Louisville freshman Emina Ekic was named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Women’s Soccer team as announced today by the conference office.

Ekic made an immediate impact on the Cardinals in her rookie season. She started in 17 matches and led the Cardinals in scoring with 17 points. She also led the team with seven goals on the year and tied for the lead with three assists. She earned first team All-East Region by United Soccer Coaches Association. Ekic was also named ACC Co-Freshman of the Year while earning second team All-ACC honors. She was an ACC All-Freshman team selection as well.

The freshman ranked in the top 10 in shots, goals and points among the ACC leaders. She finished her first season with two multi point games, including a career-high two goals and one assist against Kentucky. Ekic finished the year with two game-winning goals.

The ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year awards were established in September of 2007 to be awarded annually to the top junior or senior student-athlete in their respective sports. Candidates for the awards must have maintained a 3.0 grade point average for their careers, as well as a 3.0 for each of the last two semesters.

Minimum academic requirements for selection to the All-ACC Academic Team are a 3.0 grade point average for the previous semester and a 3.0 cumulative average during one’s academic career. Athletic achievements during the most recent season are also considered in selecting the All-ACC Academic Team.

The ACC Honor Roll, which recognizes all conference student-athletes with a grade point average of 3.0 for the current academic year, will be released in July.
