GREENSBORO, N.C. – Georgia Tech senior Brittany Roderick, junior Jordan McCullers and sophomore Asia Stawicka have each been named to the Atlantic Coast Conference All-Academic team, announced today by Commissioner John Swofford. To qualify for selection to the ACC All-Academic team, student-athletes must have earned a 3.0 grade-point average during the fall semester and have maintained a 3.0 GPA for their careers.
This marks the second straight season which Srawicka has been named to the All-Academic team, while McCullers and Roderick are first-time honorees. All three are Management majors at Georgia Tech.
“What a great accomplishment for Jordan, Brittany and Asia,” head coach Tonya Johnson said. “It’s a tribute to all of their hard work in the classroom. Academics and athletics is certainly a balancing act and they all seem to do it very well. I’m very proud of them, and hopefully we will see more Georgia Tech volleyball players on this list in the future.”
Roderick just completed her senior season starting in every match for the Yellow Jackets. She averaged 2/09 kills a set and was second on the team and ninth in the ACC with a .321 hitting percentage. She had 14 serving aces, 47 digs and 62 total blocks for an average of 0.53 a set.
McCullers also played in every match for the Yellow Jackets and was sixth in the ACC with 4.14 digs per set. She added 63 assists and 12 service aces. Stawicka, meanwhile, earned her second straight Academic team nod after ranking seventh in the ACC in hitting percentage (.331) and fifth in blocks (1.09). She also added 1.63 kills per set and 38 digs.
All 12 conference schools are represented on the 2009 ACC All-Academic Volleyball Team, led by Duke with six selections, followed by Georgia Tech, Maryland, North Carolina and Virginia with three picks apiece. Boston College, Florida State, Miami, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest each garnered two picks, while Clemson and NC State both had one honoree.
