Greensboro, N.C. – Lynn University's baseball program received recognition for its success in the classroom from the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) on Wednesday, collecting a Team Academic Excellence Award for the 2019 season.
The Fighting Knights have earned this accolade, which was first presented following the 2016-17 season, in all three years of its existence. The Blue and White are one of just two Sunshine State Conference (SSC) programs to be tabbed with this honor, joined by Florida Tech, and one of just 37 Division II programs across the country.
In order to qualify for the award, each team must have a minimum 3.00 grade-point average for the 2018-19 academic year; this year 301 college and high school programs were honored with the award.
