AUSTIN, Texas – Recognized for his success on and off the field, ORU senior Rolando Martinez has been named to the First Team Academic All-District 7 team announced CoSIDA Thursday.
Members of the all-district squad must be a starter or a reserve that has participated in at least 50 percent of the team's games with a 3.30 cumulative grade point average.
On the field this season, Martinez has been one of the most consistent hitters in The Summit League, collecting multiple hits in 12 games.
