Zinn becomes just the 37th student-athlete in any sport at Scranton and the fifth softball player to earn CoSIDA All-American honors.  The 20th Royal to claim First Team Academic All-American laurels, she is also the first Scranton softball player to capture First Team honors.

Zinn joins softball players Kelly Guiton (1987, Second Team); Cheryl Zekas (1990, Third Team); Kelly Zaccheo (2012, Third Team); and Shannon Stricker (2017, Third Team) as CoSIDA Academic All-American honorees.

Tuesday's Academic All-American award caps off a record-breaking for Zinn, who led Scranton to its first-ever Landmark Conference championship this past season and the program's first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1983.

Zinn's latest honor comes on the heels of the junior being named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) All-America Third Team after being named to the NFCA All-Atlantic Region First Team.  Zinn was named First Team All-Landmark Conference this spring for the second year in a row and was a CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team honoree. 

Zinn's accolades were the result of a sensational season in which she started all 47 games on the season and batted .459 with 72 hits including 21 doubles, one triple, and one home run.  She established new Landmark Conference and Scranton records for hits in a season and also broke the Royals' program record for doubles in a season.

Zinn, who finished the spring ranked fourth in all of NCAA Division III for hits and doubles, also posted a.485 on-base percentage and a .624 slugging percentage.  She contributed 51 runs scored, 43 RBI, 11 walks, and 10 stolen bases.

Defensively, Zinn boasted a perfect 1.000 fielding percentage as she did not commit an error in 69 chances, recording 68 putouts and one outfield assist.    

Zinn and the Royals went 32-15 this past spring, earning the fourth seed in the Landmark Conference playoffs with a 7-5 mark in conference play.  In the conference tournament, the Royals defeated No. 10 Moravian twice and won three straight games on championship Saturday to take the crown.

The Royals headed to No. 1 Virginia Wesleyan for the NCAA Tournament where they were defeated by the top-ranked Marlins 7-2 before seeing their season end with an 8-5 setback to Manhattanville the following day.
