All-District.

The 2013 Capital One Academic All-District Softball
Teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America,
have been released to recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for
their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. Capital
One has been the entitlement rights holder to CoSIDA’s Academic
All-America teams programs since 2011.

The Academic All-District teams include the
student-athletes listed on the following pages and are divided into
eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. This is
the second year of the expanded Academic All-America(r) program as
CoSIDA moved from recognizing a University Division (Division I) and a
College Division (all non-Division I) and has doubled the number of
scholar-athletes honored. The expanded teams include NCAA Division I,
NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III participants, while the College
Division team combines NAIA, Canadian and two-year schools.

Mark was named to the District 6 College Division
Academic All-District Team. The District 6 team is comprised of players
from non-NCAA schools throughout the states of Kansas, Montana,
Nebraska, and South Dakota. Mark, a sophomore from Ogden, Utah, is an
Engineering major and holds a 3.83 GPA. Along with her success off the
field, Mark has had another outstanding year with the bat and the glove
for the Lady Saints. Throughout the course of the 2013 season she has
broken the school’s all-time hits, doubles and RBI records and leads
Seward in five major offensive categories including batting average
(.438), hits (81), doubles (18), home runs (17), and RBI’s (68).

First-team Academic All-District honorees including
Mark now advance to the Capital One Academic All-America Team ballot,
where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be
selected later this month.
