Youngstown -- Youngstown State University student-athletes Drew Dosch (baseball) and Vicky Rumph (softball) have earned Capital One First-Team Academic All-District accolades, the College Sports Information Directors of America announced on Thursday.
Both Dosch and Rumph will advance to the Capital One Academic All-America Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month. The Academic All-America program is designed to recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.
