ATLANTA -- Georgia State infielder Kristin Hawkins was named to the Google Cloud Academic All-America® softball team, announced Thursday by the College Sports Information Directors of America.
Hawkins' selection to the third team gives the Georgia State softball program three Academic All-America® honorees in the last two seasons.
Hawkins holds a 4.06 GPA in her first year of Post-Baccalaureate education after earning a perfect 4.0 GPA during her undergraduate career. This is her second straight season being selected to the All-District 4 Team. After being named 2019 Preseason All-Sun Belt, Hawkins made highlight play after highlight play with her glove at third base for the Panthers this season.
Hawkins owned the team's second-best batting average and was tied for the home run lead. She homered in three straight games this season.
Her game-ending diving catch to lead GSU to a win at Kennesaw State was featured on SportsCenter's Top 10 plays as the No. 2 highlight.
Hawkins is one of Georgia State's 29 CoSIDA Academic All-Americans® in all sports, including 22 honorees since 2010. In 2018-19, volleyball standout Crystal Lee and baseball player Rhett Harper have also been selected.
