Syracuse’s Kayla Treanor named ACC Women’s Lacrosse Scholar-Athlete of the Year

2016 All-ACC Academic Team Announced

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Syracuse senior Kayla Treanor has been named the 2016 Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Lacrosse Scholar-Athlete of the Year and headlines the All-ACC Academic Women’s Lacrosse Team, as announced Monday by Commissioner John Swofford. 

Treanor - the three-time Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Division I Attacker of the Year, Tewaaraton Award finalist and ACC Offensive Player of the Year - led the Orange and shared the ACC’s top total with 90 points that included a team-high 50 goals and 40 assists. The Niskayuna, New York, native ranks fourth on the NCAA Division I all-time scoring list with 393 points, and her 260 goals are the sixth-highest in Division I history. Treanor also set the Division I single-season record with 217 draw controls in 2016. 

All eight of the league’s women’s lacrosse programs are represented on the All-ACC Academic Team, led by Syracuse with seven selections. Duke and North Carolina each placed six on the team, Notre Dame had five and Louisville had four, while Boston College and Virginia each had three, and Virginia Tech one. 

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. 

Minimum academic requirements for selection to the All-ACC Academic Team are a 3.0 grade point average for the previous semester and a 3.0 cumulative average during one’s academic career. Athletic achievements during the most recent season are also considered in selecting the All-ACC Academic Team. 

The ACC Honor Roll, which recognizes all conference student-athletes with a grade point average of 3.0 for the current academic year, will be released in July.
