Louisville’s Aimee Plumb, the Junior forward from Canterbury, Kent, England, has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Field Hockey Scholar Athlete of the Year, in a much-awaited announcement made by the league today. Plumb’s remarkable achievements on and off the field have earned her the recognition she deserves.

Plumb led the Louisville team in scoring last season, finishing with a career-best eight goals, seven assists, and 23 points. Her five game-winning goals ranked third in the ACC, making her one of the most prominent players in the league. Plumb’s exceptional performance has earned her the second-straight NFHCA All-America honor, and she is also a two-time NFHCA All-West Region and All-ACC selection. Her recognition as the ACC Field Hockey Scholar Athlete of the Year follows in the footsteps of Alli Bitting, who received the same honor in 2021.

Plumb has been a true student-athlete, maintaining a 4.0 GPA throughout her college career, majoring in psychology with minors in art and Spanish. Her academic excellence is evident from her being a five-time Dean’s Scholar at Louisville, a two-time NFHCA Division I National Academic Squad Member, and earning a place on the ACC Academic Honor Roll in her first two seasons.

In addition to Plumb, the All-ACC Field Hockey Academic Team comprises of 18 student-athletes, a program-record for the University of Louisville. These student-athletes, including Izzy Bianco, Chloe Cuzzupe, Mia Duchars, Sasha Elliott, Embry Jane (EJ) Imorde, Emilia Kaczmarczyk, Julie Kouijzer, Tatum Kroon, Kelsey McCrudden, Sophia Parker, Sofia Pendolino, Caroline Pusey, Jane Ramsay, Katie Schneider, Mattie Tabor, Minna Tremonti and Riley Wollerton, have maintained a 3.0 GPA for the previous semester and a cumulative average of 3.0 throughout their academic career. They have also competed in at least 50% of their team’s contests.

In conclusion, the University of Louisville can be proud of its exceptional student-athletes, who have not only demonstrated remarkable performance on the field but also remarkable academic achievements. The ACC Field Hockey Scholar Athlete of the Year and the 18 student-athletes on the All-ACC Field Hockey Academic Team are a testament to the University’s commitment to academic and athletic excellence.
