Charlottesville, VA – Junior Calle Nielson (Nashville, Tenn.) and freshman Brittany Altomare (Shrewsbury, Mass.) have been named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference women’s golf team. Nielson has been honored all three seasons she has competed at Virginia. Altomare is one of four freshmen named to the team.

Nielson becomes just the second Cavalier to pick up the honor three times. Former Cavalier Leah Wigger was an all-ACC performer four years in a row from 2004-2007.

Altomare joins Nielson and Wigger as the only UVa freshmen to receive the honor.

Altomare leads the Cavaliers with a 73.70 stroke average and is coming off a second-place finish at the ACC Championships. She was also second at the Fall Preview. Nielson is second on the team with a 74.04 stroke average. Altomare and Nielson are ranked fourth and fifth, respectively, in the ACC in scoring this season.

The Cavaliers open NCAA play this week as the No. 5 seed in the West Regional Championship held at the Stanford University Golf Course. Play runs Thursday through Saturday.
