Five Seminoles Named To All-ACC Academic Team

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (seminoles.com) – All five members of the 2017 lineup for the nationally ranked Florida State women’s golf team – Matilda Castren, Amanda Doherty, Lydia Gumm, Kim Metraux and Morgane Metraux – have been named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic team as announced by the ACC.  Florida State was one of only two teams in the ACC to have each member of its lineup named to the academic team.

The selection of five Seminoles marks the second time in the last three years that each member of Florida State’s lineup and the 12th consecutive season at least three Seminoles have been named to the prestigious academic team.  It marks the third consecutive year that Castren, Gumm, Kim Metraux and Morgane Metraux have been named to the team and the first time Doherty has been named to the team.

Castren, Gumm and both Metraux sisters are just the sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth players in Florida State history to be named to the All-ACC Academic team at least three times.  Caroline Westrup (2006-09) and Macarena Silva (2008-11) are the only players in school history to be named to the ACC All-Academic Team four times.

“Our lineup had a combined Grade Point Average of 3.780 in the spring which is our main competitive season and that’s simply phenomenal,” said head coach Amy Bond.  “Included in that incredible GPA were three perfect 4.0 marks.  I am so proud of the commitment to academics that every member of our team displays.  Academic success is one of the cornerstones of our program.”

Castren (international affairs) and Gumm (sport management) continued the Seminoles’ incredible success in the classroom as they earned their degrees from Florida State in May.  With a perfect 1.000 Academic Progress Rate, every member of the Seminole women’s golf team has earned or is on track to earn their degree from Florida State under Bond.

11 of the 12 ACC schools that compete in the sport of women’s golf are represented on this year’s academic team. To be eligible for consideration for the All-ACC Academic team, a student-athlete, regardless of classification, must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during her academic career.

Florida State enjoyed a historical season on the course as it was ranked No 1 nationally for the first time in school history, won a school-record six tournament championships and finished a school-record tying second in the ACC Championship Tournament.  Four of the five Seminoles who were named to the All-ACC Academic team were also named to the All-ACC team for their extraordinary performances on the course during the season.

Florida State begins its 2017-18 season at the Cougar Fall Classic Sept. 4-5 in Hanahan, S.C.
