Borthwick Named First Team All-ACC

Cary, N.C. – Senior Daneika Borthwick was named an All-ACC First Team honoree by the leagues coaches, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced Thursday. Borthwick becomes just the third Seminole in school history to earn All-ACC honors four times. This season, she led the Noles with a 22-11 singles mark and 25-12 doubles record.

Saving her best tennis for her senior season, Borthwick won 10 matches against ranked opponents, including a stretch of four wins against Top 50 opponents. She was 14-5 on Court 1 this spring and recorded a 9-4 ACC record.

Borthwick also set a career high with an eight-match win streak to close the regular season, while her No. 31 ITA ranking tied her career best from her freshman season.

“This is another much deserved accolade for DD to add to her list of accomplishments,” head coach Jennifer Hyde said. “She’s a four-time All-ACC recipient, which speaks volumes to the career she has had at Florida State. It also speaks to the respect that she has within the ACC. She has been a consistent force every year in her career. Nothing is holding her back, and she deserves every bit of this recognition. We are all so proud of her.”

Borthwick entered the school’s Top 10 lists in career singles and doubles victories this season, ending tied for eighth with 75 doubles wins. She is expected to be an at-large selection for next month’s NCAA Singles Championship and is looking to add to her 81 singles wins, ninth in school history.
