NEW YORK – Columbia seniors Dan Bracey and Alex Godshall were named to the Capital One Academic All-District Baseball Second Team, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America. 

Bracey is a two-time Academic All-District selection after a stellar four years on the hill for the Lions.  A three-year weekend starter for Columbia, Bracey lowered his earned run average in each season during his career.  He finished his career with 12 wins, six complete games and 128 strikeouts. 

A second-team All-Ivy Leaguer in 2010, Bracey won four games in 2011 for the second consecutive season and tossed three complete games.  He walked just 10 batters in 52 2/3 innings.  Bracey will graduate from Columbia College in two weeks with a degree in economics.

Godshall earned his first Academic All-District award after a strong senior season in which he batted .294, started 33 of 37 games at second base and stole eight bases in eight tries.  During his career at Columbia, Godshall never was caught stealing, going 10 for 10 in stolen base attempts.  Godshall will also graduate from Columbia College later this month with a degree in economics and philosophy.

The Academic All‐District® teams are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. The District I team is comprised of players from Division I schools in the states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont.
