Cascarano (Glenview, Ill.) is a history major and owns a 3.01 cumulative GPA. Coley (Virginia Beach, Va.) is an African-American and African studies major and owns a 3.01 cumulative GPA.  Snyder (Glen Allen, Va.) is an environmental sciences major and is posting a 3.2 cumulative GPA.

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 his academic career. All 12 ACC schools were represented by at least one selection to the team.
