DURHAM, N.C.—The honors continue to roll in for Duke senior Jordan Wolf. The veteran attackman for the Blue Devils recently was voted to the Capital One Academic All-America ® At-Large third team for his outstanding efforts in the classroom and on the lacrosse field.

Wolf, a history major, is the fourth men’s lacrosse player to capture Academic All-America honors and the first since CJ Costabile earned third-team recognition in 2012. He is one of four ACC athletes to earn the honor and one of two men’s lacrosse players nationally to be recognized.

The at-large team includes the sports of fencing, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse rifle, skiing, swimming and diving, tennis, water polo for both men and women; and bowling, rowing and field hockey for women; and volleyball and wrestling for men.

A four-time USILA All-America selection and 2014 Tewaaraton Award finalist, Wolf left his mark as one of the best attackmen to wear a Blue Devil uniform. En route to leading the Blue Devils to a second straight NCAA Championship, he became the first player in ACC history and 12th in the NCAA history to record 100 points in a season as he finished with 103. His 64 goals this past season rank fourth in Duke single-season history, while the 103 points are tied for eighth in the NCAA single-season records book.

The 2014 ACC Offensive Player of the Year, Wolf is Duke’s first four-time All-ACC selection. He registered at least two points in all 20 games and posted 11 points (5g, 6a) during championship weekend to earn NCAA Championship Most Outstanding Player honors. Overall for the year, the 2014 first team All-American posted 13 hat tricks and had 12 games with five-plus points, including eight in the NCAA quarterfinal win over Johns Hopkins.

Wolf departs Duke ranked second in Duke and ACC history in career points (304) and third among all Blue Devils in career goals (183). He is the ninth player in NCAA history to reach the 300-point benchmark for his career and ranks eighth in all-time scoring on the NCAA charts. Wolf scored at least a point in 76 of his 81 outings and in each of his final 61 games. Over his four seasons, Duke amassed a 62-19 record, won the 2012 ACC title, advanced to four NCAA semifinals and ultimately won the 2013 and 2014 NCAA titles. He also earned All-ACC Academic honors in each of his four seasons and graduated in May with a 3.41 grade point average.

The Blue Devils captured their second NCAA title and third in five seasons in 2014. Duke finished 17-3 overall and 4-1 in ACC play.
