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

 Louisville’s Kelsi Worrell named Scholar-Athlete of the Year

GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) -- Louisville senior Kelsi Worrell has been named the 2015-16 Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Swimming & Diving Scholar-Athlete of the Year and headlines the All-ACC Academic Women’s Swimming & Diving Team, as announced today.

An exercise science major from Mt. Holly, New Jersey, Worrell captured two individual national championships in the 100 fly and 200 fly at the 2016 NCAA Championships, as she set the American and NCAA records with her 100 fly swim. She also earned All-America honors in the 50 freestyle, and the 200 and 400 medley relays. At the ACC Championships, Worrell was named the Championship Most Valuable Swimmer after she won five medals – including four gold – and set four records in the process.

After the season concluded, Worrell was named the Honda Sport Award winner for swimming and diving and the ACC Women’s Swimmer of the Year.

Miami’s Kara McCormack and North Carolina’s Emma Nunn earned their fourth career league academic accolade. NC State’s Alexia Zevnik and Natalie Labonge, North Carolina’s Annie Harrison, and Virginia’s Laura Simon, Kaitlyn Jones, Courtney Bartholomew, and Haley Durmer were recognized for the third 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.
