A biology major, Callow graduated from Hope College this month.

On the field, Callow batted .344 this season for the Flying Dutch, who finished with a 26-12 record and were runner-up in both the MIAA regular-season standings and the league tournament.

Hitting cleanup, Callow belted a career-high four home runs and recorded a .508 slugging percentage. Callow finished third on the team with 27 RBIs.

Defensively, Callow shined as well and did not commit an error in 256 total chances at first base.

The 2021-22 Academic All-District® Softball Team, selected by CoSIDA, recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom. The CoSIDA Academic All-America® program separately recognizes softball honorees in four divisions — NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and NAIA.  

The CoSIDA Academic All-District® teams include the student-athletes listed on the following pages and are divided into geographic districts across the United States and Canada. 

The Division II and III CoSIDA Academic All-America® programs are partially financially supported by the NCAA Division II and III national governance structures to assist CoSIDA with handling the awards fulfillment aspects for the 2021-22 Divisions II and III Academic All-America® programs.
