(UA) OKLAHOMA CITY—Alabama sophomore first baseman/pitcher Charlotte Morgan was named a third-team ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American on Wednesday.

Morgan, a native of Moreno Valley, Calif., boasts a 3.75 grade-point average in exercise sports science. She is the sixth Crimson Tide player to earn Academic All-America honors.

“We are really proud of Charlotte,” Alabama head coach Patrick Murphy. “She does such an amazing job of handling her business in the classroom while also being one of the most dangerous hitters in the country and serving as our No. 2 pitcher.”

Morgan is hitting .425 with 18 doubles, 18 home runs and a school-record 75 RBI. She is also 17-2 in the circle with a team-low 1.29 ERA in 97.1 innings.

Her 18 home runs and 18 doubles rank as the second most in a single season in school history while her 75 RBI are two shy of the SEC single-season record set in 2005 by Tennessee’s Kristi Durant.

The Crimson Tide opens play in the 2008 NCAA Women’s College World Series on Thursday, May 29, at 6 p.m. from ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Okla. The game will be televised nationally on ESPN HD
