2015-16 All-ACC Academic Men’s Swimming & Diving Team Announced

Virginia Tech’s Brandon Fiala named Scholar-Athlete of the Year

GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Virginia Tech junior Brandon Fiala has been named the 2015-16 Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Swimming & Diving Scholar-Athlete of the Year and headlines the All-ACC Academic Men’s Swimming & Diving Team, as announced today.

A finance and accounting major from Centreville, Virginia, Fiala earned First Team All-America honors in the 200 individual medley, 100 breastroke, and 200 breastroke at the NCAA Championship. At the ACC Championship, Fiala set two meet records to go with his three medals, two gold and one silver and was named the Championship Most Valuable Swimmer.

NC State’s Derek Hren and Virginia Tech’s Fiala earned their third career league academic accolade. Twenty-one other individuals were recognized for the second 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.

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.
