CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Virginia senior Elly Buckley was named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference Field Hockey Team in honors announced by the conference office today (Nov. 6).
Buckley (Scarborough, Perth, Australia) is one of just 11 players in conference history to earn All-ACC honors four times, joining Cavalier alum Paige Selenski (2008-10, 2012) on that elite list.
This season, the conference expanded All-ACC honors to include a second team with Virginia senior Carissa Vittese (Cherry Hill, N.J.) and freshman Lucy Hyams (Whitstable, Kent, England) earning second-team honors.
Buckley leads the ACC in shots (129), shots per game (6.79), points (47), points per game (2.47), goals (20), goals per game (1.05) and defensive saves (5). She has 10 more points and five more goals than Jill Witmer of Maryland, who is second in both categories. Buckley has taken almost twice as many shots as North Carolina's Nina Notman who is in second place with 68 shots. Buckley ranks fourth in the NCAA in points per game and seventh in goals per game.
Hyams has 10 assists this season, ranking her fifth in the conference. Hyams is the only freshman currently ranked in the top-10 in the ACC in assists. Hyams is tied for second on the team with 20 points with five goals in addition to her assist tally.
Vittese has played defensive sweeper for the Cavaliers this season, helping to lead Virginia to six shutouts. Vittese made the game-deciding shot in the sudden-death penalty shot in the 2-1 victory over Richmond (Sept. 11) this season.
The No. 4 Virginia field hockey team (15-4, 3-3 ACC) will take on No. 8 Duke (13-5, 3-3 ACC) on Thursday, Nov. 7 at 11 a.m. in the opening game of the 2013 ACC Tournament, being held at Boston College in Newton, Mass.
