GREENSBORO, N.C. – Sophomore Emily Schwitzer and freshman Carly Seymour were among 24 selections to the 2008 All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Women’s Cross Country Team, it was announced today by ACC Commissioner John D. Swofford.

To be eligible for consideration, 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.

Seymour and Schwitzer were the Blue Devils’ 1-2 finishers, respectively, at the Roy Griak Invitational, the Penn State Invitational, and at the NCAA Southeast Regional in 2008. Schwitzer also led Duke at the ACC Championships as she took 18th overall at the conference meet.
