USTFCCCA Names Seven Noles as All-Academic Athletes

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Seven Florida State cross country runners were named All-Academic athletes by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Thursday.

Amanda Beach, Rebecca Clark, Jen Lima, Lauren Ryan and Maudie Skyring were among the 114 women earned All-Academic distinction for their efforts during the 2021 season.

Adriaan Wildschutt and Ahmed Muhumed were two of 83 student-athletes recognized on the men’s list.

In order to qualify for All-Academic distinction, student-athletes must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.25 on a 4.0 scale and finish in the top-25 (or 10 percent) at the NCAA Regional Championships or as an All-American at the NCAA Championships.

“I’m so proud of both teams for their academic performance this Fall,” FSU head coach Bob Braman said. “We had one of our best performances in program history. Six of our top seven ladies made the ACC All-Academic team yesterday and five were also named to the coaches’ association all-academic team,

“It’s such a joy to see our program founded in learning,” Braman added. These athletes will do great things in their lives.”

Wildschutt was tabbed as the ACC Men’s XC Scholar-Athlete of the Year on Wednesday in addition to headlining the All-ACC Academic team alongside Muhumed and Silas Griffith.

Skyring, Lima, Ryan and Beach were all recognized on the women’s All-ACC Academic team in addition to Agnes McTighe and Erin Phelps.
