TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Seminoles.com) – Florida State Women’s Basketball senior center Adut Bulgak has been named a Senior CLASS Award Second Team All-American, announced on Friday by the awards committee. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence: classroom, community, character and competition.
In just a two-year career at Florida State, Bulgak made a positive impact on the playing surface and in the community. In her senior season the resident of Edmonton, Canada, averaged 12.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, shot 48.1 percent (156-of-324) from the floor and drained 34.4 percent (54-of-157) of her shots from beyond the arc.
Bulgak more than doubled her assists total from her All-America junior season, registering 39 assists. Despite her short time span in Tallahassee after transferring from Trinity Valley Community College, Bulgak ranks in the program’s Top 20 in career scoring average (17th, 12.5), rebounds (18th, 591) and blocked shots (ninth, 88).
The senior’s latest award joins a long list of honors she has received since arriving on FSU’s campus in the summer 2014. In her senior year, Bulgak has been named a WBCA All-Region honoree, a watch list candidate for the Wade Trophy and the Naismith Trophy, a second-team selection to the All-ACC Team and the ACC Player of the Week on Nov. 23, 2015.
Florida State Women’s Basketball has now produced two Senior CLASS Award All-Americans in the last three years. Former player Natasha Howard was also a second-team honoree in 2014.
An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, the Senior CLASS Award honors the attributes of senior student-athletes in four areas: community, classroom, character and competition. The award program is designed exclusively for college seniors who are utilizing their complete athletic eligibility, remaining committed to their university and pursuing the many rewards a senior season can bring.
