CARY, N.C. (Seminoles.com) - Juniors Kerrie Cartwright and Daneika Borthwick were named to the All-ACC teams as announced by the conference on Wednesday. Cartwright earned Second Team honors while Borthwick was selected for the Third Team. This is Borthwick's second All-ACC honor of her career.
"I am very pleased for both Kerrie and Daneika to have received recognition on the All-ACC team this season," said head coach Jennifer Hyde. "They both have led our program all season at the top positions and currently hold a top-45 ranking in the country in doubles, as well. This is a much deserved accolade for them both.
"I think it speaks volumes to what is ahead for them into the postseason, and more importantly what is ahead for them in their senior season next year. I think both of their futures are very bright and I am so excited for them to receive this recognition from our ACC coaches."
Cartwright has posted a 22-13 record in singles this year along with a 5-3 mark at the No. 1 position. She has four wins over ranked opponents and recently defeated Miami's No. 54 Kelsey Laurente in a straight set match in Tallahassee on April 11, 6-4, 7-6 (3). Cartwright is currently ranked No. 123 in the country in singles.
Borthwick has an 18-13 record in singles in 2013-14 and a 5-2 mark on court two. She has two ranked wins this season and was leading No. 33 Daniella Collins of Virginia, 6-0, 1-2 when the overall match was decided.
Borthwick and Cartwright have also paired up in doubles and are play phenomenally right now. They have won their last seven matches including wins over No. 26 Koroleva and Gumulya of Clemson (8-5) and No. 11 Elbaba/Pierson of Virginia (8-5). The pairing is now ranked No. 44 in this week's ITA doubles poll.
