Castor Honored as CoSIDA First-Team Academic All-American

 AUSTIN, Texas – Sophomore Hannah Castor of the Taylor University softball team was named CoSIDA First-Team Academic All-American in the College Division, as voted on and announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

Castor owns a 3.65 grade-point average in biology at Taylor and was the only sophomore to earn Academic All-American honors in the College Division. The North Vernon, Indiana native started in 53 of TU’s 57 games this season, splitting time between designated player and right field for the Trojans and led Taylor’s offense with 52 RBI.
