The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo baseball team’s starting shortstop Casey Yamauchi has been named to College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA)’s 2022 Academic All-District Baseball Team.
Yamauchi is one of 12 players named to the team from the NCAA Division II west region, which encompasses all teams from the Pacific West Conference, the Great Northwest Athletic Conference and the California Collegiate Athletic Association.
Yamuachi is now eligible for Academic All-American consideration later this month. UH Hilo has had two athletes receive CoSIDA All-America honors. One was former baseball player Phillip Steering, who received Third Team recognition and the other was women’s volleyball player Bria Beale who was UH Hilo’s first First Team selection.
Yamauchi has a 3.70 grade point average in his double major of kinesiology and communications. He currently leads the PacWest in batting average at .403 and ranks 13th in the country with 21 doubles.
