CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Three Cavaliers were named to the 2015 All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Field Hockey Team, as announced by Commissioner John Swofford.
Junior striker Caleigh Foust (Bryn Mawr, Pa.) earned her third-straight honor while sophomore defender Becca Zamojcin (Phoenixville, Pa.) was named to the team for the second time. Redshirt junior goalie Rebecca Holden (Fishing Creek, N.J.) earned her first All-ACC Academic accolade.
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.
The ACC Honor Roll, which recognizes all conference student-athletes with a grade point average of 3.0 for the current academic year, will be released in July.
The ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year, which was awarded to Duke senior goalkeeper Lauren Blazing, was established in September 2007 to be presented annually to the top junior or senior student-athlete in their respective sports. It was Blazing’s second-straight ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year honor.
