GREENSBORO, N.C. – Clemson University distance runner Logan Morris has been named a 2018 All-ACC Academic Cross Country selection, the conference office announced Thursday. The honor is Morris’ second All-ACC Academic distinction of her career in cross country, having been recognized in 2016, and fourth overall between cross country and outdoor track (2017-18).
Morris, an industrial engineering major, qualified for the 2018 NCAA Cross Country Championship meet after becoming Clemson’s 22nd All-Region recipient. Morris achieved a historic sixth-place finish at the 2018 Southeast Regional meet after running a 6K personal-best 20:01.4 at the Winthrop Coliseum and Farm Course in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Additionally, Morris paced the Tiger women all season long in six meets, including the 2018 ACC Championships, which were held in Boston last October.
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. Athletic achievements during the most recent season are also considered in selecting the 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.
