Greenwood, IN – The Austin Peay State University (APSU) softball program has one of its student-athletes named to the Google Cloud Academic All-District ® Team for the first time since 2003.
Senior pitcher Morgan Rackel was one of 11 student-athletes recognized in District 3, which includes Division I programs in the states of North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
Carrying a perfect 4.0 grade-point average, Rackel is a chemistry major and this past Tuesday was named to the All-Ohio Valley Conference First-Team for the second straight year. She was selected as the OVC’s Pitcher of the Year in 2018.
Rackel will now advance to the voting for the Google Cloud Academic All-America® Teams. First-, second- and third-team Academic All-America® honorees will be announced in June.
The last Governor to reach the national ballot was Jenny Kelley in 2003, while Andrea Miller (1995-96) and Tracey Drechsel (1998) earned Academic All-America honors as Third-Team selections.
