ATLANTA – Twenty-five members of the Georgia Tech women’s track & field team were named to the Atlantic Coast Conference Honor Roll announced by the league office on Wednesday. NCAA All-Americans, senior Brandy Depland and junior Ashlee Kidd, led the way for the Yellow Jackets.

The ACC Academic Honor Roll, now in its 50th year, is comprised of all ACC student-athletes who participated in a varsity-level sport and registered a grade point average of 3.0 or better for the full academic year.

Depland, a three-time All-American in the triple jump, set the school record in the indoor triple jump earlier this year with a personal-record of 44 feet, 9 ¾ inches. She qualified for her second straight NCAA Outdoor Championships as an at-large selection.

Kidd, a six-time All-American, earned her sixth nod with a personal-record time of 51.57 in the finals of the 400-meter dash at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. She recently won a Gold medal at the NACAC Under 23 Championships as part of the USA 4x400m relay team that set a new meet record with a time of 3:29.05. Kidd broke the ACC Indoor Championship records in the 200- and 400-meter dash with school record times of 23.37 and 52.61, respectively and was named the ACC Indoor MVP.
