GREENWOOD, Ind. – Harvard baseball continues to receive recognition for its work in the classroom, as four of its student-athletes were named to the 2020 CoSIDA Academic All-District team. Kieran Shaw, Jake Suddleson, Enzo Stefanoni and Matt Thomas were all selected to the 11-person roster in District 1, making the Crimson one of only two teams in the country to have four representatives honored (Duke, District 3).

The Crimson add these selections to an already impressive academic resume that includes 15 consecutive NCAA APR Awards and three consecutive ABCA Academic Excellence Awards. Suddleson and Shaw now represent the baseball team on both the Academic All-District team and the Spring Academic All-Ivy team.  

The 2020 Academic All-District® Baseball Team, selected by CoSIDA, recognizes the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom. Honorees selected first-team Academic All-District® will advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America® ballot. Academic AllAmerica® honorees will be announced on June 11.
