W. Golf: Williamson Named ACC Scholar Athlete Of The Year

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (seminoles.com) – Florida State University senior Amelia Williamson, who earned a 3.625 grade point average and a 72.76 stroke average during the spring 2022 semester, has been named as the ACC Women’s Golf Scholar-Athlete of the Year by the ACC. She’s the first Seminole to win the award since its inception in 2008.

In addition to earning her Bachelor’s Degree in Sport Management on April 30, 2002, Williamson was named to the All-ACC Academic Women’s Golf team, earned the Golden Nole for Women’s Golf (for her contributions on the course, in the classroom and in the community), earned All-ACC Honors for the first time in her career and earned All-American Second-Team honors from the WGCA.

“This is a tremendous honor, and one that I am incredibly humbled to receive,” said Williamson. “It’s an honor that should go to every member of our team because without my teammates there is no way possible I could ever be thought of to win an award this meaningful. My parents very much value academic success, and I am thankful they have always pushed me to do well in the classroom. I’d also like to thank Coach Bond and our entire coaching staff because the amazing culture of our program allows all Florida State golfers to win important awards such as this one.”

Williamson has a cumulative GPA of 3.515 and will return for her fifth season as a member of the women’s golf team in 2022-23. She will pursue a second bachelor’s degree in Economics when she returns to campus to begin fall classes and the Seminoles’ four-match fall season.

Under Bond, the Seminoles earned a cumulative GPA of 3.432 during their competitive spring season. The women’s golf team was one of six Seminoles teams that earned better than a 3.4 GPA during the spring semester, and one of six at Florida State with a Graduation Success Rate of 100 percent.

“I am so incredibly proud of Amelia for all the successes that she has worked so hard to achieve,” said Bond. “She has earned, through hard work and perseverance, everything that is coming her way. From participating in the Curtis Cup and the Arnold Palmer Cup, to becoming an All-American, I couldn’t be happier for any player I have ever coached. For Amelia to have her star shine as bright as it is, is very exciting.”

Florida State won three tournament championships, won the team title at the NCAA Tallahassee Regional Championship, and finished in a program-best tied for fifth in the NCAA Championship finals in 2022.
