BUIES CREEK, N.C. – Campbell senior Drew Butler has been named to the 2017 College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District 3 Baseball Team.

At least one Campbell student-athlete has achieved academic all-district status in each of the last 23 years. A Camel has been selected to the CoSIDA Academic All-District 3 Baseball Team eight straight years, and 18 times total since 1994.

Butler, a senior from Rockingham, N.C., owns a .294 average on the season with 43 runs scored and 19 RBI for the Camels. He leads NCAA Division I in stolen bases with 33 while maintaining a 3.71 GPA in economics.

Butler was also a semifinalist for the Senior CLASS Award in 2017.
