Eight Hurricanes Earn All-ACC Academic Distinction

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — Eight members of the University of Miami baseball team were tabbed to the All-ACC Academic Team, the league office announced Friday afternoon.

The eight selections match a program record set in 2019.

Herick Hernandez (economics), Antonio Jimenez (public relations), Jake Kulikowski (Sport administration), Slaide Naturman (sport administration), Nick Robert (sport administration), JD Urso (liberal studies), Brian Walters (sport administration) and Gage Ziehl (sport administration) were among the 172 student-athletes recognized with academic accolades by the ACC.

Seven Hurricanes received the prestigious honor for the first time in their careers, with Ziehl becoming the fourth Hurricane to be a three-time recipient, joining fellow pitchers Bryan Garcia (2014-16), Evan McKendry (2016-18) and Andrew Walters (2021-23).

Requirements for selection to the All-ACC Baseball Academic Team are a 3.0 grade point average for the previous semester and a 3.0 cumulative average during one’s academic career. In addition, position players must compete in at least 50 percent of their team’s contests and pitchers in 20 percent.
