Georgia Tech softball’s Sara Beth Allen, Mallorie Black, Grace Connelly, Chandler Dennis, Madison Dobbins, Ella Edgmon, Emma Kauf, Blake Neleman, Kinsey Norton, and Sophia Voyles were selected to the 2023 All-ACC Academic Team, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced on June 27. The announcement of 10 honorees marks the most for the team in a single season in program history. Each student-athlete named to the All-ACC Academic Softball Team has maintained a career GPA of 3.0 or higher and posted a 3.0 GPA or higher in the most recent semester. Along with each honoree’s academic achievements, athletic contributions played a role in each selection as all five position players participated in at least 50% of the team’s games while both pitchers appeared in a minimum of 20% of the contests throughout the 2023 season.
