NOTRE DAME, Ind. — Notre Dame women’s golfers Emma Albrecht, Maddie Rose Hamilton and Abby Heck have been named to the 2018 All-ACC Academic Team, the conference office announced on Thursday (June 21).
To be eligible for consideration for the All-ACC Academic team, a student-athlete, regardless of classification, must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during her academic career.
Albrecht, a Science-Business major, participated in all 10 tournaments for the Irish in 2017-18, posting a season stroke average of 72.31, setting the program record for lowest season stroke average. A co-medalist at the Bettie Lou Evans Invitational (Oct. 6-7), she was the first Notre Dame individual to win a tournament since Kristina Nhim in 2014.
A rising senior, this is Albrecht’s third career All-ACC Academic Team honor, having been named to the team in her freshman and sophomore years as well.
Hamilton, a Management Consulting major with a minor in Constitutional Studies, finished the season with a 73.86 stroke average while competing in all 10 events for the team. She tied her best-ever finish, shooting rounds of 70-73-73=216 (E), to tie for fourth at the Bettie Lou Evans Invitational (Oct. 6-7).
Heck, who earned Dean’s List honors as a freshman, is majoring in Mathematics with a Supplementary Spanish major and Life Sciences concentration. Starting in the top-five in all 10 tournaments, she finished her rookie campaign with a 74.75 stroke average, the third-lowest average on the team.
