Oct. 5, 2010
GREENSBORO, N.C. - Florida State midfielder Rachel Lim and Virginia forward Meghan Lenczyk have been named Atlantic Coast Conference Women's Soccer Co-Players of the Week.
Lim helped the now nationally ninth-ranked Seminoles maintain sole possession of first place in the ACC standings as she led wins over fellow ranked opponents Wake Forest and Duke. Lenczyk scored five points in two ACC matches, including the overtime goal last Sunday that lifted the sixth-ranked Cavaliers to a 3-2 win over No. 1 Boston College - Virginia's first women's soccer victory over a top-ranked team.
Lim's goal against No.19 Wake Forest on Sept. 30 gave the Seminoles to a 1-0 win in overtime. The Boca Raton, Fla., senior came back with the game-tying goal in Sunday's match against No. 16 Duke, allowing Florida State to regain the momentum and go on to a 3-1 win. Lim, who also earned a spot on the Top Drawer Soccer National Team of the Week, helped the Seminoles improve to 9-2 overall and 3-0 in ACC play.
Lenczyk, who earned her second ACC Player of the Week honor of the season and the third of her career, delivered her ACC-leading fifth game-winning goal of the season in the milestone victory over Boston College. The goal moved her into the eighth spot on Virginia's all-time career goals list (33) and ninth in career points (77). The McLean, Va., senior also had a hand in both scores (one goal and one assist) of the Cavaliers' tough 3-2 loss at No. 5 Maryland on Sept. 30. Lenczyk has a goal or assist in each of Virginia's three ACC matches thus far.
Lenczyk was also named a CollegeSoccer360 Primetime Performer of the Week, along with Florida State goalkeeper Kelsey Wys.
