Release: 04/20/2017

GREENSBORO, N.C. – RJ Alowonle, Anna Eaton, Alexis Gannon, Emily Godwin, Nicole Greene and Darryl Shaw were selected to 2017 All-ACC Academic Indoor teams, which was announced by the Atlantic Coast Conference on Tuesday.

This is the first All-ACC Academic Team for Eaton, Gannon and Shaw, while Greene, Alowonle, Godwin and Howard are veterans to the honor. Greene has earned All-ACC Academic honors during her first three seasons as a Tar Heel. The senior veterans of Alowonle and Godwin have earned All-ACC Academic honors five times, while Howard has been named to the team seven times.

To be selected to the All-ACC Academic Team, athletes must have earned at least a 3.0 grade point average during the previous semester and a 3.0 cumulative average during their academic career. They must also have excelled on the track, and every member of the All-ACC Academic Team has earned All-America or All-ACC honors, scored points for their team at the ACC Indoor Championships or was named an ACC Performer of the Week during the regular season.

The ACC Honor Roll, which includes all ACC student-athletes that have earned a 3.0 grade point average during the current academic year, will be released in July.
