DURHAM, N.C. – Nine members of the Duke women’s lacrosse team were named to the 2019 All-ACC Academic Team, as announced Thursday by the conference office. Senior attacker and draw specialist Olivia Jenner led the group with her third career All-Academic selection.
Jenner was one of five student-athletes to earn a spot on the All-ACC Academic Team for the third time in her career. Junior Callie Humphrey and sophomore Charlotte North were selected to the squad for the second consecutive season and freshman Eva Greco, freshman Veronica Hineman, senior Ellie Majure, freshman Olivia Rubin, senior Michelle Staggers and senior Charlotte Tucci were all first time All-ACC Academic honorees.
The nine selections matched Notre Dame for the most in the conference.
Jenner was also one of the league’s nine players on the All-Academic Team to receive All-America recognition from the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association in 2019. In addition, Jenner and North were among the 19 student-athletes on the All-ACC Academic Team who were voted All-ACC this spring.
All eight ACC women’s lacrosse programs were represented on the 2019 All-ACC Academic Team, with Boston College’s Sam Apuzzo receiving ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year laurels.
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 Duke program has totaled 109 All-ACC Academic Team selections since the award’s inception in 2006, marking the highest number in the conference.
