Kelsey Wys Named @ACCWSoccer Player of the Week for September 24


GREENSBORO –  Florida State senior goalkeeper Kelsey Wys has been named the ACC Women’s Soccer Player of the Week, as announced Tuesday by the league office. It is her third player of the week honor of her career as she earned it twice during the 2012 season.

Kelsey Wys was a stalemate between the posts last week in leading the Seminoles to 1-0 victories over No. 5 North Carolina and NC State to stay undefeated in ACC action. Wys was credited with a pair of shutouts to push her league leading total to seven on the season.


The Coral Springs, Fla., native played all 90 minutes in both matches.  She faced 20 shots and totaled 11 saves, including a season-high nine in FSU’s win over North Carolina.


The win over the Tar Heels on Sept. 18 was the Seminoles’ third straight in the series, becoming just the third program to perform such feat in against UNC in the program’s storied history. Florida State’s five all-time wins versus UNC are the second most of any other school in its history.


Against NC State on Sept. 22, Wys stopped two shots, including a diving save on a 1-v-1 opportunity midway through the second half with the game still knotted at zero.


ACC play continues on Thursday, Sept. 26 with all 14 teams in action.
