LONGVIEW – LeTourneau University juniors Nate Tomaszewski and Christin Mickelboro were named to the Division III Academic All-District second teams in their respective sports by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) this week.
Tomaszewski, an outfielder with the LeTourneau baseball team, was joined on the District 6 Second Team by seven other players from the American Southwest Conference.
Of the eight players named to the District 6 first and second softball teams, seven, including Mickelboro, are from the ASC.
Both Mickelboro and Tomaszewski are leaders on and off the field for their respective teams. Mickelboro led the YellowJackets softball team with a .445 batting average, while Tomaszewski was second on the baseball team with a .366 average.
