DURHAM, N.C.-Eight members of the Duke University men's soccer team were named to the All-ACC Academic Team the league office announced on Feb. 25. The Blue Devils led all programs with eight selections. Two other schools, NC State and Maryland, both had five picks.

Duke's Jonathan Aguirre, James Belshaw, Rob Dolot, Temi Molinar, Nick Sih, Matthew Thomas, Christopher Tweed-Kent and Andrew Wenger all were recognized for their efforts on the field and in the classroom.

The 2010 ACC Defensive Player of the Year and All-ACC first team honoree, Wenger garnered the honor for the second consecutive season. He joined Belshaw as two of the eight All-ACC honorees during the year who were selected for the team.

Aguirre and Dolot were two of five rookies chosen by the league. Aguirre also was an All-Freshman Team  honoree.  Overall, Belshaw, Molinar, Sih, Thomas, Tweed-Kent and Wenger all garnered recognition for a second time and for Sih it is the third straight time on the team.
