2013 All-ACC Academic Men’s Soccer Team announced

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Notre Dame senior forward Harrison Shipp has been named the 2013 Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Soccer Scholar-Athlete of the Year and leads the sport’s All-ACC Academic Team, as announced Wednesday by Commissioner John Swofford.

Shipp, a finance major from Lake Forest, Ill., was recognized as the Capital One Academic All-America of the Year and was named the Scholar All-America Player of the Year by the NSCAA. The ACC Offensive Player of the Year, Shipp tallied team highs in goals, assists, and points and led the Irish as team captain to the program’s first national championship. A unanimous First Team All-American, he was also a finalist for the MAC Hermann Trophy.

Boston College’s Chris Ager and Maryland’s Patrick Mullins claimed their fourth career All-ACC Academic honor. Boston College’s Ryan Dunn, Clemson’s Alexander Stockinger, Duke’s Nathaniel Eggleston, NC State’s Matt Ingram and Fabian Otte, Virginia Tech’s Kyle Renfro, and Wake Forest’s Andrew Lubahn all earned their third career academic league accolade.

All 12 schools that compete in men’s soccer are represented on this year’s All-ACC Academic Team, led by Notre Dame with six honorees. Three student-athletes on the team also earned All-America honors, while three additional players were named Freshman All-Americans. Fourteen members of the squad earned either All-ACC or All-ACC Freshman honors.

The ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year award was established in September 2007 to be awarded annually to the top junior or senior student-athlete in their respective sports.  Candidates for the award must have maintained a 3.0 grade point average for their career as well as a 3.0 for each of the last two semesters.

To be eligible for consideration for the All-ACC Academic team, a student-athlete, regardless of classification, must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career.
