DURHAM, N.C.-For the second time in a week, Duke University junior Andrew Wenger garnered All-America first team honors, earning the accolade from College Soccer News. Wenger most recently was named a MAC Hermann Trophy Finalist and a NSCAA First Team All-American.

Wenger is one of four players from the ACC represented on the first team and one of six selected overall on the three teams. This marks the second consecutive year the Lititz, Pa., native has received first team recognition from College Soccer News.

After two years of anchoring Duke's defense at center back, Wenger moved forward to headline Duke's offense in 2011. He led the ACC with 17 goals and 42 points overall and currently ranks fourth nationally in total points and sixth in total goals. A starter in every game for Duke over the past three years, Wenger has reaped nearly every ACC award possible. He 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, a three-time All-ACC first team recipient, is the first player since Jay Heaps to collect All-ACC first team honors in each of his first three seasons. His 17 tallies in 2011 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.

 Equally as successful in the classroom, Wenger became the second Blue Devil in program history to earn CoSIDA Academic All-America first team honors and has earned spots on both the All-ACC Academic Team and ACC Academic Honor Roll each of his three seasons.

For his career, Wenger has started all 58 games, played all but 131 minutes in that span and scored 21 goals and 13 assists for 55 points.

The Blue Devils finished the year with an 11-8-3 overall record and advanced to the NCAA Tournament second round for the third consecutive season.
