CHAPEL HILL – UNC baseball sophomore Benton Moss was named to the Capital One Academic All-District III Team on Thursday.

Moss has a 3.93 grade point average while holding a 7-1 record from the mound. The right hander has a 3.34 earned run average and leads the team with 69 strikeouts this season.

First-team Academic All-District honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-America Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.

For the first time all season, Carolina fell from the top ranking in the latest National College Baseball Writers Association and Collegiate Baseball polls; UNC remains in the No. 1 spot in the Baseball American and USA Today polls.

The Tar Heels return to action after the exam break on Tuesday against James Madison at Boshamer Stadium.
