CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Miami senior setter Nrithya Sundararaman has been named the 2012 Atlantic Coast Conference Volleyball Scholar-Athlete of the Year and headlines the 2012 All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Volleyball team, as announced today by Commissioner John Swofford.

"This year has been a whirlwind of good news, on and off the court," Sundararaman said. It's a huge honor to receive an award of this magnitude."

A neurobiology major, Sundararaman is the seventh Miami student-athlete across all sports to earn ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year honors and is the second straight Hurricane in volleyball. The Naperville, Ill., native graduated a semester early with Magna Cum Laude honors and was named to the Capital One Academic All-American Second Team.

On the court, Sundararaman led the league in assists with 10.72 per set and finished her career third in program history with 2,358. She earned honorable mention AVCA All-America, All-ACC, and AVCA All-Region honors.

Eleven schools are represented on this year's All-ACC Academic Team, led by Duke, Georgia Tech, Maryland, and Miami with four apiece. Clemson and North Carolina had three student-athletes recognized. Boston College, Florida State, NC State, Virginia Tech, and Wake Forest all had two players honored.

The ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year awards were established in September 2007 to be awarded annually to the top junior or senior student-athlete in their respective sports. Candidates for the awards 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 consideration for the All-ACC Academic Team, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during her academic career.
