TACOMA, Washington – Jessica Gott became the second Puget Sound student-athlete in three years to earn an Academic All-American nod from the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). She was placed on the Academic All-American Second Team.
Gott graduated with a 3.99 GPA while majoring in psychology with a minor in business.
"Jessica's selection as a 2018 Academic All-American is the ultimate capstone to an outstanding career at Puget Sound," said Puget Sound softball head coach Kellyn Tate. "It's a testament to her relentless drive towards excellence and lasting legacy on the Logger softball program."
Gott was named a CoSIDA Academic All-District honoree following both the 2017 and 2018 seasons. She also earned All-Northwest honors in each of the past two seasons. Gott was an Honorable Mention in 2017, and rose to the Second Team in 2018.
She led the 2018 Loggers in hitting with a .330 batting average, and her .425 on-base percentage was also a team-high. In the circle, Gott led the Loggers with 112.1 innings pitched.
Former Logger quarterback Hans Fortune '17 was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-American Second Team following his record-setting junior season.
