Clemson’s Yana Koroleva Named Scholar-Athlete of the Year
GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Clemson senior Yana Koroleva has been named the 2014 Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Tennis Scholar Athlete of the Year and headlines the 2014 All-ACC Academic Women’s Tennis Team, as announced today by Commissioner John Swofford.
A communication studies major from Moscow, Russia, Koroleva earned ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year honors for the second consecutive season. Koroleva completed the season ranked No. 34 in singles and No. 15 in doubles in the ITA rankings and earned All-ACC Second Team accolades. In the classroom, Koroleva graduated in just three years with honors and received the Athletic Director’s Award for seven consecutive semesters on the honor roll.
Fourteen ACC schools are represented on this year’s All-ACC Academic Team, led by Clemson and Miami with three honorees apiece. Seven institutions (Florida State, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Notre Dame, Syracuse, Virginia, Virginia Tech) had two representatives, while Duke, North Carolina, NC State, Pitt and Wake Forest had one each.
Three student-athletes, Duke’s Hanna Mar, Miami’s Lina Lileikite and NC State’s Joelle Kissell, were named to the All-ACC Academic Team for the third time.
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 his academic career.
