MARSHALL, MINN. – Barton College's Andrew Webster collected his second all-american award of the postseason, earning a nod from the NCAA Division II Conference Commissioners Association, as announced on Friday morning.

The CCA All-America and All-Region baseball teams, which are selected by CoSIDA members from schools playing Division II baseball, were first established in 2007. This is the second year in which the program is solely sponsored by the Division II Conference Commissioners Association..

Webster, a senior from Pittsboro, N.C., was recognized as a the First Team catcher after leading the team in batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, total hits, home runs and total RBI. He was named to the All-Conference First Team, NCBWA all-region team and D2CCA all-region team as well. Webster was also honored as a NCBWA All-American earlier this week.

He turned in a .401 batting average during the season with 75 total hits, including 16 doubles and 21 home runs, to go along with a .511 on-base percentage and a .824 slugging percentage. He drove in a league-high 58 RBI and scored 58 runs of his own in 51 games, while drawing 39 walks.

The Division II Conference Commissioners Association encourages and promotes Division II athletics and high standards of sportsmanship as important elements of higher education. The CCA is a key communications link among the conferences as they discuss views, policies and regulations that impact Division II intercollegiate athletics and works closely with the NCAA as a communications channel to NCAA Division II member colleges and universities
