TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – A total of 16 student-athletes representing the Florida State cross country teams captured All-ACC Academic Team honors on Thursday.
The Seminoles had nine women recognized, which tied for the league lead along with NC State and Virginia, while the men had the second-highest total at seven along with Duke, Pitt, and Georgia Tech.
“This is just fantastic!” FSU head coach Bob Braman said. “Our women led the ACC in All-Academic honors and the men had the second most. I’m really proud that our student-athletes make academics a priority.”
Agnes McTighe, Emmy Van den Berg, and Alyson Churchill add All-ACC Academic Team honors after being named All-Academic by the USTFCCCA last week. Rebecca Pottorff, Marit Griep, Caitlin Wilkey, Riley Bahr, Dani Thompson, and Yasmine Abbes were also recognized by the ACC.
The women, who finished the 2022 NCAA Cross Country Championships in 18th place, also earned USTFCCCA All-Academic honors as a team.
Cooper Schroeder, Zach Cloud, Matthew Newland, Anderson Ball, Gabe Curtis, Jacob Holmes, and Sam Field were named to the All-ACC Men’s Academic Team. Schroeder was also recognized by the USTFCCCA last week on the All-Academic team.
Academic requirements for selection to the All-ACC Academic Team are a 3.0-grade point average for the previous semester and a 3.0 cumulative average during one’s academic career. In addition, student-athletes must compete in either the ACC Championship or NCAA Championship in the sport of cross country.
