November 8, 2007

BLACKSBURG, Va. - Scott Dillie, a junior midfielder on the fourth-ranked Virginia Tech men's soccer team, was selected to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District III First Team. This is the second straight season Dillie has been recognized on the list, earning second-team accolades in 2006.

The junior from Pittsburgh, Pa., is majoring in business and has three goals and one assist this season to total seven points. Dillie has scored goals in two of Tech's last three matches, including the game-tying goal in the Hokies' 1-1 draw at then-No. 24 Duke on Oct. 25.

In addition to earning second-team all-district III honors last year, Dillie was selected to the Atlantic Coast Conference's All-Academic Team.

To be nominated, the student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.20 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) for his/her career. A student-athlete is not eligible until he/she has reached sophomore athletic and academic standing at his/her current institution. In the cases of transfers, graduate students and junior college graduates, the athlete must have completed one full academic year at the nominating institution to be eligible.

The No. 4 Hokies (10-1-5, 3-0-4 ACC) put their school record 15-match unbeaten streak on the line at No. 8 Boston College (11-4-1, 6-1-0 ACC) tomorrow at 7 p.m. in Chestnut Hill, Mass.
