Weber, a junior from Wangen, Germany, boasts a 3.79 cumulative GPA in health science. She was also named second-team Academic All-District III by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) this year.

She also was crowned ACC champion in the pentathlon in February, her second championship in the last three years.
