Gandy, Bayliss Added to Academic All-WAC List



June 25, 2012

RUSTON - Louisiana Tech baseball players Beau Bayliss and Stephen Gandy were both added to the Western Athletic Conference's All-Academic Freshmen and Transfer list following their successful seasons on the playing field and in the classroom.

Bayliss, a red-shirt freshman infielder from Marshall, Texas, and Gandy, a junior transfer from Farmerville, La., both met all of the on-the-field and off-the-field requirements for the prestigious honor but were inadvertently left off the initial release.

With the addition of the two Bulldogs, the total number of LA Tech student-athletes who earned an academic all-league honor came to 59, including 14 Bulldog baseball players. For the entire academic year, Louisiana Tech boasted 94 student-athletes who earned Academic All-WAC honors.
