Notre Dame junior Emma Reaney has been named the 2013-2014 ACC Women’s Swimming & Diving Scholar-Athlete of the Year, the conference announced on Wednesday.
The award has been given out annually since 2007 to a junior or a senior with at least a 3.0 GPA (for both their careers and the last two semesters) who has also excelled athletically.
During the 2013-2014 season, her first in the ACC, Reaney broke the NCAA, U.S. Open, and American Records in the 200 breaststroke twice: once while winning the ACC title and then again while winning the NCAA title. She won three events in total at ACC’s and earned three All-American honors to boot.
Reaney is majoring in visual communications design.
She led Notre Dame to 6 total athletes on the All-ACC Academic Team for this season, which tied them with Florida State for the 2nd-most. The Virginia women, who were the conference champions as a team, led the way, though, with 12 on the team – almost 1/4 of the 49 swimmers in total included on the list.
There were three swimmers who will graduate having spent all four years of their college career on this list, meaning that they’ve always had above a 3.0 GPA in their college careers.
- Julia Henkel, Manangement, Florida State
- Katie Rechsteiner, Chemistry, North Carolina
- Emily Lloyd, Women Gender & Sexuality, Virginia
A special congratulations goes out to SwimSwam contributor Christine Wixted, who earned her 3rd trip to the All-ACC list this season.
