Parker Named Capital One Academic All-District

RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Felician College sophomore Taylor Parker (Surrey, British Columbia/Semiahmoo Secondary) has been voted to the Capital One Academic All-District Softball First Team for District I in NCAA Division II, as coordinated and selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). It is Parker's second postseason award earned this week.

Parker, as a First Team selection, will move on to represent Felician on the Division II Capital One Academic All-America® ballot. She is the second Golden Falcon softball player to be named CoSIDA Academic All-District. Teammate Kelsi Ludwigsen was so honored in 2012.
