In addition to Kitley, who was also chosen the ACC Player of the Year, Notre Dame’s Sonia Citron (Blue Ribbon Panel Rookie of the Year) also earned a spot on the All-ACC Academic Team.

Eight first-team All-ACC honorees garnered the accolade, including Clemson’s Delicia Washington, Florida State’s Morgan Jones, Louisville’s Emily Engstler and Hailey Van Lith, NC State’s Elissa Cunane, Notre Dame’s Maya Dodson and Olivia Miles, and Virginia Tech’s Kitley.

Boston College’s Marnelle Garraud and Notre Dame’s Dara Mabrey collected All-ACC Academic Team honors for the fourth time in their careers.

Louisville, Syracuse and Virginia Tech tied for the conference lead with five selections each, while NC State and Notre Dame each placed four student-athletes on the team. Ten student-athletes earned the honor for the third time.

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.
