BABSON PARK, Mass.—Babson College junior Sean Harrington (Walpole, Mass.) was named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Google Cloud Academic All-District Team for the second consecutive season on Thursday afternoon. The only player in program history to earn all-district honors, Harrington is now eligible for the All-America team, which will be released later in May.
Harrington, who earned New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Academic All-Conference honors back in April, is batting .313 with a .470 on-base percentage and career highs of 42 hits and 34 RBI in 40 starts this spring. He also has doubled six times to go along with a pair of home runs, nine stolen bases and 29 walks for the Beavers.
Harrington has at least one hit in 33 of 40 contests, and has batted .377 (20-for-53) with six multi-hit games, four doubles, one homer and 10 RBI in 14 outings since April 16.
In addition to his success on the field, Harrington carries a 3.59 cumulative grade-point average, serves as a Babson Peer on Wellness (POW) and is a member of the Project TEAM Advisory Committee.
Since 1952, CoSIDA has honored more than 20,000 outstanding student-athletes across the NCAA. To be eligible, a student-athlete must be a starter or key reserve, maintain a GPA of 3.30 on a 4.0 scale, and be in their second year academically at their current institution.
No. 6/6 Babson (33-7), which is second in the most recent NCAA regional rankings, suffered an 8-2 loss to MIT in the NEWMAC Tournament final on Wednesday and are hoping to earn one of 16 at-large bids to the NCAA Championship when the selections are announced on Monday.
