CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – – Five members of the Virginia Men’s soccer team were honored by the Atlantic Coast Conference as the All-ACC Soccer Teams were announced Monday. Junior midfielder Nico Colaluca was named to the All-ACC First Team while senior forward Adam Cristman, sophomore forward Yannick Reyering and red-shirt freshman defender Bakary Soumare were named second team All-ACC.

Reyering leads the team with eight goals, seven assists and 23 points. He has four game-winning goals. It is the second straight year that he’s earned All-ACC honors as he was a first team selection in 2005.
Cristman is third on the team in goals (6), assists (4) and points (16). He earned second team honors for the second straight year.
In his first season playing in the back, Soumare helped the Cavaliers to seven shutouts and an 0.80 goals against average limiting teams to 13 goals in 16 games. He started 15 of 16 games and played 1,389 minutes.
