Eleven of the twelve ACC schools that sponsor men’s swimming and diving are represented on the All-Academic Team, led by NC State with eight student-athletes. Duke and Louisville have six apiece, while Georgia Tech has five, Florida State and Virginia Tech have four and Notre Dame, Pitt and Virginia all have two representatives, followed by Boston College and North Carolina with one honoree each.

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.
