Indianapolis, Ind. -- Youngstown State sophomore third baseman Drew Dosch was named the Horizon League's men's Scholar-Athlete of the Month for May/June, the conference announced this week.
Dosch helped lead the Penguins to a third-place finish at the Horizon League Championships. He batted a .310 with 18 hits, 7 runs scroed, two home runs, 15 RBIs and six doubles during May (14 games). Dosch was a first-team All-Horizon League selection as a third baseman and finished third in batting average, third in home runs, third in total bases, fourth in slugging percentage and fifth in hits in the Horizon League in 2012.
An integrated social sciences education major, Dosch received a 4.00 GPA in each of his first four semesters at YSU. It is the second month in a row that Dosch has been named Scholar-Athlete of the Month by the Horizon League. In addition, he was named a Second-Team Capital One Academic All-American by CoSIDA in 2012 and is an active member of YSU's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
The Horizon League Scholar-Athlete of the Month recognizes outstanding academic and athletic achievements. To be eligible for the honor, the student-athlete must maintain a cumulative grade-point average of 3.20 or better (on a 4.00 scale), have completed at least one year at the member institution, passed 24 semester or 36 quarter hours and perform well during the month's competition. Winners are selected by the League's faculty athletics representatives, from nominations provided by sports information directors.
Wright State's Colleen Schneider (softball) was tabbed the female Scholar-Athlete of the Month.
