Paul Trenhaile of Truman State named to Capital One Academic All-District Baseball team

Junior Paul Trenhaile was selected to the Capital One Academic All-District Baseball team voted on by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

Trenhaile is among the national leaders in batting average this season as the Bulldogs end the regular season this weekend with a critical GLVC West Division series with William Jewell (Mo.).

Trenhaile's .390 batting average is second in the GLVC and the ninth highest by a Bulldog in a single-season.

He is three hits shy of tying the single-season hits record of 63 and is tied for sixth in single-season in RBIs with 37.

In 125 games played as a Bulldog at first base, Trenhaile has the third-best career batting average in school history at .353 and is already first on Truman's career chances (1128) and putouts (1048).

Trenhaile's name will now be placed on the national ballot for Academic All-America consideration.

To be nominated for the Academic All-District team, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.30 grade-point average, be a starter or key reserve and at least a sophomore in athletic eligibility.
