The Wilmington College baseball team had four individuals earn Academic All-District honors from the College Sports Communicators.
Owen Baumann, Tyler Shaneyfelt, Aaron Boster and Luke Chappie garnered Academic All-District honors and will be on the ballot for a chance at becoming an Academic All-American. In order to qualify for nomination for Academic All-District, student-athletes must meet the following qualifications:
• Sophomore athletically or higher

Chappie, a junior sport management major from Clinton-Massie High School, earned Academic All-OAC honors and pitched 25.1 innings for the Quakers in 2023. He had three of the team’s eight saves on the season.
Baumann, a senior sport management major from Eaton, hit .290 with 17 RBIs and six doubles. Also an Academic All-Ohio Athletic Conference selection, he scored 15 runs and played primarily outfield on defense.
Shaneyfelt, a junior sport management major from Dayton, led the conference in both stolen bases (37) and runs scored (53). He set program records in both categories for a single season as well as career, and carried a .310 batting average to go along with 33 walks. Shaneyfelt also appeared on the Academic All-OAC list.
Boster, a junior sport management major from Mason, led the conference in strikeouts (94). That mark is a single season program record. In addition to leading the Quaker pitching staff in innings (73.2), he tallied a 19-strikeout game on Senior Day, marking the most in a single game in program history. Boster also earned Academic All-OAC honors.
