For the second consecutive year, Guilford native Ryder Miconi was named the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Baseball Scholar-Athlete of the Year for his performance as a senior with the baseball team at William & Mary in Virginia.

Miconi also garnered All-Conference honors for the second time in his career by landing a spot on the All-CAA Third Team. During the regular season, he was picked as the CAA Player of the Week for the week of April 24.

Miconi finished the year batting .318 (61-for-192) with 14 doubles and team-highs in both nine home runs and 45 RBI. He also owned a team-best .531 slugging percentage and was tied for first with a .433 on-base percentage as a designated hitter for William & Mary. Some of Miconi’s season highlights included driving in a career-best six runs against Virginia Tech, delivering a walk-off RBI single against James Madison, and recording his first two-homer game at Towson.

As a finance major, Miconi is a four-time recipient of William & Mary’s Provost Award and the CAA Commissioner’s Academic Award. He is also a two-time CAA All-Academic selection and has made the Dean’s List every semester of his collegiate career. Miconi is the third repeat Scholar-Athlete winner in CAA baseball history, joining Jeff Palumbo of George Mason (2003-2004) and Jean-Michel Rochon-Salvas of Georgia State (2007-2008).

With four winners in the spring season, William & Mary now has 74 total winners of the CAA Scholar-Athlete Award--32 more than any other school in conference history and nearly as many as the next two schools combined. The Tribe led the CAA for the sixth year in a row and the 11th time in the 15-year history of the Scholar-Athlete program. Nominees for the award must be a starter or important reserve on their team and must have a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.25. The winners were selected by a vote of the media relations directors at each CAA institution. Each of the 21 winners advanced to the ballot for the overall CAA male and female Scholar-Athletes of the Year.
