GREENSBORO, N.C. – Wake Forest volleyball’s Kylie Long and Caroline Wolf were selected to the All-ACC Academic Team, the league office announced on Wednesday.

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 for undergraduate students. Athletic achievements during the most recent season are also considered in selecting the All-ACC Academic Team.

Both players are making their second appearance on the All-ACC Academic Team, as Long made it as a junior and Wolf as a sophomore.

A graduating senior from Plano, Texas, Long finished 2017 with 446 kills, which led the team and was second in the ACC. She also finished second on the team with 227 digs.

Long concluded her Wake Forest career second in program history with 1,581 kills. She passed Katie Horne, who had 1,570, in her final match on Nov. 24 against NC State. With 950 digs in her career, she is 12th on the all-time Demon Deacon list. She joins Valerie Rydberg and Trina Maso de Moya as the only Deacs to record at least 1,000 career kills and 950 digs.

Wolf, a graduating senior from Naperville, Illinois, set the school record for career digs against Pittsburgh on Nov. 10. Wolf ended her career with 2,091 digs, surpassing Trina Maso de Moya previously held record of 2,010. At the end of her career, she was seventh among active players in career digs.

“Since I arrived at Wake Forest, Caroline and Kylie have been the driving force for the program on and off the court,” said head coach Bill Ferguson. “This is one more example of their leadership. It is only fitting that they should finish their careers with this honor, which truly exemplifies the wonderful role models they are.”
