May 2, 2011

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Atlantic Coast Conference Champion North Carolina placed two players on the 2011 All-ACC Women’s Golf team, while also capturing Coach of the Year honors for Jan Mann, as selected by the league’s nine head coaches.

North Carolina captured their second team title since 1992 at the 2011 ACC Women’s Golf Championship in April. The Tar Heels were represented by Catherine O’Donnell, who earned her third- straight All-ACC accolade, while teammate Allie White secured her second All-ACC selection, the first being in 2009.

Wake Forest secured three players on the All-ACC team in Atlantic Coast Conference individual medalist Cheyenne Woods, her second straight All-ACC honor, third-time honoree Natalie Sheary and Michelle Shin, who was named to the team for the second-straight year. This marks the third consecutive year that Wake Forest has captured the individual medalist honors at the ACC Championship.

Duke and Virginia each placed two players on the team. Duke was represented by Player of the Year Lindy Duncan and Freshman of the Year Laetitia Beck. Duncan was the Atlantic Coast Conference Player and Freshman of the Year in 2010. Duke has claimed at least a share of Player of the Year honors for eight straight years and has captured Freshman of the Year accolades for two consecutive years. Virginia was represented by Calle Nielson, who earned her fourth-straight accolade, and Brittany Altomare who garnered her second consecutive honor.

Florida State, Maryland and Miami rounded out the 12-member team with one selection each. Florida State junior Maria Salinas made her debut on this year’s All-ACC team. Maryland’s Jessica Hollandsworth earned her third-straight honor. Miami’s Maria Ronderos earned her first All-ACC accolade and was the first Miami player to make the All-ACC team since Tina Miller and Josie Shinn in 2005.

North Carolina’s Jan Mann was chosen as the league’s Coach of the Year, her second such honor in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Mann was selected Coach of the Year in 2005 while coaching at Virginia. North Carolina finished 24 strokes ahead of second place Duke at this year’s ACC Championship.
