Tallahassee, FL - Florida State University volleyball seniors Jenna Romanelli, Stephanie Neville and Taylor Wilson capped their careers in style on Friday when they were named to the 30-member All-ACC Academic Volleyball Team.

Neville, a double major in marketing and finance, is a two-time All-ACC Academic Team honoree. She was one of eight All-ACC Team members who was named to the prestigious academic list, enjoying her finest year as a senior outside hitter.

Romanelli, a mainstay as the team’s libero, is also a two-time honoree. She is a double major in exercise science and dietetics who ranks among the best in school history in career digs.

Academic standout Wilson earned a spot on the All-ACC Academic Team for the first time. She is an interior design major who was named to the ESPN The Magazine All-District Team for two consecutive years. The libero from Clearwater, Fla., was a vital piece in resurrecting FSU’s volleyball program in her four years.

All 12 conference schools were represented on the 2010 All-ACC Academic Volleyball Team, led by Duke with five selections, followed by Maryland with four. Florida State and Georgia Tech each had three student-athletes honored. Boston College, Clemson, Miami, North Carolina, NC State, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest each garnered two recognitions, while Virginia had one.

The ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year award was established in September 2007 and is awarded annually to the top junior or senior student-athlete in his/her respective sports. Candidates for the award must have maintained a 3.0 grade point average for their career as well as a 3.0 for each of the last two semesters.

To be eligible for All-ACC Academic Team 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 his/her academic career.
