Duke’s Juliet Bottorff named ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year for 2014 season
GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Duke graduate student Juliet Bottorff has been named the 2014 Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Outdoor Track and Field Scholar-Athlete of the Year and heads up the sport’s All-ACC Academic Team, as announced today by Commissioner John Swofford.
Bottorff’s recognition caps a banner 2014 season in which she was also named the ACC Track Performer of the Year for both the indoor and outdoor season, as well as the ACC Indoor Track and Field Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Bottorff earned two All-America honors following a third-place finish in the women’s 10,000 meters and a fifth-place finish in the women’s 5,000 meters at last month’s NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Bottorff clocked a 5,000 time of 15:55.94, which ranks second on Duke’s all-time list.
Earlier in the season, Bottorff captured the first outdoor conference title of her career, running an ACC Championship meet record time of 32:35.72 for 10,000 meters. The Newark, Delaware, native followed the performance with a second-place finish in the 5,000m at the conference meet. In addition to strong performances at championship contests, Bottorff also performed well at the Payton Jordan Cardinal Invitational with an ACC-record 10,000m time of 32:25.69.
Bottorff, who earned a graduate degree in markets and management studies, also excelled in the classroom while at Duke, receiving postgraduate scholarships from both the ACC and the NCAA in 2014. The two 2014 ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year Awards give Bottorff three for her career, as she earned the same honor following the 2012 cross country season.
Two members of this year’s 2014 All-ACC Academic Women’s Outdoor Track and Field Team – Bottorff and Virginia Tech’s Frances Dowd – were named to the 2014 Capital One Academic All-America First Team. Florida State junior Colleen Quigley earned Second Team honors.
Joining Bottorff, Dowd and Quigley in earning 2014 Capital One Academic All-District honors were fellow All-ACC Academic selections Hannah Acton of Florida State, Becky Yep of Maryland, Sarah Howard of North Carolina and Barbara Strehler of Virginia.
Thirty-two members of the 2014 All-ACC Academic Team were participants in this year’s NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, which were held June 11-14 at Eugene, Oregon.
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 All-ACC Academic Team consideration, a student-athlete must have earned a minimum 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a minimum 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career.
