The University of Pittsburgh placed 244 student-athletes on the 2015-16 ACC Academic Honor Roll, as announced Thursday by ACC commissioner John Swofford.

Students who participated in a varsity-level sport and registered a grade point average of 3.0 or better for the full academic year qualified for the 60th annual ACC Honor Roll. Duke University led the way with 480 student-athletes on the Honor Roll, and Pitt’s 244 student-athletes recognized were the 10th-most out of 15 ACC programs.

The conference named a record 4,367 student-athletes to the Honor Roll this year, and Pitt had over 200 student-athletes recognized for the third straight time in three seasons as a member of the ACC.

2016 NCAA 3M champion diver Dominic Giordano was one of 14 ACC Men’s 2015-16 Performers of the Year to make the Honor Roll, while 22 ACC Women’s 2015-16 Performers of the Year made the cut.

Women’s track/cross country led all Pitt varsity programs with 42 student-athletes recognized.
