CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Cavalier senior All-American Michelle Vizzuso (Fairfield, N.J./West Essex) was named the ACC Player of the Week after recording four goals and three assists in the Cavaliers’ 3 wins over the week. Virginia, ranked first in the nation, defeated #7 Northeastern 5-3 and #16 Massachusetts 2-0 as well as Appalachian State 9-0.
