Women's Soccer Tourney Kicks Off
The North Carolina women's soccer team plays its first match of the 2001 ACC Tournament at 5:30 p.m. against eighth-seeded N.C. State.
This year's tournament is being held in Winston-Salem at Wake Forest's Spry Soccer Stadium.
North Carolina finished the ACC season 7-0 while the Wolfpack was winless in seven conference games.
The two teams played last Thursday in Chapel Hill with UNC winning 4-2. The Wolfpack has never defeated the Tar Heels.
UNC hasn't lost the conference title since 1988 when the Tar Heels tied N.C. State to share the title.
Wednesday, the All-ACC Team, All-Freshman Team and Coach of the Year were announced.
Anson Dorrance won Coach of the Year after leading UNC to a perfect regular season, while five players made the All-ACC squad and two rookies made the All-Freshman team.
