The ACC announced its 2010 All-ACC Men's Lacrosse team today, and while the Cavaliers have been nationally ranked No. 1 all season until just this past week, and the Hoos are top-seeded in this weekend's ACC Championships, Virginia placed only two on the list, compared to Duke and North Carolina's three and Maryland's four. Nothwithstanding, senior Ken Clausen on defense and sophomore Steele Stanwick on attack were both named to the All-ACC squad.
Ken Clausen leads the Cavaliers with 40 groundballs and 26 caused turnovers. He's the 12th UVa player to be a two-time first-team All-American, and has won All-American accolades three times. He's started every game in his college career, and is one of this year's team captains. He is also a candidate for the 2010 Tewaaraton Trophy.
Steele Stanwick has had a breakout season this year, leading the team with 21 assists and second on the team with 21 goals. He was named the 2009 ACC Rookie of the Year and was named to the second team pre-season All-American by Faceoff Yearbook.
Clausen, Stanwick, and the rest of the Cavaliers head into action Friday at 5:00 p.m. in the semifinals of the ACC Championships. The top-seeded Cavaliers will rematch fourth-seeded Duke, the only team to have dealt Virginia a loss this season.
