GREENSBORO – Clemson junior Yana Koroleva has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Tennis Scholar-Athlete of the Year and leads the sport’s 2013 All-ACC Academic Team, as announced Tuesday by Commissioner John Swofford.
Koroleva, a native of Moscow, Russia, finished her junior season ranked 13th nationally. The All-American and All-ACC selection earned a 28-8 overall singles mark, including a 10-1 record in ACC play, while helping the Tigers to an appearance in the Round of 16 of the NCAA Division I Women’s Tennis Championship. Eighteen of her singles wins came at the No. 1 position, and she teamed with Beatrice Gumulya at No. 1 doubles to record a 10-1 mark and finish the season ranked No. 34. Individually, Koroleva advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division I Women’s Tennis Singles Championship.
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 minimum 3.0 grade point average for their career as well as a 3.0 for each of the last two semesters.
The All-ACC Academic Team boasts 10 student-athletes that earned All-ACC recognition in 2013, while four of those student-athletes are repeat All-ACC Academic Team selections, including four-time honoree Zoe De Bruycker of North Carolina.
Ten ACC institutions are recognized led by Duke, Florida State, Georgia Tech and Miami which each landed three student-athletes on the team. Clemson, North Carolina and Virginia Tech followed with two apiece, while Boston College and Virginia each had one.
To be eligible for consideration for the All-ACC Academic Team, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.0 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.0 cumulative average during her academic career.
