Feb. 27, 2013

GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Sixteen NCAA All-Regional honorees, including nine All-ACC performers and six All-Americans, secured spots on the 2012 All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Women’s Cross Country Team as announced today by Commissioner John Swofford.

To be eligible for 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 her academic career.

Duke’s Juliet Bottorff was selected as the 2012 ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year for Women’s Cross Country. After missing the entire 2011 campaign due to an injury, Bottorff led the Blue Devils to a seventh-place finish at the 2012 NCAA Championships, garnering All-America honors with a 27th place finish. A senior majoring in Neuroscience, the Newark, Del., native also earned NCAA All-Southeast Region honors finishing second out of a field of 247 runners and pacing Duke to the team title. At the ACC Championship in Blacksburg, Va., Bottorff placed third individually as the Blue Devils finished second to Florida State.

In addition to Bottorff, All-ACC Academic team members who earned All-ACC honors this past fall are Boston College’s Julian King and Liv Westphal, Duke’s Kelsey Lakowske, Florida State’s Collen Quigley, Kayleigh Tyerman and Amanda Winslow, Virginia’s Catherine White and Wake Forest’s Nicole Irving.
