GREENWOOD, Ind.- Harvard softball senior Katie Duncan earned 2019 Google Cloud CoSIDA Academic All-District first team honors as announced by the organization on May 9.

To garner Academic All-District recognition, members of CoSIDA nominate and vote for the athletes who maintain a GPA of 3.30 or higher in combination with their athletic ability.  Serving a vital role for the Crimson in the circle, the lefty is among 11 players recognized in District 1, which is comprised of schools from Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont. Athletes who earn first team honors will automatically be entered into the Academic All-America ballot, which will be announced in June.

This marks Duncan's second consecutive year in which she has collected Ivy League Pitcher of the Year and CoSIDA Academic All-District honors. On the season, the psychology concentrator has registered a 17-5 record with 98 strikeouts and two shutouts with a 2.72 ERA in her 32 appearances.

The Crimson continues its postseason play as the team heads to Tucson, Ariz. for the opening round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday, May 17 at 11:30 p.m. EST against No. 6 Arizona at the Rita Hillenbrand Memorial Stadium. The broadcast will air on ESPN2 and on the ESPN app.
