Haney Adds Two More Awards to Her Growing Collection
University of Colorado at Colorado Springs center fielder Stacy Haney added two more awards to her impressive collection Thursday when she was named first-team academic All-District VII (College Division) and first-team Louisville Slugger/NFCA All-South Central Region.
As a result of the awards, Haney will now be on the ballot for consideration for both All-American and academic All-American.
Haney led the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference in batting average (.519), was second in walks (34) and stolen bases (24) and third in doubles (17). She also hit 10 home runs and drove in 53.
In the classroom, she maintained a 3.84 GPA in Biology.
Haney had already been named first-team All-South Central Region by Daktronics, but the NFCA/Louisville Slugger Award, which is voted upon by coaches, is considered the more prestigious.
The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) selects Academic All-America teams in 12 programs, including softball. A first team, second team and third team are selected in both the University (Division I and I-AA) and College (Division II, III and NAIA) Divisions.
To be nominated, the student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) for his/her career. No athlete is eligible until he/she has reached sophomore athletic and academic standing at his/her current institution (thus, true freshmen, red-shirt freshmen and ineligible transfers are not eligible). In the cases of transfers, graduate students and junior college graduates, the athlete must have completed one full academic year at the nominating institution to be eligible.
