GREENSBORO, N.C. - Virginia women's soccer senior forward Caroline Miller (Rockville, Md.) was named the ACC Women's Soccer Player of the Week conference officials announced Tuesday. It was the second consecutive week that Miller was honored by the league.
Miller was honored for the final week of the regular season as she led Virginia to a 5-1 win over No. 22 Boston College on Thursday. She had a goal and an assist in the Cavaliers' five-goal second-half explosion after trailing 1-0 at halftime. The goal was her 10th of the season in conference play, making her the first player in four years to score double-digit goals during the ACC regular season.
Miller continued her strong play on Sunday as postseason play began. She scored the goal in Virginia's 1-0 win at No. 8 North Carolina in the ACC Quarterfinals.
The award is Miller's fifth career ACC Player of the Week honor, setting a new record for a Virginia player. Miller had been tied with Angela Hucles (1996-99) and Meghan Lenczyk (2007-10), who both had four career awards.
The Cavaliers (14-4-1) continue play in the ACC Tournament on Friday with a semifinal matchup with Florida State (16-2). Game time at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C. is 5 p.m. and the game will be broadcast online by ESPN3.
