GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Coppin State baseball team was one of 51 NCAA Division I baseball programs to receive the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) Team Academic Excellence Award, it was announced by the organization over the weekend. The ABCA awards teams at all college levels with a cumulative team GPA of at least 3.0 during the 2018-19 academic year.
This is the second-straight season that the Eagles have received the honor from the ABCA and Coppin State is the only MEAC school to earn the award.
Not only have the Eagles performed well in the classroom the last two years, it also coincides with arguably the two best seasons in program-history on the field. This past year, Coppin won a school-record 24 games after winning the 2018 MEAC Northern Division Championship while matching what was then a school-record with 21 victories.
