CLINTON, S.C. – Presbyterian College junior first baseman AJ Priaulx was named to the College Sports Information Directors Association (CoSIDA) Academic All-District IV team, the organization announced on Monday afternoon. It is the first such honor for Priaulx.
The left-handing hitting Priaulx is batting .296 this season with a team-leading five home runs and 31 RBIs on the year. The native of Warner Robins, Ga. is also leading the way with 16 extra-base hits and a .472 slugging percentage on the year. Priaulx recorded a 10-game hitting streak earlier this season, the longest by a PC player this season at the time.
Priaulx earned a spot on the Big South All-Academic team last season as a sophomore. The biology major has one of the highest grade point averages on the team, while proving to be one of the team's best hitters in the last two seasons.

It is the second straight season that PC placed a player on the CoSIDA Academic All-District squad. Weston Jackson was voted to the team a year ago.
