Three Virginia Women's Soccer Players Earn All-Atlantic Coast Conference Honors
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Three members of the University of Virginia women's soccer team have been named to the 1997 All-Atlantic Coast Conference first team. Sophomores Angela Hucles (Virginia Beach, Va.) and Megan Boehm (Columbia, Md.), and junior Karem Esteva (Westport, Conn.) were all selected to the all-conference squad. Hucles and Boehm are both first team All-ACC selections for the second straight season, while Esteva previously earned second team All-ACC honors in both 1995 and 1996.
Hucles, a 5-7 forward, is the leading scorer for the Cavaliers this season with 35 points on 15 goals and five assists. Her 35 points this year are the second highest single-season total in school history, behind only Andrea Rubio's 36 points in 1990. Hucles also ranks second on the single season list for goals scored with 15, behind only her own total of 17 last year. On the UVa career lists, Hucles currently stands seventh in points with 69, while ranking fifth in both goals (32) and game-winning goals (nine).
Boehm, a 5-11 goalkeeper, has played 15 games in goal for Virginia this season and has a 1.05 goals against average with 31 saves. She has two solo shutouts on the year, including one on the road against third-ranked Portland. Boehm, who ranks fifth all-time at UVa in career saves with 70, had a career-high eight saves at Clemson earlier this year.
Esteva, a 5-3 defender, has started every game of the season for the Cavaliers at sweeper. She has played 1,606 minutes on the year, more than any other player on the squad. Esteva has played the entire game in 16 of Virginia's 18 contests this season, while leading the UVa defense to a team goals against average of 1.21 on the year. During her career, Esteva has started all 60 of the Cavaliers' games.
The Cavaliers will be back in action tomorrow, Nov. 6, when they will face Clemson in the first round of the ACC Tournament. The game is set to begin at 3:00 p.m. at Spry Stadium in Winston-Salem, N.C.
