Perri Garners Fourth ACC Honor

CLEMSON, S.C. – The Atlantic Coast Conference has selected Leah Perri to her third consecutive Academic All-ACC Team. Overall, this is the health science major’s fourth honor received from the ACC, as she was named to the ACC All-Freshman Team in 2013.

Perri is just one-of-four student-athletes on the list of 30 to have received the honor three times. Matalee Reed of Wake Forest earned her third academic nod from the ACC in her senior season and Paige Neuenfeldt along with Katty Workman each earned their fourth.

The Richland, Michigan native is coming off her best collegiate season as she finished her junior year with career bests in kills (412), attempts (1,358), digs (213) and points (461.5). She recorded her 1,000th career kill, along with the seventh most kills in the conference (421) and the seventh best kills per set average (3.68).

Minimum academic requirements for selection to the All-ACC Academic Team are a 3.0 grade point average for the previous semester and a 3.0 cumulative average during one’s academic career for undergraduate students. Athletic achievements during the most recent season are also considered in selecting the All-ACC Academic Team.

The ACC Honor Roll, which recognizes all conference student-athletes with a grade point average of 3.0 for the current academic year, will be released in July.
