Southwest Minnesota State University senior baseball student-athlete Isaac Nett was named to the College Sports Communicators Division II Academic All-America® second team as selected by the College Sports Communicators (CSC).
The Division II Academic All-America® program is being financially supported by the NCAA Division II national governance structure to assist the College Sports Communicators with handling the awards fulfillment aspects for the 2023-24 Division II Academic All-America® program.
Today's announcement is the 29th time in school history and the eighth time a Mustang baseball student-athlete has earned CSC Academic All-American accolades. Since 2009, a total of 22 SMSU student-athletes have recorded CSC Academic All-America® honors.
Nett, a native of Albany, Minn., joins Brendan Rokke (2003, second team & 2004, first team) as the only two SMSU baseball student-athletes in program history to earn CSC Academic All-America® accolades twice in career. Nett, who was a CSC Academic All-America® first team honoree in 2023, graduated in May with a degree in ag business and finance. He closed his academic career with a cumulative GPA of 3.96.
Nett, a three-time Academic All-NSIC and two-time All-NSIC first team honoree, was a three-year member of the Mustang program. He finished the 2024 season batting .342 in 51 games, leading the team in both home runs (12) and stolen bases (12), while ranking second in RBIs (46). Named All-NSIC first team this spring, Nett collected 19 multi-hit games and 12 multi-RBI games. He racked up 115 total bases ranking tied for ninth in team single-season history, while the 12 home runs is tied for 10th in the program single-season record book.

A 2022 All-NSIC first-team honoree, Nett finished his career batting .350 in 133 games with 25 doubles and 112 RBIs, while ranking tied for sixth in team history with 26 home runs.
