Pitt State has added to its long list of Academic All-Americans this spring with the addition of Taylor Sibala.

Sibala graduated summa cum laude with a perfect 4.00 grade-point-average as a mechanical engineering major. He was a third-team Academic All-America® pick as a junior in 2010.

An Overland Park, Kan., native, Sibala hit .328 with a team best five triples, 38 runs scored and 17 stolen bases, earning honorable mention All-MIAA recognition.

This marks the third occurrence of a Pitt State student-athlete on an Academic All-America® list since January 2010. Pitt State led each of the past two decades in Academic All-America honorees, placing 39 honorees during the 1990s and 47 during the 2000s.
