TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Splitting the libero duties on the court this season for the Seminoles, senior Madison Sullivan and sophomore Taylor Roberts have been recognized as well for their work in the classroom as the pair of Florida State student-athletes have earned Academic All-District honors, as announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
It is the first time since 2009 that the Seminoles have had multiple players named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District Team, and Florida State has as many All-District honorees as the rest of the ACC combined, as North Carolina and Wake Forest each had one apiece.
Sullivan currently holds a 3.726 GPA as she pursues a degree in Exercise Physiology, and Roberts has a 3.985 GPA and is majoring in Psychology.
Honorees selected to the All-District first team advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America ballot. Academic All-America honorees will be announced in December. A combination of academic and athletic performance is evaluated in the selection process at the district and national levels.
To be eligible for consideration for CoSIDA Academic All-District and CoSIDA Academic All-America honors, a student-athlete must have reached at least a sophomore in athletic eligibility and completed one calendar year academically at their institution prior to nomination. Nominees must also be a starter or key reserve who has played in at least 50 percent of the team’s games at the position listed on the nomination form and hold a minimum cumulative GPA of a 3.3 on a 4.0 scale.
