Lash makes third team ABCA All-American

Strongsville graduate Jason Lash capped off an outstanding four-year career at Heidelberg University, earning All-American third team honors from the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA).

Lash is picking up his second All-American honor of his career. Last year, he was named to the ABCA All-American Second Team. In his final season at shortstop Lash was named to the Mideast Region and the Ohio Athletic Conference First Teams. It was the fourth-straight year he was named to the OAC First Team and third time he landed on the Mideast Region First Team. His Golden Glove honor is the first of his career.

For his efforts in the classroom he was named to the Capital One Academic All-District IV First Team and the Academic All-OAC First Team. Lash was just the second player at to earn first team academic recognition from the conference and the first to earn academic all-district honors on three occasions.

At the plate, Lash was second on the team with a .369 batting average. He led the way with 20 doubles and was third with 66 hits and 46 runs scored. Defensively he boasted a .961 fielding percentage and helped to turn 34 double plays.
