Berkeley - Seven athletes from the women's swimming team have been selected to the Pac-10 All-Academic teams for the 2007-08 season, as announced by the conference office on Thursday.
Senior Emily Verdin, who was a second-team academic choice last year, earned first-team accolades this season. Sophomore Lauren Boyle and senior Kelly Stravers (now a three-time selection) garnered second-team honors, while Alexandra Ellis, Blake Hayter, Lauren Rogers (honorable mention in 2007) and Dana Vollmer all secured honorable mention nods.
