Majoring in Finance, the Litomerice, Czech Republic, junior earned NCAA All-South Regional honors after capturing the meet’s individual title and leading Florida State to its 10th consecutive NCAA Championship appearance. At the ACC Championship in Blacksburg, Va., Zivec finished 13th individually as the Seminoles placed third.
