Multiple Jackets Receive All-ACC Academic Honors

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech track and field has placed a total of 33 student-athletes (17 men, 16 women) on the 2023 All-ACC Outdoor Track & Field Academic Teams, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced on Monday.

Academic requirements for selection to the All-ACC Indoor Track and Field Academic Team are a 3.0 grade point average for the previous semester and a 3.0 cumulative average during one’s academic career. In addition, student-athletes must have competed in the ACC Outdoor Championships and/or NCAA Outdoor Championships during the most recent season.

The list features several Jackets who made waves in the postseason. At the conference level, junior Shanty Papakosta stood out to become the women’s high jump ACC outdoor champion after taking home the gold in the same event during ACC indoor championships earlier in the spring. On the men’s side, senior Jamir Gibson highlights the Yellow Jacket honorees as he followed bronze medals in the shot put in both the ACC outdoor and indoor championships with double all-American honors as an honorable mention in the shot put and discus from the NCAA outdoor championships.
