Gentile, Karl Named to ESPN The Magazines Academic All-District Teams
Two Great Northeast Athletic Conference baseball
student-athletes earned recognition for their performance in the
classroom as well as the athletic field this spring. Suffolk junior
outfielder Rory Gentile (Gloucester, MA) and Emerson junior
outfielder Peter Karl (Wallingford, CT) were both named to ESPN the
Magazine’s Academic All-District teams by the College Sports
Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Gentile was a first-team selection for District 1. Gentile currently maintains a 3.75 cumulative grade point average as a Business Management major in Suffolk's Sawyer School of Management. This season Gentile has been a catalyst for the Rams offense. The centerfielder was named as a first team All-Conference selection by the Great Northeast Athletic Conference as well as being named to the GNAC All-Tournament team for his strong play in helping Suffolk claim the 2009 conference championship.
Karl was a second-team selection for District 1. He currently maintains a 3.56 cumulative grade point average as a Broadcast Journalism major. Earlier this spring Karl was named as a first team All-Conference selection by the Great Northeast Athletic Conference.
