FSU Ties Georgia Tech for Most Student-Athletes on 2009 All-ACC Academic Softball Team

Aug. 6, 2009




TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Six Florida State student-athletes have been named to the 2009 All-ACC Academic Softball Team, tying Georgia Tech for the most players from one team in the entire conference.

The Seminoles that earned the recognition are Terese Gober, Sarah Hamilton, Kristie McConn, Kaleigh Rafter, Michelle Snyder and Carly Wynn. While McConn, Snyder, Hamilton and Rafter are first-time selections, both Wynn and Gober have received this type of honor before.

Wynn is a three-time All-ACC Academic Team member and 2009 marks Gober’s second selection.

Thursday’s announcement by the league office is another bit of good news for Rafter, who was just recently awarded an NCAA post-graduate scholarship for her hard work in the classroom.

Virginia has the second-most selections behind Florida State and Georgia Tech with five student-athletes represented on the team. North Carolina has four, Boston College has three and Maryland, NC State and Virginia Teach all have two student-athletes named.

To be considered for the All-ACC Academic team, a student-athlete must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 for the most recent semester and for their careers.
