The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced on Thursday (May 2) that Lewis University senior Matt Frahm (McLean, Ill./Olympia) has been selected to the 2013 Capital One Academic All-District 4 Baseball First Team.
Frahm, a public relations major, owns a 3.94 cumulative grade-point-average. The starting pitcher is now eligible for Academic All-America status.
“Matt has done it in the classroom every semester all four years,” Lewis head baseball coach Tim McDonough said. “He has had a variety of roles for us on the mound and has been successful at each one.
“He is deserving of any award he gets,” McDonough continued. “He is both great in the classroom and as a teammate.”
Frahm is the 2013 recipient of the Br. David Delahanty Male Senior Student-Athlete Award, as well as a four-time Delahanty Award honoree for academic excellence among Lewis student-athletes. He is a three-time Academic All-GLVC member.
