HENDERSON, Tenn.— The 2017 CoSIDA All-District Softball Teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), were released this past week and Freed-Hardeman right-handed pitcher Makenzie Prince was named First-Team Academic All-District for District Two. To view the entire CoSIDA Academic All-District teams, click here.

To be nominated, a student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) at their current institution. Nominated student-athletes must have participated in at least 50 percent of the teams' games at the position.
 
Prince, a junior from Smyrna, Tenn., had another outstanding year for the Lady Lions, as she earned All-AMC honors for a second straight season. During her debut with FHU in 2016 Prince was selected as the Newcomer of the Year for the American Midwest Conference. Her 2017 season was much of the same, as she compiled a 10-5 record in the circle and maintained an impressive 1.11 ERA.
 
In addition to her ability on the field, Prince excelled in the classroom again this season and maintained an impressive 4.0 GPA as a Kinesiology major at Freed-Hardeman.
 
Prince, along with the other first-team academic All-District honorees, will advance to the Capital One Academic All-America team ballot, where first, second and third-team All-America teams will be selected later this month.
