GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Miami junior Stephanie Wagner has been named the 2015 Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Tennis Scholar Athlete of the Year and headlines the 2015 All-ACC Academic Women’s Tennis Team, as announced today by the conference office.
An economics major from Amberg, Germany, Wagner finished the season ranked No. 9 in singles and No. 21 in doubles, garnering First Team All-ACC and ITA All-America honors. The junior compiled a 21-8 record in singles, including 11-3 in the ACC and 13-4 at the No. 1 position, culminating with a semifinals appearance at the NCAA Singles Championship. In the classroom, Wagner earned honors on the Dean’s List, Athletic Director Honor Roll and Book Buster Club.
Fourteen ACC schools are represented on this year’s All-ACC Academic Team, led by Clemson and Miami with four honorees apiece. Duke, Florida State, Georgia Tech and Syracuse each had three representatives while Louisville, NC State and Wake Forest garnered two honorees. North Carolina, Notre Dame, Pitt, Virginia and Virginia rounded out the group with one apiece.
One student-athlete, Miami’s Lina Lileikite was named to the All-ACC Academic Team for the fourth time. Three others were named to the team for the third time: Florida State’s Daneika Borthwick, Georgia Tech’s Megan Kurey and Miami’s Stephanie Wagner.
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 her academic career.
