TYSONS CORNER, Va. – Washington State senior outfielder Collin Slaybaugh has been named to the 2014 Capital One All-Academic District 8 Baseball Team presented by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Slaybaugh, who owns a 4.00 grade point average and is a kinesiology major, received the honor for the third-straight season. Last year, he was a CoSIDA Academic All-American as a catcher.
A native of Puyallup, Wash., Slaybaugh (2012-13) is a two-time Pac-10/12 All-Academic First Team selection. A student-athlete may not receive the award during his freshman campaign or a redshirt season.
Slaybaugh is batting .318, and is tied for the team lead with six stolen bases. First team Academic All-District honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-America Team ballot, where first, second and third team selections will be announced later this month.
