JUST AS ACCOMPLISHED ACADEMICALLY


Koelzer isn't only successful on the court. She also has many academic awards to her credit. This year alone, she was the recipient of the ACC's Weaver-James-Corrigan Postgraduate Scholarship and was named to Clemson's Athletic Hall of Fame. At the CLEMMYs (Clemson's athletic and academic awards banquet for student-athletes), she was named the ACC Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year, for maintaining a cumulative GPA of 3.50 or higher, being an outstanding citizen and role model, serving in leadership positions and performing community service, in addition to performing with distinction as a member of a varsity team, earning conference, regional, and/or national recognition. Also at the CLEMMYs, Koelzer was named to Clemson's All-Academic Team, for having the highest GPA on the women's tennis team. Previously, Koelzer has been named to the All-ACC Academic Team (2014) and Clemson's President's List, for having a 4.0 GPA in a given semester.

Koelzer also has impressive career goals for herself after she is done playing tennis:

"I have always been interested in Broadcasting. I would like to work for a TV station and broadcast tennis matches, or any other sporting events. I also would love to write and work in the communications field. I could imagine working for a company such as Nike and running their social media accounts and developing the internal communications within the company."
