    GREENSBORO, N.C. - The tradition of excellence continues in Atlantic Coast Conference women's soccer as the 2007 All-ACC Academic Team features a star-power contingent that includes an NSCAA Scholar Athlete of the Year, 10 all-conference selections, five NSCAA and/or Soccer Buzz All-Americans, four NSCAA Scholar All-Americans, two CoSIDA Academic All-Americans, a Soccer America Freshman of the Year, an ACC Defensive Player of the Year and an ACC Freshman of the Year, announced today by Commissioner John D.

    To be eligible for consideration, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during her academic career.

Both Maryland and Virginia collected a pair and NC State rounded out the 40-member squad with one nod.
