Greensboro, NC -
Virginia senior Leah Wigger (Louisville, Ky.) and sophomore Jennie Arseneault (Grinnell, Iowa) were named to the 2007 All-Atlantic Coast Conference women's golf team the league office announced today. The squad is selected by the ACC's head coaches. For Wigger, its marks the fourth consecutive season she has been named an All-ACC player. It is the first time Arseneault has received the recognition.
Wigger, who is currently ranked No. 10 by Golfweek, leads Virginia this season with a 73.56 stroke average heading into this week's NCAA East Regional Championship in Baton Rouge, La. She was Virginia's top finisher in seven of the nine tournaments she played and posted six top-10 finishes. Wigger won Georgia's Liz Murphey Classic, was the runner-up at the Fall Preview and was fourth at the ACC Championships.
Arseneault is ranked second on the Cavalier squad with a 74.61 stroke average. She had three top-10 finishes in the fall and been UVa's top finisher in three tournaments this season. She has been slowed this spring due to a sore back that forced her to withdraw from two events.

The Blue Devils were represented by senior Anna Grzebien, junior Jennifer Pandolfi, sophomores Jennie Lee and Amanda Blumenherst and freshman Alison Whitaker, the ACC Freshman of the Year.
