Attaway Named Preseason All-America

Senior shortstop Aaron Attaway has been selected to the 14th-annual National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) preseason All-America team. Attaway was a third-team selection among the 57 baseball student-athletes recognized.

A product of Morganton, N.C., Attaway is coming off a season where he was named first team All-Southern Conference at shortstop while also earning second team All-State accolades from the North Carolina Collegiate Sports Information Association (NCCSIA).

He ranked tied for second on the team with a .363 batting average including a SoCon-leading 97 base hits - a mark that in addition to representing his career-best also ranked him tied for eighth in WCU's single-season record books, matching 2007 SoCon Player of the Year, Kenny Smith. Attaway also paced the SoCon with 68 runs scored, a mark that ranked him seventh in the final NCAA statistics.
