GREENWOOD, Ind. – The 2020 CoSIDA Academic All-District Softball Teams were released Thursday and Gustavus senior Aly Freeman (Omaha, Neb.) was selected to the District 6 Team, which recognizes student-athletes from institutions in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.

Freeman, a biology major with a 4.00 GPA, earns recognition from CoSIDA for the second straight year after being selected Academic All-America Third Team last season. Freeman received MIAC All-Conference in 2019 after batting .349 and hitting a league-leading eight home runs. During that season, she boasted a .670 slugging percentage with 11 doubles and 30 RBI. She was All-Conference honorable mention in 2018.

The Omaha native was on track for 45+ career doubles, which would place her in the top-two in program history. She also owns a career .969 fielding percentage, which is in the top-10 in program history. Freeman started every game of her career (117) at either third base, pitcher, or first base, and was on track for 145+ consecutive starts. Freeman has a .299 career batting average (100-334) with 55 runs, 34 doubles, 11 home runs, 63 RBI. In the pitcher’s circle, Freeman has a 3.29 career ERA with 33 games started, 51 appearances, 12 complete games, and 133 strikeouts in 236.1 innings.

This year’s 12-member All-District 6 Team includes eight student-athletes from the MIAC. Freeman is one of five infielders selected to the All-District Team and is the only person in District 6 with a 4.00 GPA. Academic All-District honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America ballot, where first-, second-, and third-team All-America honorees will be selected next month.
