LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Five players representing the University of Rio Grande were among the 69 student-athletes who were named to the 2013 Academic All-Mid-South Conference baseball team prior to the start of the league’s post-season tournament, which got underway last weekend in Kingsport, Tenn.

In order to be nominated by an institution, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.25 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved at least sophomore academic status.

Rio’s list of honorees includes sophomore Luke Taylor (Pedro, OH), who has a 3.64 GPA as an Allied Health major; junior Dylan Perego (Waterdown, Ontario, Canada), an AYA: Language Arts major with a 3.56 grade average; sophomore Nathanael Chilcote (Fredricktown, OH), who carries a 3.42 GPA as a Business Management major; senior Philippe Dumont (Columbus, OH), a Business Management major with a 3.30 GPA; and junior Tyler Godby (Proctorville, OH), who is also a Business Management major with a 3.30 grade average.

Rio Grande remains alive in the MSC tourney, which resumes tomorrow night at Lindsey Wilson College’s Egnew Park when the RedStorm face Campbellsville in an elimination game at 5 p.m. EDT. The winner advances to meet Lindsey Wilson in the title contest immediately afterward and must defeat the Blue Raiders twice to win the crown.

Cumberland University led all schools with 13 honorees, while Campbellsville University had 11.
