GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Duke senior Nick McCrory has been named the 2014 Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Swimming & Diving Scholar-Athlete of the Year and headlines the 2014 All-ACC Academic Men’s Swimming & Diving Team, as announced today by Commissioner John Swofford.

A religion major from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, McCrory won his fourth individual national championship in the platform dive discipline at the 2014 NCAA Championships, becoming the first to accomplish the feat in that event. In addition, McCrory earned All-America status on the one-meter board. McCrory completes his career as an 11-time All-American and a record 10 gold medals in ACC Championship competition.

Each of the ACC’s 11 schools that sponsor men’s swimming and diving are represented on the All-Academic Team, led by Virginia Tech with nine student-athletes. Virginia and Notre Dame have six apiece, while North Carolina has five, NC State has four and Georgia Tech has three. Duke and Florida State each had two, followed by Pitt, Miami and Boston College with one honoree.

Virginia Tech’s Ryan Hawkins and Nick Tremols, along with Florida State’s Tom Neubacher, NC State’s Jonathan Boffa and Virginia’s Taylor Grey, were named to the league’s academic team for the fourth time in their careers.

The ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year awards were established in September 2007 to be awarded annually to the top junior or senior student-athlete in their respective sports. Candidates for the awards must have maintained a 3.0 grade point average for their career as well as a 3.0 for each of the last two semesters.

To be eligible for consideration for the All-ACC Academic Team, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during her academic career.
