UNC’s Carter Named Freshman of the Year; Clemson’s Harris Named Coach of the Year
GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – North Carolina freshman Jamie Loeb has been selected the 2014 Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Tennis Player of the Year and leads the 2014 All-ACC Team as announced by Commissioner John Swofford.
In addition to Loeb, the Tar Heels’ Hayley Carter also took home one of the league’s top honors, as she was named Freshman of the Year. Clemson’s Nancy Harris was named the ACC Coach of the Year for the first time in her career.
Individual honors, as well as the All-ACC teams, were determined by a vote of the league’s 15 head coaches.
Loeb, a native of Ossining, N.Y., is just the third North Carolina student-athlete to earn Player of the Year honors, while Carter is the first Tar Heel to earn Freshman of the Year honors.
Harris, who led the Tigers to a share of the ACC regular season title for the first time since 2007, becomes the second Clemson head coach to earn Coach of the Year honors, joining Andy Johnston who won the award four times – most recently in 1993 - during his time with the Tigers.
Thirteen ACC institutions had representatives on the All-ACC team, led by Virginia with four representatives. North Carolina, Duke, Miami and Clemson had three representatives apiece. Florida State, Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech each posted two honorees on the teams, while Boston College, Maryland, NC State, Notre Dame and Syracuse rounded out the list with one representative apiece.
Duke’s Ester Goldfeld and Hanna Mar, along with NC State’s Joelle Kissell, were All-ACC selections for the third time in their career. A total of nine student-athletes collected All-ACC honors for the second time in their career.
