JEFFERSON CITY-  Two seniors on the Lincoln softball team, Clair Lorenz and Kristina Hein, have been to the CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-District first team. The honor, which is voted on by members of the College Sports Information Directors of America and released late on Thursday night, recognizes the nation's top student-athletes based on performance both on the field and in the classroom.

Lorenz, who was one of two pitchers recognized on the all-district team, and Hein, who was honored as a designated hitter, both carry perfect 4.0 cumulative grade point averages. Lorenz, a fifth-year senior from Pilot Grove, Mo. enrolled in graduate courses, majored in counseling while Hein, a senior out of Fulton, Mo., is majoring in education.

One of the top two-way players in the MIAA, Lorenz led Lincoln in the circle with nine wins and 137 strikeouts in 151.1 innings of work. Lorenz pitched 14 complete games this season and posted two shutouts. This is the second pitching honor of the season for Lorenz, who was named to the Southeastern Regional Invitational All-Tournament team after posting a 2-0 record during the season-opening tourney. Lorenz was also a force at the plate for the Blue Tigers, collecting 24 hits, including five homeruns and three doubles. She finished the 2013 campaign with a .424 slugging percentage, 15 RBI, 14 runs scored and five stolen bases.

Hein, who was also named an All-MIAA honorable mention on Thursday, split time as both a designated hitter and pitcher for the Blue Tigers, finishing with 22 hits and a .286 batting average. Hein batted in seven runs and scored six more, ending the season with three doubles and two homeruns. She batted in 35 games, making 31 starts, and had five games with at least two hits. Hein also made 13 appearances in the circle, pitching 22.0 innings and striking out eight.

Six MIAA athletes made the 11-player all-district team, with Lincoln being the only program with more than one honoree. Also recognized from the MIAA were pitcher Maddie Holub (Fort Hays State), outfielder Medora West (Central Missouri) and infielders Kacie Edwards (Central Oklahoma) and Taylor Zordel (Emporia State).

With their selections to the all-district team, Lorenz and Hein will now be placed on the ballot for the CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-American team, which will be voted upon next week.
