Two Elizabethtown College fall athletes were named to the Capital One Academic All-District Team by the College Sports Information Directors of America. Men’s soccer player, senior defender David Boretti, was named to the All-District Men’s Soccer Team for the second season in a row. Women’s volleyball player, senior middle hitter Kelci Scannapieco, became the first Etown women’s volleyball player to be voted to a Capital One Academic All-District Team since 2007.
Boretti is one of 13 players voted to the District Four Team. District Four is the Division III district that contains all of Pennsylvania. Boretti started all 15 games for the Blue Jays this season, recording his only goal of the year in a 3-0 victory. The defender helped anchor a defense that allowed 16 goals in 15 games. The Blue Jays finished with a 7-5-3 record on the season and a 3-3-2 record inside the Landmark Conference.
Boretti is an engineering and history double major and holds a 3.95 grade point average. He was recognized on the Middle Atlantic Conference Fall Academic Honor Roll each of the last two seasons and should be joining the Landmark Fall Academic Honor Roll later this year.
Scannapieco is one of seven players voted to the District Four Team for women’s volleyball. She helped Etown to a 13-19 record this season and 3-4 in the Landmark Conference. This fall, Scannapieco recorded 424 kills, the fourth highest total in a season in Etown history. Scannapieco finished her career with 974 kills, good for eighth on the all-time Etown list.
Scannapieco is a corporate communications major and holds a 3.85 grade point average. She is a two-time MAC Fall Academic Honor Roll student-athlete and should see her name on the Landmark Academic Honor Roll this year as well.
