TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Announced by the league office on Tuesday, three Florida State women's tennis players were named to the All-ACC Academic Team. Francesca Segarelli and Amy Sargeant grabbed their second-career honors, while Daneika Borthwick earned her first.
"I'm very proud of the efforts that our team continues to make in the classroom," head coach Jennifer Hyde said. "They continue to be highly successful not only on the court but in the academic arena as well. All of our ladies continue to do a fantastic job of representing Florida State Athletics."
Florida State was one of four schools that placed three ladies on the All-Academic Team.
On the court, Sargeant played an outstanding senior season, finishing with an overall singles record of 30-5. The Birmingham, England left her mark on the FSU record books in two categories for a season - ranking second in singles winning percentage (.857) and third in singles wins (30-5).
