Junior Michael Wielansky of The College of Wooster was voted first-team Google Cloud Academic All-District® for baseball by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), the organization announced on Thursday.
Wielansky, now a two-time Academic All-District® honoree, advances to the ballot for Academic All-America® consideration.
Wielansky, a business economics major with a 3.42 GPA, was one of four infielders voted to the all-district team. Entering the week, the junior ranked second in Div. III with 64 runs and 42nd with 63 hits. The Fighting Scots' shortstop also ranks in the top-20 nationally in walks (35, 14th), doubles (18, 14th), and total bases (109, 19th).
On the year, Wielansky sports a .396/.508/.686 slash line for the second-ranked Scots. The junior has 44 RBI, six homers, and five triples.
Within NCAA Div. III District 7 (Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio), just 11 student-athletes were honored by CoSIDA, and Wielansky was one of two honorees from North Coast Athletic Conference institutions.
