CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Virginia junior midfielder Tara Vittese (Cherry Hill, N.J.) has been named the ACC Field Hockey Co-Offensive Player of the Week in honors announced today (Oct. 4) by the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Vittese helped lead the Cavaliers to a pair of victories over ranked opponents over the weekend. Vittese had a hand in the Cavaliers' third and fourth goals in the 4-2 win over No. 16 Wake Forest, scoring a goal of her own off of a penalty corner before sending in a perfect pass to set up a goal by Lucy Hyams. Against No. 14 Old Dominion, Vittese's play in the midfield helped stifle the ODU attack, holding the Monarchs to zero shots on goal. Offensively, she sent a long cross through the circle that was deflected in by Riley Tata for the Cavaliers' first goal and then converted a penalty stroke in the second half to give the Cavaliers a 2-0 victory.
Vittese was named the ACC Co-Offensive Player of the Week on Tuesday.
This is the fourth ACC Player of the Week honor Vittese has earned in her career, but her first this season.
Virginia will be back on the road next weekend, playing at No. 3 North Carolina on Friday, Oct. 7 at 6 p.m. The Cavaliers next home game will be on Saturday, Oct. 15 when they host No. 3 Syracuse.
