BLACKSBURG, Va. - Virginia Tech forward Ashley Stinson has been named to the Soccer Buzz Freshman All-America second team. She becomes the first player to earn All-America honors of any kind in women's soccer for Tech.

The Acworth, Ga., native set numerous records during her freshman campaign, earning Atlantic Coast Conference Freshman of the Year honors along the way. Stinson set the school single-season record for goals (17), points (39), shots (75) and consecutive games with at least one point (8). She also led the Hokies with five game-winning goals and shots on goal (42).

Stinson led the ACC in goals, shots and points per game. She finished 13th nationally in goals per game, netting 0.89 a contest. Stinson was 16th nationally with 2.05 points per game. Her five game-winning goals placed her second in the ACC in that category, behind only Duke's Casey McCluskey.

After just one season, Stinson is near the top in several career marks at Tech. She is fifth on the all-time goals scored list, seventh on the points list, 11th in shots and 13th on the assist list.

Stinson helped Tech earn a spot in the NCAA Championships for the first time, while the Hokies finished the season with an 11-9 mark. It was their first winning season in school history.
