Softball's Falcon Secures Academic Honors
BATON ROUGE – LSU softball’s Allison Falcon picked up Capitol One Academic All-District VI First-Team honors Friday as voted upon by the College Sports Information Directors of America [CoSIDA].
It marks the third straight season that LSU has had a player receive academic accolades from CoSIDA. She is the sixth player and first since Dee Dee Henderson in 2007 to garner first-team status.
Falcon, a biology major who carries a 3.85 GPA, has turned in a .259 batting average on 28 hits. She has tallied two home runs to go along with 17 RBIs. Her 28 hits and 17 RBIs are third on the team.
Earlier this season, Falcon produced a career-long six-game hitting streak from March 28 to April 7. The Donaldsonville native ripped a RBI single in the third inning which proved to be the game-winner during LSU’s 3-2 triumph over No. 2 Alabama.
LSU wraps up the regular season with a three-game weekend series at Kentucky. Games times are slated for 5 p.m. CDT [Friday], 12 p.m. CDT [Saturday and Sunday].
All three games of the series will have live audio and live stats inside the Geaux Zone on www.LSUsports.net/live. The game also will be carried live on Country Legends 104.9 FM in the Baton Rouge area with Patrick Wright and Matt Dunaway set to call the action.
Fans can follow every pitch of LSU softball this season via live in-game updates on LSU softball’s social media outlets at www.Facebook.com/lsusoftball and @lsu_softball on Twitter.
