CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- Sophomore right-hander Benton Moss was named to the Capital One Academic All-District III Team on Thursday for his efforts in the classroom and on the diamond.
Moss is 7-1 on the year with a 3.34 ERA and leads the Tar Heels in strikeouts with 69 on the year. The Enfield, N.C., native was one of only two pitchers selected to the 11-man All-District team.
Moss owns a 3.93 GPA while majoring in economics and business at North Carolina. Moss is a member of the prestigious Morehead Cain Scholar Program at UNC.
First-team Academic All-District honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-America Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.
