GREENSBORO, N.C. - Florida State senior Kim Williams has been recognized as the 2011 Atlantic Coast Conference Women's Indoor Track & Field Scholar-Athlete of the Year for the second consecutive year, announced today by Commissioner John Swofford. Williams highlights the 2011 All-ACC Academic Women's Indoor Track & Field Team, which includes 16 All-ACC honorees.

To be eligible for All-ACC Academic Team consideration, 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 or her academic career.

A four-time All-ACC Academic selection, Williams repeated as the Women's Indoor Field Performer of the Year after winning conference titles in both the long jump (6.55m) and triple jump (13.96m). The sport management major from Kingston, Jamaica, became the first four-time ACC champion in the triple jump. She wrapped up her third consecutive NCAA championship in the triple jump, registering a mark of 13.96m. Williams also claimed All-America accolades in the long jump, taking second with a leap of 6.40m. Her 18 points at the national meet helped the Seminoles finish ninth overall, the highest among the league's women's teams. She was recently honored as the South Region Women's Field Athlete of the Year by USTFCCCA.

Joining Williams as both an All-ACC and All-ACC Academic selection were Caroline King of Boston College, Kim Ruck and Marlena Wesh of Clemson, Juliet Bottorff, Amy Fryt and Devotia Moore of Duke, Michelle Jenije of Florida State, Joanna Wright of Georgia Tech, Kiani Profit of Maryland, Miranda Wilson of Miami, Ashley Verplank of North Carolina, Samira Burkhardt, Kelly Phillips and Asia Washington of Virginia Tech and Anna Nosenko of Wake Forest.
