Each week, ACC LIVE celebrates the conference's 50th anniversary by profiling a legendary figure from the ACC. This week, the show chronicles the rise and success of North Carolina women's soccer and its legendary coach, Anson Dorrance. The Tar Heels have won 17 of the 21 national championships and also have captured 14 of the 15 ACC crowns since the sport was given title status by the conference in 1987. UNC has a dominant record (511-23-11) in the 23-year history of the program. No other college program in any sport has come close to matching this record. Dorrance garnered the 500th win in school history last year as the Tar Heels beat Clemson (10/18/01).
