MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The Georgia College Softball team (34-18) recently wrapped up its 2019 season, but the honors keep coming in, as junior shortstop Amber Coy (Warner Robins) was selected for the Google Cloud/College Sports Information Directors (CoSIDA) Academic All-District Team, the organization announced recently.

Coy makes her second career appearance on the District 3 team, which includes student-athletes from the Peach Belt Conference (PBC), South Atlantic Conference (SAC) and Conference Carolinas (CC). She boasts a 4.00 GPA in Nursing.

Coy will advance to the Academic All-America ballot, with an announcement due Wednesday, June 5.

All-time, 16 Georgia College players have taken Academic All-District nods, the most recent being Hannah Coursey, Holland Coursey and Coy in 2018.
