Gillette Named Academic All-District

Complete Academic All-District Team 

LANCASTER, Pa. - Aaron Gillette has been named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District 4 Baseball First Team. To be nominated for the CoSIDA Academic All-America program, a student-athlete must be at least a sophomore with a 3.3 or higher cumulative grade point average and be a starter or significant reserve.

As a first team selection, Gillette now advances to the Capital One Academic All‐America® Team ballot, where first‐, second‐ and third‐team All‐America honorees will be selected later this month.

Gillette (Owings Mills, Md. / Beth Tfiloh) has excelled both on the field and in the classroom throughout his four years at F&M. A Business, Organizations, and Society major with a minor in Mathematics, Gillette is a two-time member of the Centennial Conference (CC) Academic Honor Roll and has twice helped the Diplomats to the CC postseason, including an 11-7 CC mark this spring that put them in this weekend's double-elimination tournament. 

Gillette leads F&M in batting average (.385), stolen bases (29, tied for single-season record), runs scored (45), and walks (31), and ranks second in hits (52) and on-base pct. (.503). In conference play, Gilette's numbers crack the top-10 in multiple categories, including league-highs of 21 runs scored and 10 steals while also ranking fifth in on-base percentage (.489), sixth in hits (29) and ninth in batting average (.397).

Gillette and the Diplomats open up play at the Centennial Conference (CC) Tournament this afternoon at Johns Hopkins. First pitch is set for 3:30 p.m. in Baltimore.
