AUSTIN, Texas — The College Sports Information Directors Association (CoSIDA) announced its Academic All-America Teams for softball Wednesday, with Georgia College senior Amber Coy (Warner Robins) taking a spot on the third team.
“Amber is very deserving of this award and we are very proud of all of her accomplishments,” said GC Softball head coach Jamie Grodecki. “Her accolades speak directly to her work ethic and character on and off the field. I am so happy GC has such a well-rounded student-athlete representing us in DII.”
Coy owns a 3.91 GPA in nursing and takes a spot for infielder on the third team. Coy was one of two Peach Belt Conference (PBC) student-athletes on the list.
This marks the first Academic All-America trophy in Coy’s career, as she earned All-District status for the third time. She finished the virus-shortened 2020 season at .263 with six RBIs and eight runs scored in 20 games, including a walk-off RBI single in the final game of the season.
The infielder gives GC softball seven academic All-America trophies in school history, as Coy joins Hannah Coursey, Holland Coursey, Mandy Chandler and Marisa Boyette. Five of the seven honors have come during coach Grodecki's tenure.
