Tamburini named to All-ACC Academic Men's Soccer Team

BLACKSBURG – The ACC league office announced its Men’s Soccer All-ACC Academic Team Thursday morning. The Hokies were represented by defender Elias Tamburini who earned his first selection.

Tamburini played every minute for the Hokies in 2017 helping guide Tech to the NCAA Tournament for the second consecutive season.
