GREENSBORO, N.C. (seminoles.com) – Florida State placed five student-athletes on the All-Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Soccer team as announced by the league office and Commissioner John Swofford on Thursday, November 3.
The Seminoles led all schools with three first-team honorees, while the five total all-conference players tied for the second most among the league schools.
This year’s first-team accolades from Florida State included senior midfielder Tori Huster, junior forward Tiffany McCarty and junior defender Ines Jaurena. Freshmen Dagny Brynjarsdottir and Jamia Fields earned a spot on the All-ACC Freshmen Team.
McCarty was named to the All-ACC first team for the second time in her career (2009) after finishing the regular season with 32 points on 14 goals and four assists including four game-winning goals in 19 games. McCarty is currently tied for the ACC lead in points and goals, while she led all players with 17 points (seven goals and three assists) against conference foes in 2011. The Laurel, Md., native became the all-time leading goal scorer at Florida State this year surpassing Cindy Schofield at the top of the list. She needs just two points to become the school’s all-time scoring leader, a spot currently held by Schofield with 102 career points. McCarty becomes just the fifth Seminole to be named a two-time first-team All-ACC honoree joining Amanda DaCosta (2008, 2010), India Trotter (2004, 2005, 2006), Selin Kuralay (2005, 2006) and Schofield (2001, 2002).
Huster earns All-ACC recognition for the second year in a row. Following second-team all-conference honors in 2010, Huster grabs a spot on this year’s first-team. The senior midfielder has started all 19 games for the Seminoles in 2011 and currently sits second on the team in goals (6) and shots (28) and is tied for second in points with 14. Huster tied a career-high with three points in the regular season finale at Virginia Tech with a goal and an assist to help the Seminoles clinch a spot in the ACC Tournament. The six goals scored by Huster this season ties a career-high set last year. The Cincinnati, Ohio native has been a mainstay in the midfield for Florida State since she arrived on campus back in 2008 as she ranks seventh all-time in career starts with 84.
Jaurena rounds out FSU’s All-ACC first-team selections, a year after being named to the second team. The French native has started all 19 games in the Seminole backline this year and ranks second in minutes played with 1,696. She has helped Florida State to nine shutouts this year including three in the last four and a big shutout victory over North Carolina in double overtime of the ACC Tournament Quarterfinals. The junior defender has also helped on the offensive side of things with nine points on three goals and three assists. Two of her three goals have gone done as game-winners.
Brynjarsdottir and Fields have been solid contributors for the Seminoles in their first year at FSU. Fields has appeared in all 19 games for Florida State this year making 10 starts. She is tied for the team lead in assists with six and ranks fifth in points with 10. Fields, a native of Alta Loma, Calif., led all Seminoles with four assists against league opponents in 2011. Brynjarsdottir has appeared in 14 matches making 13 starts all in the midfield. She has tallied nine points in over 1,000 minutes of action with three goals and three assists. Twice this year Brynjarsdottir tied a career-high with three points in a game as she scored a goal and an assist in a pair of road games at Florida and Virginia. The native of Iceland scored the game-winner in a 1-0 victory over Boston College.
Florida State returns to the state of North Carolina on Friday, November 4 when they take on second-seeded Virginia in the second semifinal of the ACC Tournament in Cary, N.C., at WakeMed Park. Match is set for 7:30 p.m. and can been seen on ESPN3.com.
