GREENSBORO, N.C. Kyle Convissar and Kevin Mooney have been named to the 2014 All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Baseball Team, the conference announced Thursday.

Convissar, a four-time honoree, is the only member of this year’s team with such a distinction. Mooney is a first-time honoree.

Convissar, who graduated this past spring with a degree in finance, completed his coursework with a 3.99 GPA and earned a spot on the 2014 CoSIDA Capital One Academic All-America Division I Baseball Team. He became the first Maryland baseball player to be named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America team since Todd Kilmer in 1995.

The native of Severna Park, Md., finished the season with a .242 average with five doubles, a home run and 16 RBI. He also posted a .404 on-base percentage.

Mooney, a first time honoree, produced an impressive sophomore campaign in 2014. The rising junior tied a Maryland single-season record for saves with 13 ranking third in the ACC and will begin next season with 22 career saves, one shy of the school record.

The native of Forest Hill, Md., who is majoring in geographical sciences, finished the 2014 season with 26 appearances, the second-highest total on the team, and posted a 1-2 record and a 4.33 ERA.

To be eligible for consideration for the All-ACC Academic team, a student-athlete, regardless of classification, must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career.

Florida State’s Gage Smith was named ACC Baseball Scholar-Athlete of the Year for the second consecutive season. To view a complete list of the All-ACC Academic Team, visit
