GREENSBORO, N.C. - Three members of the University of Miami rowing team were named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Team, the league office announced this week. Freshman Hannah Hawks, sophomore Breanna Hayton and junior Kata Horvath earned the honor after recording at least a 3.0 grade point average in the winter semester and maintaining at least a 3.0 career GPA.
"I'm incredibly proud of the accomplishments of Hannah, Breanna and Kata," said head coach Andrew Carter. "They've done terrific things on the water for our team and clearly they've done terrific things in the classroom as well. This is what we strive for on this team."
Hawks, a native of Mooresville, N.C., was named the ACC Freshman of the Year at the ACC Championships in April as a member of the 1V boat. She is majoring in Communications/Broadcast Journalism at UM.
Hayton, an Aerospace Engineering major, picked up her second academic honor this year, as she was also named a Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association Scholar-Athlete. The sophomore was a member of the All-ACC Team after a successful season and is originally from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
