GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Three Atlantic Coast Conference women’s soccer players have been named to the 2014 Capital One Academic All-America Team. Virginia senior midfielder Danielle Colaprico and Clemson senior midfielder Katelyn Reeve were named to the second team, while Virginia Tech senior midfielder Katie Yensen is a third-team selection.

Colaprico, the 2014 ACC Midfielder of the Year, has started every game this season for the Cavaliers. She has a career-high six goals and leads the ACC with 18 assists, setting the Virginia single-season assist record. Her assist in Sunday's 7-0 win over Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament round of 16 was the 43rd of her career, setting a new Virginia career record. The game was also her 97th career appearance for the Cavaliers, also a school record.

Colaprico, a psychology major with a 3.45 grade point average, is a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-District honoree.

Reeve, Clemson’s first Academic All-America award recipient in women’s soccer, owns a 4.0 cumulative grade point average and will graduate from Clemson in December 2014 with a degree in biological sciences. Reeve is one of just six student-athletes sporting a perfect 4.0 GPA of the 33 members on the Academic All-America team. The Cary, North Carolina, native has earned Academic All-District honors from CoSIDA two consecutive years, and has played in 72 games, starting 65, in four seasons with the Tigers.

Yensen, a biology major with a 3.97 grade point average, is tied for the all-time record for games played at Tech with 91 and is tied for second in the career game-winning goals category with 10. She earned the NCAA Elite 89 Award for the highest GPA at the 2013 NCAA College Cup.
Ten ACC teams were honored by the NSCAA with Team Academic Awards for posting a team grade point average of 3.0 or higher for the 2013-14 academic year, including Clemson, Duke, Florida State, Louisville, Miami, NC State, Notre Dame, Pitt, Virginia and Virginia Tech.
