Meredith DaunhauerOWENSBORO, Ky. (5/15/19) — For the second straight year, Meredith Daunhauer of the Kentucky Wesleyan College softball team has been selected to the Google Cloud Academic All-District Team, selected by CoSIDA. The program recognizes the nation's top student-athlete for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom, and is voted on by district Sports Information Directors.

Daunhauer, a First-Team selection, advances to the Google Cloud Academic All-America ballot where honorees will be announced in June.

The senior held a 3.88 grade point average, majoring in Elementary Education while capping off one of the top careers in Kentucky Wesleyan softball history. A native of Evansville, Ind., Daunhauer was named to the All-Great Midwest Athletic Conference team last week for the fourth time in her career, becoming the second Panther in program history to earn All-Conference honors all four years, and the first in the G-MAC era.

This season the GMAC's all-time leader in hits and stolen bases has collected 78 hits in 168 at bats. Her .464 batting average ranks second in the G-MAC and 14th nationally. Her hit total also ranks second in the conference standings while 78 hits sits 12th in the country.

In her career, Daunhauer recorded a G-MAC record 330 hits and 135 stolen bases. She currently sits second all-time in league history for highest career batting average.
