CHARLOTTESVILLE – Virginia women’s soccer senior midfielder Danielle Colaprico (Freehold, N.J.) was named to the Capital One Academic All-America Women’s Soccer Team, announced Tuesday by the Collegiate Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). Colaprico, who earned Academic All-America honors for the first time, was named to the second team.
Colaprico, the 2014 ACC Midfielder of the Year, has started every game this season for the Cavaliers. She has a career-high six goals and leads the ACC with 18 assists, setting the Virginia single-season assist record. Her assist in Sunday’s 7-0 win over Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament round of 16 was the 43rd of her career, setting a new Virginia career record. The game was also her 97th career appearance for the Cavaliers, also a school record.
Colaprico, a psychology major with a 3.45 grade point average, is a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-District honoree. To be eligible for the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team, student athletes must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average.
The fourth-ranked Cavaliers (21-2-0) look for their second consecutive trip to the NCAA Women’s College Cup when they play top-ranked UCLA (21-0-2) in a NCAA Tournament quarterfinal Friday in Los Angeles.
