DURHAM, N.C. – The Duke field hockey team has been named a recipient of a 2017 Zag Field Hockey/NFHCA Division I National Academic Team Award, as announced by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association Tuesday.

The Division I National Academic Team Award recognizes those programs that earned a team GPA of 3.00 or higher during the fall semester of the 2017-18 academic year.

Duke was one of 74 Division I programs to be recognized for the academic honor, joining Boston College, Louisville, North Carolina, Syracuse, Virginia and Wake Forest from the ACC. The Blue Devils have received a National Academic Team Award from the NFHCA in each of head coach Pam Bustin’s seven seasons at the helm of the program.

Earlier this spring, Duke led the ACC with a league-high eight selections to the 2017 All-ACC Academic Field Hockey Team, featuring the most student-athletes on the academic team for the fourth consecutive year.

The Blue Devils made their 16th NCAA Tournament appearance in 2017, reaching the quarterfinal round for the fifth consecutive year. Duke rounded out the season at 17-4.

The NFHCA will announce the Scholars of Distinction later this week, followed by the National Academic Squad next week.
