Oct. 14, 2014 CHARLOTTESVILLE – Virginia senior midfielder Danielle Colaprico (Freehold, N.J.) was named ACC Women’s Soccer Player of the Week, conference officials announced Tuesday. Colaprico tallied two goals and four assists last week to lead the Cavaliers to a pair of victories.
Colaprico guided Virginia to a 6-3 win over Boston College on Thursday and a 6-0 win over NC State on Sunday, as the Cavaliers became the first ACC team in six years to post at least six goals in consecutive conference games. Colaprico had a goal and two assists in each game, tying a career-high for points in a game with four and recording the sixth and seventh multi-assist games of her career. She leads the ACC with 11 assists this season, ranking in the top five nationally, and is the ACC active leader with 36 career assists.
The award is the first of Colaprico’s career and the second for a Cavalier this season. Brittany Ratcliffe (Williamstown, N.J.) was honored the previous week after scoring Virginia’s game-winning goal at Notre Dame.
Colaprico’s honor was one of three player of the week awards for Virginia announced Tuesday. Junior midfielder Kaili Torres (Fleming Island, Fla.) was recognized as the Top Drawer Soccer Player of the Week after posting a goal and four assists in the wins over Boston College and NC State. Junior forward Makenzy Doniak (Chino Hills, Calif.), who had three goals and two assists in the victories, was named the College Soccer Madness ACC Player of the Week.
The fourth-ranked Cavaliers (13-1, 5-1 ACC) will begin a three-game road trip on Oct. 19 at Louisville. It will be the first all-time meeting between the schools and will mark Virginia’s first trip to the state of Kentucky.
