Soccer Places A Program Record 10 on the All-ACC Academic Team

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State soccer team had 10 Noles named to the 2020 Women’s Soccer All-ACC Academic Team, as announced by the conference on Wednesday.

Malia Berkely, Jody Brown, Gabby Carle, Kristina Lynch, Emily Madril, Jenna Nighswonger, Kirsten Pavlisko, Heather Payne, Cristina Roque and Kaitlyn Zipay all were recognized for their success both on and off the field.

It is a program record with 10 student-athletes on the All-ACC Academic Team, beating the previous program record of nine set in 2015. It is the 11th time in the last 16 years that the Seminoles have had at least five student-athletes named to the All-ACC Academic Team.

Berkely, Carle and Lynch all received their third award, while it marks the second time that Payne and Nighswonger have been on the All-ACC Academic Team. Brown, Madril, Pavlisko, Roque and Zipay were all named to the team for the first time.

Minimum 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. Athletic achievements during the most recent season are also considered in selecting the All-ACC Academic Team.

The ACC Honor Roll, which recognizes all conference student-athletes with a grade point average of 3.0 for the current academic year, will be released in July.
