ACC Announces 2015-16 All-Academic Women’s Swimming & Diving Team

The ACC has announced its All-Academic Women’s Swimming & Diving Team for the 2015-16 season.

From the ACC website: “Minimum academic requirements for selection to the All-ACC Academic Team are a 3.0 grade point average for the previous semester and a 3.0 cumulative average during one’s academic career for undergraduate students. Athletic achievements during the most recent season are also considered in selecting the All-ACC Academic Team.”

Louisville’s Kelsi Worrell won the ACC Women’s Scholar-Athlete of the Year after her twin NCAA titles in the 100 and 200 fly, among many other athletic accomplishments this season.
