Clarksville, Ark.-Robby Finnell has been named to the 2007 ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America All-District VI Baseball Team, announced by district coordinator Mark Bechenbach Wednesday.

Finnell, a junior designated hitter from Tulsa, Okla., earns the award for the second straight season. A second team selection last year, Finnell was named to the first team this season following another productive year at the plate. The 6-foot-1, 215-pound right-handed hitter finished fifth in the American Southwest Conference in home runs (10) and eighth in RBI (51). His 51 RBI is a new single-season school record. He ended the season with a .324 average and owned a .594 slugging percentage. At Ozarks, he is second all-time in career home runs (18) and career RBI (102). On the mound, he finished fourth in the ASC in ERA (2.67). He went 4-3 in 70.2 innings of work and struck out 37. A two-time ASC All-Academic and ASC East Division All-Conference selection, Finnell helped the Eagles to the championship round of the ASC tournament this season and was named to the All-Tournament team. He is a Political Science major and was recently named Ozarks’ 2006-2007 Male Athlete of the Year. ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District VI Baseball Team for the college division recognizes outstanding NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, and NAIA student-athletes from the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. To be eligible for Academic All-America honors, student-athletes must be a starter with legitimate athletic achievements and maintain at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) for his career. Finnell, along with the other All-District first team members from eight national districts, will have their nominations forwarded to the national ballot, from which student-athletes will be selected as Academic All-Americans.
