Nov. 6, 2013
Chestnut Hill, Mass. -Boston College junior Emma Plasteras was named to the 2013 All-Atlantic Coast Conference First Team on Wednesday afternoon, as voted on by the league coaches. The award marks the second in the midfielder's career as she earned All-ACC honors last year as well.
"What an amazing accolade for Emma to receive," head coach Ainslee Lamb said. "Being recognized by the top coaches in the country in the top conference in the country is a phenomenal accomplishment. We know the impact that Emma has on our team and this certainly reinforces that the conference sees her as a key player in our program."
The North Vancouver, B.C., native leads the No. 11 Eagles in goals (11), assists (11), points (33) and game-winning goals (4). She is also tied for fourth in the ACC for points, tied for sixth for goals, tied for third in game winners and ranks fourth in assists. Last season, aside from her All-ACC accolades, she was named to the ACC All-Tournament and the NFHCA All-America Second Team.
All seven of the league's teams were represented on the All-ACC squad, led by six student-athletes from top-ranked Maryland and four apiece from No. 8 Duke and No. 2 Syracuse. No. 3 North Carolina and No. 4 Virginia both had three honorees while No. 15 Wake Forest had two represented.
