Arens Named First Team Academic All-District

Arens Named First Team Academic All-District

AUSTIN, Texas - Junior Billy Arens has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District V first team in selections announced Thursday afternoon by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

Arens, the Hornets starting second baseman, is now a candidate for Academic All-America honors. He would be the 16th student-athlete, and fifth baseball player, to earn Academic All-America accolades should he be selected.

To be eligible for Academic All-District honors, student-athletes must have at least a 3.3 GPA on a 4.0 scale and be a starter or important reserve on their squads. Nominees are then voted on in one of eight districts across the country by CoSIDA members.

First team All-District honorees are forwarded onto the national ballot for Academic All-America consideration.

On the field, Arens is third on the team with a .344 batting average with his 52 hits in 151 at-bats second on the squad.

He was named first team All-ODAC this season for the second straight year and also grabbed a spot on the ODAC All-Tournament team after helping the 27-8-1 Hornets to their first-ever conference title.

In the classroom, Arens has a 3.81 GPA as a Criminal Justice major and is slated to graduate Saturday after just three years of undergraduate work at Shenandoah. He has earned Dean's List honors in each of the past five semesters and has been an Academic All-ODAC honoree in both 2013 and 2014.

His future plans include attending law school.

The Academic All-America team will be selected later this month.
