ACC Champs!

Autumn leaves fell and so did ribbons of toilet paper adorning the Quad's trees as Wake Forest celebrated its first ACC Championship in four years. Congratulations to the Wake Forest field hockey team, which defeated Syracuse University 2-0 on Nov. 9.

It was the team's first ACC championship since 2006, and the first ACC title for the University since the women's soccer team won in 2010. Anna Kozniuk and Georgia Holland were named ACC Players of the Year, while head coach Jennifer Averill was named ACC Coach of the Year for the 7th time.

"It’s just surreal," Averill told the Old Gold & Black after the championship win. "It was the longest sixteen minutes (of the game) in our lives, but hats off to the group, they just killed it. They executed the game plan to the best of their abilities. … It was such a great team effort and I'm so proud of them." Read about the impressive victory.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Maria Henson
