First baseman David Towarnicky of the Appalachian State University baseball team has been named a first-team All-Academic All-America by the College Sports Information Directors of America/ESPN The Magazine.
Towarnicky, who is double-majoring in banking and financing with a 4.0 grade-point-average, is only the fourth student-athlete in ASU history to earn this honor. And Towarnicky is also the first athlete to earn this award in 18 years. Football player D.J. Campbell was the last to do it in 1992.
Playing-wise, Towarnicky, a four-year starter at first base, has played in 52 games, he has a .302 batting average, with eight home runs, 43 runs-batted-in, 11 doubles, a 408 onbase percentage, and a 484 slugging percentage. Career-wise, Towarnicky is hitting .303 with 39 doubles, 21 home runs and 147 RBI. (which ranks him fifth in ASU history).
Towarnicky is also one of ten finalists for the Lowes Senior CLASS Award, and he’s also a member of the Chancellor’s List, the Dean’s List, and a member of the Walker College of Business Honors Program and the Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society. Towarnicky was also a recipient of the Southern Conference Camp Champs graduate scholarship earlier this spring.
