THE FLATS – Recognized as part of the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performance on the field and in the classroom, Georgia Tech baseball featured five student-athletes on the 2023 Academic All-District Team, the College Sports Communicators (CSC) announced Tuesday.
The Yellow Jackets receiving recognitions are:
- Jake Deleo, Business Administration
- Angelo Dispigna, Business Administration
- John Giesler, Business Administration
- Ben King, Biology
- Jack Rubenstein, Real Estate Development (Master’s)
To be named academic all-district, a student-athlete must maintain a career GPA of 3.5 or higher, while holding on-field status as a starter or important reserve. The five Yellow Jackets selected mark the highest number ever selected to all-district, earning multiple selections for the fourth time since 2012 (2012, 2020, 2022) and the sixth time overall since 1979.
Academic all-district honorees advance to the academic all-American ballot. First-, second- and third-team (when selected) academic all-America selections will be announced in June.
