Wright Receives Academic All-District Recognition

Greenwood, Ind. - Lynn University softball player Leanne Wright was honored by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) as an Academic All-District 5 selection as announced on Thursday.  This is the second consecutive year Wright has been recognized and she is now eligible for Academic All-America honors.

A senior out of Orange Park, Fla., Wright is set to graduate this semester with 3.98 grade point average in biology.  The four-year letterwinner led the Fighting Knights to their best season in over a decade, helping the softball program to a 26-22 overall mark and 12-12 record in Sunshine State Conference play.  Both win totals are the most since 2004 and 2003, respectively.

Wright hit .286 with five home runs and 20 runs batted in, capping off a career which saw her hit the sixth-most home runs (18) and drive in the seventh-most runs (82) in program history.
