CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Virginia pitcher/first baseman Danny Hultzen (Jr., Bethesda, Md.) has earned Capital One First-Team Academic All-District honors for the second straight year, as announced today by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

He stands second in UVa history in career win percentage (.907) and ERA (2.14), fifth in games started (43) and eighth in innings pitched (277.1). This season he leads the ACC in strikeouts (112), which is second nationally, and also is tied for third in NCAA Division I with nine wins.

He also is batting .333 this year with a home run, seven doubles and 28 RBI.

Hultzen was named Baseball America's Midseason Player of the Year this year and also was tabbed a Collegiate Baseball and NCBWA Preseason First-Team All-American.
