For Second Straight Season, Program Record Five BC Baseball Student-Athletes Named Academic All-District


Five student-athletes from the Brevard College baseball team have been named 2023-24 Academic All-District performers, selected by College Sports Communicators (formerly CoSIDA).  Brevard College baseball student-athletes Logan Clark, Cameron Cook,  Lucas Granata, CP Pyle and Logan Sawyer were all named to the Academic All-District team for the 2024 season.  

The five CSC Academic All-District selections matched the BC baseball program record set last season.  Cook and Granata were also part of the 2022-23 CSC Academic All-District team.

The Academic All-District team is part of the Academic All-America program that has been honoring outstanding academic and athletic achievement by student-athletes throughout the landscape of college sports since 1952.  The CSC Academic All-America Baseball teams will be announced later in June.

Clark graduated last month from Brevard College with a degree in Business & Organizational Leadership.  The St. Petersburg, Florida native hit .343 with 97 RBIs, 26 doubles and an NCAA-era program record 14 triples over his four-year career.  Additionally, he recorded 183 hits, 132 runs scored and 65 stolen bases in his career.

A native of Mount Holly, Carolina, Cook is a graduating senior who majored in Physical Education and Recreation.  In addition to his excellence in the classroom, Cook was a valuable part of the Tornado pitching staff throughout his career making 42 appearances and 20 starts.

Granata, a junior outfielder from Wake Forest, North Carolina, is majoring in Business and Organizational Leadership.  In his three-year career, Granata has registered a .322 batting average and a .979 fielding percentage.  

Pyle is a junior outfielder from Salisbury, North Carolina who majors in Physical Education and Recreation.  Pyle, in his first season at Brevard College, led the Tornados with a .343 batting average. 

A sophomore infielder, Sawyer debuts on the Academic All-District team as a Biology major.   The native of Asheboro, North Carolina started 33 games in 2024 compiling a fielding percentage of .977.

The 2023-24 Academic All-District Baseball teams, selected by College Sports Communicators, recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom. The CSC Academic All-America program separately recognizes soccer honorees in four divisions — NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and NAIA.

The Division II and III CSC Academic All-America programs are partially financially supported by the NCAA Division II and III national governance structures to assist CSC with handling the awards fulfillment aspects for the 2023-24 Divisions II and III Academic All-America programs. The NAIA CSC Academic All-America program is partially financially supported through the NAIA national office.
