Rachel Mirsky Named to Capital One / CoSIDA Academic All-District Team

Yeshiva University softball player Rachel Mirsky has made team annals in 2015 by becoming the first softball player in the program’s young history to earn a spot on the Capital One / College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District team for district three. Mirsky earned a spot on this prestigious team for her excellence on the diamond as well as in the classroom.

The White Plains, New York native third baseman and pitcher was outstanding for the Maccabees in their first year as an NCAA Division III program. She batted a team-high .348, with team-highs of 23 hits (23-for-66), 22 runs, seven doubles, three homeruns and 39 total bases. She drove in 15 runs and had a .591 slugging percentage. As a pitcher, Mirsky tossed 67.0 innings, struck out 60 batters and earned three wins.

In the classroom, Mirsky has impressed with a cumulative 3.958 grade-point average. She is a biology major with aspirations to work in the medical field.

A 2015 Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (HVIAC) All-Conference team member, Mirsky’s name will now be placed on the national ballot for Academic All-America consideration. Should Mirsky land a spot on this elite team, she will become the fourth overall and the first to earn it for a sport other than basketball. Yeshiva has had three Academic All-Americans in the University’s history, including Eric Davis (men’s basketball, ‘90), Benjy Ritholtz (men’s basketball, ‘14 and ‘15) and Rebecca Yoshor (women’s basketball, ‘13 and ‘14).
