TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Seminoles.com) – Florida State’s Amanda Doherty, Kim Metraux, Morgane Metraux and Kathleen Sumner have been named to the All-ACC Academic Women’s Golf team, marking the fourth consecutive season at least four Seminoles have been named to the prestigious academic achievement team. The Seminoles led the ACC with four selections as Kim and Morgane Metraux became just the third and fourth players in school history to be named to the All-ACC Academic team in each of their four seasons at Florida State.
To be eligible for consideration for the All-ACC 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.
Florida State led the league with four honorees, while Clemson, Duke, Louisville, Miami, North Carolina, Notre Dame and Virginia each had three honorees. Virginia Tech and Wake Forest both had two selections and NC State had one.
“The great thing about the All-ACC Academic Team is that our girls set making this team as one of their top goals of the season,” said Head Coach Amy Bond. “It’s an award that is important to each one of our players; it’s very much a badge of honor. The only reason we didn’t have all five players from our lineup named to the team was because she had only one class to finish to earn her degree. I am proud to say that we had four members of our team graduate, had four players named to the All-ACC Academic team and we contributed as a team to the overall cumulative GPA of all of the student-athletes at Florida State being above 3.0 for the first time in school history.”
The Seminoles earned a team GPA of 3.625 for the spring semester and a 3.655 cumulative GPA for the 2017 and 2018 spring semesters.
Florida State has now had at least three players named to the All-ACC Academic Women’s Golf Team in each of the 13 years the team has been named. It marks the sixth time in those 13 years that at least four Seminoles have been named to the team. The Seminoles have had seven players make a total of 18 appearances on the team with its entire lineup named in two of the last four years.
Kim and Morgane Metraux joined Seminole greats Caroline Westrup and Macarena Silva as the only four players in Florida State history to be named to the All-ACC Academic Team four times.
Morgane Metraux (Lausanne Switzerland) was named to the All-ACC Academic Team for the fourth consecutive season. She also earned All-American Honorable Mention Honors from both the Women’s Golf Coaches Association and GolfWeek, earned All-NCAA Tallahassee Regional Honors and All-ACC honors for the second time in her career.
Doherty (Atlanta, Ga.) was named to the All-ACC Academic Team for the second consecutive season. She also earned All-American Honorable Mention honors from GolfWeek, was named to the All-NCAA Tallahassee Regional team and earned All-ACC honors for the first time in her career.
Duke senior Leona Maguire was named the ACC Women’s Golf Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
