DURHAM, N.C.-Duke University junior Andrew Wenger has been selected as a semifinalist for the 2011 Missouri Athletic Club's Hermann Trophy. Wenger is one of two repeat selections among the 15 semifinalists.

Wenger was named a semifinalist in 2010 after being named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year and to the NSCAA All-America first team. He is one of four players from the ACC to be represented with North Carolina and Maryland also having players selected.

Wenger moved up to the forward position this season after two years at center back for the Blue Devils. He paced the Blue Devils offense this season with 17 goals and eight assists for a league-high 42 points. His 17 tallies are tied for the most in Duke single-season history, while the 42 points are fifth and the most since Brian Kelley had 43 in 1995. In 2011, he registered at least one point in 11 games and twice had a career-best seven points. Wenger netted two hat tricks on the year and had five multiple-goal games.

The Lititz, Pa., native was selected as the 2011 ACC Offensive Player of the Year, completing the trifecta of ACC major awards after being named the ACC Rookie of the Year and ACC Defensive Player of the Year in 2009 and 2010, respectively. Wenger is the first player since Jay Heaps to collect All-ACC first team honors in each of his first three seasons.

Equally as successful in the classroom, Wenger has earned spots on both the All-ACC Academic Team and ACC Academic Honor Roll each of his three seasons. For his career, the Lititz, Pa., native has started all 58 games, played all but 131 minutes in that span and scored 21 goals and 13 assists for 55 points.

Duke finished the year with an 11-8-3 record, advancing to the NCAA Tournament second round for the second consecutive year.
