CHARLOTTESVILLE - Hunter Jumper, a sophomore defender on the Virginia men's soccer team, was named to the 2009 All-ACC Academic team, the conference announced Wednesday. Jumper, an instrumental member of the Cavaliers' NCAA Champion squad, earned the honor for the second-consecutive year.

The Plano, Texas, native started 24 games for UVa in the backfield and registered a goal and four assists for six points. The Cavalier defense posted 17 shutouts en route to the 2009 NCAA Championship.
