TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –  Nine members of the Florida State swimming and diving teams captured their first career All-ACC Academic honors as both the men’s and women’s teams were announced by the league office on Tuesday.

“I am very proud of the achievements of these athletes,” head coach Frank Bradley said. “These ladies and gentlemen have worked their tails off both in the pool and in the classroom and they’ve held up to the student-athlete standard.”

Junior Cole Hensley, sophomore Dylan Grisell along with freshmen Tyler Roberge and Anthony Lyons were represented on the 39-member men’s list, while seniors Kaitlyn Dressel and Katrina Young, sophomore Lydia Ware and rookies Natalie Pierce and Caroline Gerhardt were among the 50 athletes named on the women’s side.

To be eligible for consideration for the All-ACC Academic Team, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during her academic career.

In addition to their achievements in the classroom, all nine competed at the 2015 ACC Championships in Atlanta, while  went on to compete at the NCAA Championships with four taking All-America accolades.

“Each of these athletes had a great deal of success for us this season,” Bradley said. “I am proud of what these ladies and gentlemen did this season and for those returning, hopefully they can continue to compete at a high level both in the pool and in the classroom.”
