CLEMSON, SC – Clemson women’s track and field All-American Gisele Oliveira was named to the 2004 CoSIDA Academic All-District III first team, announced Thursday. The junior from Porto Alegre, Brazil, boasts a 3.95 cumulative GPA and is majoring in marketing. This is the second all-district honor for Oliveira, as she was named to the first team in 2003.
Oliveira is Clemson’s all-time leader in the triple jump and ranks second on the Lady Tigers’ list in the long jump. She is the 2004 ACC Champion in the triple jump, and holds the ACC’s all-time and meet records in the event. Oliveira will represent Clemson at the 2004 NCAA Outdoor Championships, after capturing the East Region triple jump title with a career-best mark of 44’10.75″. She owns the third-best triple jump mark of the year by a collegian entering the NCAA Championships. This will be her third appearance at the outdoor national meet, as she placed third in the triple jump at the 2003 championships. A year ago, she also earned All-America distinction in the long jump, finishing seventh in Sacramento. Oliveira is the first Lady Tiger in Clemson women’s track and field history to advance to the NCAA Championships in the triple jump for three consecutive years as she earned All-America honors in the triple jump in 2002 with a seventh-place finish.
She was named to the 2002 US Track and Field Coaches Association All-Academic Team in recognition of her academic and athletic achievements. She is also a member of the 2001-02 and 2002-03 ACC and Clemson Academic Honor Rolls.
