CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Former Cavalier and current Real Salt Lake defender Bret Halsey (Sterling, Va.) along with second year Andreas Ueland (Bryne, Norway) were honored as All-Atlantic Coast Conference selections on Wednesday (April 14). The Cavaliers have placed multiple student-athletes on the All-ACC team every year since 1983.

Halsey landed on the All-ACC second team after playing every game in the fall. He went on to sign a Generation Adidas contract and became the seventh overall pick of Real Salt Lake in the 2021 MLS SuperDraft in January. The midfielder started all 31 matches that he appeared over the course of three seasons on grounds including his final 27 matches. Halsey was a two-time ACC All-Tournament selection and tallied four points (1g, 2a) on Virginia’s NCAA Runner-Up squad in 2019.

Ueland collected his second-straight Third Team All-ACC honor after appearing in 13 of the 16 Cavalier matches of 2020. Ueland played every minute of the first eight matches this season after not coming off the field in all 24 matches of his freshman season. The Cavalier center back was a part of four of Virginia’s six clean sheets in 2020 and scored the game-winning goal on a successful penalty kick attempt against Syracuse on Oct. 30, 2020. He was also credited with an assist the second goal of a 3-0 win over George Mason on March 2, 2021
