CLEMSON, S.C. - Sloan Shanahan, McKenzie Talbert and Lauren Salazar were all named to the Academic All-ACC Women's Golf Team on Friday. The announcement was made by the ACC office in Greensboro, N.C.

Only six freshmen made the 30-person team and Clemson had three of the six. Six golfers who made first-team All-ACC on the course also made the academic team, including Shanahan.

Shanahan was one of two ACC freshmen to make both the All-ACC team and the Academic All-ACC Team. She was joined in that accomplishment by Daniella Darquea of Miami (FL).

As far as Clemson history is concerned, Shanahan is the second freshman to make All-ACC and Academic All-ACC in Clemson golf history (men or women). Ben Martin did it for the men's program in 2007. She is the eighth to do it in any sport, the first since Liz Jeukeng from he women's tennis team in 2013.

Shanahan raked second on the team in stroke average this year with a 73.97 stroke average, 10th in the ACC. She ranked 37th in the final Golfstat national ranking and was 58th in the final Golfweek/Sagarin ranking.

Talbert was third on the Clemson team in stroke average at 75.5, while Salazar was fourth at 75.56. All three of the women were big contributors to Clemson's number 14 final national ranking according to Golfstat and NCAA bid in the first year of the program.
