TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (seminoles.com) – Led by junior Amelia Williamson, the Florida State Women’s Golf Team has three golfers featured on the 2021 All-ACC Women’s Golf Academic Team. The ACC Office announced the team. Williamson was joined on the squad by freshmen teammates Alice Hodge and Taylor Roberts. It marked the first time each of the three Seminoles were honored on the All-ACC Academic Women’s Golf Team.

Each of the three golfers were members of the Seminoles’ starting lineup during their run to a school-record-best ninth place finish in the NCAA Championship Finals and their No. 1 national ranking during the 2021 spring season. Florida State won three titles this spring with wins at the Florida State Match Up, the Pinetree Collegiate and the NCAA Louisville Regional Championship. The Seminoles finished as the ACC runner-up for the fourth consecutive conference championship tournament.

As a junior, Williamson (3.568 GPA in Sport Management) played in all eight events for the Seminoles including her second career ACC Championship, her second career NCAA Regional Championship and her second career NCAA Championship Finals. She earned her career-best finish of tied for second at the Florida State Match Up and at the NCAA Louisville Regional Championship. Williamson’s individual finishes at the Florida State Match Up and the NCAA Louisville Regional Championship helped the Seminoles win the team titles at both events. Her career-best single round score (66) came in the first round of the Moon invitational.

In just her first season as a Seminole, Hodge (3.920 in Finance) played in all eight matches in the spring including the ACC Championship, the Louisville Regional Championship and the NCAA Championship Finals. She helped Florida State to the finals of the match play portion of the ACC Championship for the first time in school history where she earned a well-played 4&3 win over Wake Forest’s Mimi Rhodes in the Seminoles’ win over Wake Forest in the semifinals.

Another freshman, Roberts (4.00 in Sport Management) also played in each of Florida State’s eight events as a member of the Seminoles’ lineup. Her first career top-five finish came at the Florida State Match Up (tied for fourth) while her second career top-10 finish came at the Pinetree Collegiate (tied for eighth). Robert’s lowest career single round score of 69 came in the first round of the Valspar Augusta Invitational and the third round of the Pinetree Women’s Collegiate.

“Academics has been a big part of my life,” said Roberts. “Success in the classroom is something that both of my parents stressed the importance of. There was always an expectation to excel in the classroom, no matter if I was traveling the country for golf. Personally, I try to do my best in every part of my life. My success in the classroom reflects that attitude.”

To be eligible for consideration for the All-ACC Women’s Golf Academic team, a student-athlete, regardless of class, must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during her academic career.
