AUM player earns Capital One Academic All-District Third-Team Honors

Auburn University at Montgomery junior catcher Michael Dugan has been selected to the Capital One Academic All-District Baseball Team for his performance on the diamond and in the classroom.

Members of All-District teams were selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America. Requirements for nomination are a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.30 on a 4.0 scale in both undergraduate and graduate work, sophomore athletic and academic standing at your institution and participation in at least 50 percent of the team's games.

Dugan was voted to the District IV Third Team for his work in the classroom, where he sports a 3.53 cumulative grade point average while majoring in chemical engineering. Dugan was also named to the Southern States Athletic Conference's All-Academic team and was a NAIA Scholar-Athlete last season.

A native of Montgomery, Dugan posted a .296 batting average this season, with six doubles and 13 RBIs. He was equally valuable behind the plate, as he was a key component in helping the AUM pitching staff sport a team earned run average of 3.68 and committed just one error in 250 chances.

Three Academic All-District teams are chosen in each district, with those on the All-District first teams placed on the national ballot for Academic All-America consideration.

Nominations and voting for the All-America programs are conducted by members of the College Sports Information Directors of America. There is a University Division (Division I programs) and a College Division (DII, DIII, NAIA, Canadian and two-year schools).
