FSU Leads The Way Academically

June 30, 2010

Tallahassee, Fla. — The Florida State track & field program acheived a league-best 15 selections to the 2010 All-ACC Academic Men’s and Women’s Outdoor Track & Field Teams, conference commissioner John D. Swofford announced Wednesday.

On the women’s side, FSU led all school with nine selections and the Seminoles did the same on the men’s side with five picks.

“Our athletes have show their commitment to academic excellence as once again we lead the ACC in number of All-ACC Academin honorees,” FSU head coach Bob Braman said. “I could not be more proud of our student-athletes. This is also a tribute to the efforts of our academic support staff and our assistant coaches who motivate these young men and women to be the best they can be in the classroom.”

Included on this year’s women’s squad are nine Seminoles: Pasca Cheruiyot, Jennifer Dunn, Callie Giffin, Allyn Laughlin, Pilar McShine, Andrea Palen, Marecia Pemberton, Kim Wiliams and Amanda Winslow.

Williams is a three-time honoree while Laughlin and McShine are two-time picks.

On the men’s team, five ‘Noles are recognized: Michael Fout, Brian Chibudu, Bryan Howard, Andrew Howard, Andrew Jacobs, Pablo Navarrete and Aaron Steele. Out of that bunch, Fout is the only FSU student-athlete that is not a two-recipient of the honor as he just completed his freshman season.

To be eligible for the All-ACC Academic Team, student-athletes must have earned a 3 .00 GPA during the spring semester and own the same cumulative mark.
