Greensboro, NC – The ACC placed four schools among the top 25 of the final 2016-17 Division I Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup Standings, and nine member institutions rank among the top 50.

North Carolina leads all ACC schools with a No. 5 ranking, followed by Florida State at No.13, Virginia at No. 19 and Notre Dame at No. 23.

This marks the 16th consecutive year that four or more ACC schools placed among the top 30 in the final rankings. North Carolina and Virginia are among two of only 12 schools nationally to rank in the top 30 of the final Directors’ Cup standings in each of the program’s 24 years of existence.

In the league’s 64-year history, ACC institutions have captured 150 team national championships and 303 individual NCAA titles. The past academic year saw four ACC teams claim national championships – Clemson in football, North Carolina in men’s basketball, Notre Dame in fencing and Virginia in men’s tennis.

The 2016-17 academic year marked only the 10th time that one conference claimed both the college football and men’s basketball national titles in the same year and the third time in ACC history.

The Learfield Directors’ Cup was developed as a joint effort between the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and USA Today. Points are awarded based on each institution’s finish in up to 20 sports in Division I – 10 men’s and 10 women’s.

Winston-Salem, NC – The Wake Forest women’s golf program announced its 2017-18 schedule on Monday (July 3), featuring eight regular season tournaments prior to postseason play. The Demon Deacons will play four events in the fall and four regular season events in the spring, including co-hosting the Bryan National Collegiate.

Wake Forest Women golf“We are excited about our upcoming schedule with the strength of fields we will face and the quality of the courses we will play,” said head coach Dianne Dailey. “Our fall schedule has some great tournaments, from playing the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island to ending the fall in Cabo. The spring schedule features many of the great tournaments we have played in recent years, in addition to adding an event at Auburn, which should be fun. Overall, it is a very competitive and balanced schedule that will prepare us well for the postseason.”

The Demon Deacons will play four events in the fall, beginning with the Cougar Classic, which will be held this year at Kiawah Island, S.C. The Deacs return to the Mercedes Benz Collegiate in Knoxville, Tenn in September before defending their title at the Lady Tar Heel Invitational in Chapel Hill in October. The fall schedule concludes in November with Wake Forest’s first foreign trip in eight seasons and its first tournament in Mexico at the Baylor-Texas Collegiate in Cabo San Lucas.

The spring season will once again begin in February with the Northrop-Grumman Regional Challenge in Palos Verdes, Calif. After a return trip to the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate in Hilton Head, S.C., in early March, the Deacs will make their first appearance at the Evans Derby Experience in Auburn, Ala.

Wake Forest will conclude the regular season as it co-hosts the 21st annual Bryan National Collegiate with UNCG at Bryan Park in Browns Summit from Apr. 6-8.

The ACC Championship returns to Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, Apr. 20-22. This year’s NCAA Regionals will be hosted by Florida State, Stanford, Texas and Wisconsin before the NCAA Championship will take place at Karsten Creek Golf Club in Stillwater, Okla.

Durham, NC – Luke Goldstock and Chris Cloutier tallied hat tricks and Stephen Kelly won 10-of-11 faceoffs in the fourth quarter as fourth-seeded North Carolina defeated third-seeded Notre Dame, 14-10, to claim the 2017 ACC Men’s LacrosseChampionship on Sunday at Koskinen Stadium.

The defending national champion Tar Heels, who entered the weekend needing two wins to finish the regular season above .500 and remain eligible for selection to the NCAA Tournament, defeated the top two teams in the country in the NCAA RPI en route to the championship.

With the win, the Tar Heels improve to 8-7 on the season, claiming the 13th title in program history and ninth in the tournament era. Both North Carolina and Notre Dame will find out their postseason fate when the selections are announced at 9 p.m.on Sunday, May 7, on ESPNU.

“That’s 18 to 22 year olds, coming out there and understanding that their season will end if you lose,” said Joe Breschi, who won his second career ACC title and first since 2013.

“We talked about a 64-team tournament. To achieve some of your goals – an ACC Championship and an NCAA Championship – you had to win six straight. We won two, we won the ACC Championship and now we wait and see.”

Luke Goldstock led the way for the Tar Heels on Sunday, scoring four goals for his sixth hat trick of the year.

Named the Most Valuable Player, Chris Cloutier posted three goals on Friday and three on Sunday to go along with three assists for nine total points in the tournament.

“It’s hard to believe,” said Cloutier on the Tar Heels having their backs against the wall in April. “But it’s also something that pushes us too. It’s a lot easier to play when it’s your last game if you lose, and that motivation pushed us forward.”

Brendan Gleason scored three goals on Sunday to lead the Irish offense for his first career hat trick. Brian Balkam stopped 11 shots in net for the Tar Heels, while Shane Doss made 12 saves in the loss for Notre Dame.

North Carolina jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead despite losing the first five faceoffs. Andy Matthews tallied his 12th goal of the season in the first minute of the game, followed by William Perry converting on a man-up opportunity and Cloutier at even strength. Jack Lambert, who had one goal in his career entering the weekend, tallied one on Sunday and his third of the tournament to give North Carolina a four-goal edge.

Bryan Costabile got the Irish on the board late in the first quarter, his fourth of the tournament.

Notre Dame’s Gleason scored the first goal of the second quarter, but the Tar Heels got the next three from Justin Anderson and two from Cloutier to push their lead to 7-2 as Cloutier completed the hat trick.

Drew Shantz notched his sixth of the season for the Irish with four minutes left in the second quarter to make it a 7-3 Tar Heel lead going into halftime.

After Timmy Kelly scored for North Carolina to open the second half, Notre Dame strung together three straight goals from Costabile, Gleason, and Pierre Byrne to get to within two goals heading to the fourth quarter.

The Tar Heels scored three straight in just over two minutes to open the fourth quarter and provide some cushion. Tanner Cook took advantage of an extra-man opportunity to end the drought for North Carolina, followed by Luke Goldstock and William Perry to give North Carolina an 11-6 lead.

Notre Dame tallied the next two goals, with Brian Willetts notching his third of the season and Gleason completing his hat trick to get to within three goals of the Tar Heels.

North Carolina continued to answer every run from Notre Dame as Goldstock scored three goals in the fourth quarter in just under six minutes to clinch the victory.

Notre Dame won 10-of-12 faceoffs in the first half and 3-of-5 in the third quarter, but North Carolina’s Stephen Kelly was 10-of-11 in the fourth quarter to limit any comeback effort from the Irish.

“The big difference in the game were those fourth quarter faceoffs,” said Breschi. “Kelly turned the whole game around winning 10-of-11 faceoffs in the fourth quarter.”

North Carolina was 3-for-5 on extra-man opportunities, while Notre Dame went 1-for-6.

Sanford, NC – Chris Brown will represent Central Carolina Community College in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division III Men’s Golf Championship to be played June 6-9 at Chautauqua Golf Club in Chautauqua, N.Y.

Chris BrownBrown, a freshman from Sanford, recently shot a 75 at Whispering Pines Country Club and an 81 at Anderson Creek Golf Club for a two-day total of 156 in winning the NJCAA Division III Region 10 tournament by two strokes. With the win, Brown was named NJCAA Region 10 Player of the Year.

“Winning the individual regional championship was very exciting. This is my first win at the collegiate level and will give me a chance to represent the school at the national competition,” said Brown.

“The regional championship was definitely one of my best moments as a golfer. I have only been in contention in one other tournament, which was the Brick Capital Classic at Sanford Municipal Golf Course,” said Brown. “Even though I struggled the second day, I felt being in that situation prepared me to deal with some of the pressure you face when trying to go out and win the tournament.”

Brown, who played golf for four years at Lee County High School, led CCCC as low scorer in all tournament play this year.

“Chris has worked hard on his game this season and is very deserving of his success. He improved his course management throughout the season and that helped him lower his scores,” said CCCC Golf Coach Jonathan Hockaday.

“One of the things that makes Chris a good golfer is that he is tough-minded and is able to put bad holes and shots behind him and focus on what he needs to do to get the round back on track,” said Hockaday.

Hockaday offered this advice for Brown as he enters NJCAA Division III championship play: “My advice to Chris is to continue to play with confidence and have fun with it. A lot of players don’t get an opportunity to play in the national championship, so enjoy the experience.”

Raleigh, NC – Many of the best collegiate wrestlers in America will be on competing this Saturday when NC State hosts the 63rd Annual Atlantic Coast Conference Wrestling Championship at newly-renovated Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh, North Carolina.

ACC Wrestling ChampionshipDoors open Saturday at 10 a.m. with the Opening Round bouts scheduled for 11:03 a.m., followed by the Semifinals (1 p.m.), the Consolation Semifinals (3:30 p.m.), the Consolation Finals (5 p.m.) and the Championship Finals (7:03. p.m.).

Tickets at the door are priced at $7 for adults, $5 for youth (17 and under); children aged two and under are admitted free of charge. ACC students with valid IDs are also admitted free.

All bouts of the Championship will be streamed live on ACC Network Extra, which is available through the WatchESPN App. Shawn Kenney and Dean Linke are handling the play-by-play and Tim Foley and Rock Harrison providing the expert analysis.

During the preliminary rounds the action will be streamed live from both mats, moving to one mat for the finals on Saturday evening.

In all, 34 ACC wrestlers will be on hand who have been nationally ranked by the NCAA’s Coaches Rankings, and 16 of them have been ranked in the Top 10 of their respective weight classes with NC State’s Kevin Jack (Danbury, Connecticut) ranked second nationally at 141 and Virginia Tech’s Joey Dance (Christiansburg, Virginia) and Ty Walz (Cleveland, Ohio) ranks third nationally at 125 and 285 pounds, respectively.

Nine ACC wrestlers who have previously earned All-American honors will also be competing in the Championship, including Jack, Dance, Walz, North Carolina’s Joey Ward (141, Cincinnati, Ohio) and Ethan Ramos (174, Hawthorne, New Jersey), and Virginia Tech’s Solomon Chishko (149, Jeannette, Pennsylvania), Zach Epperly (174, Christiansburg, Virginia), Zack Zavatsky (184, Latrobe, Pennsylvania) and Jared Haught (197, Parkersburg, Virginia).

Five returning ACC champions from 2016 will be competing for their second straight titles in Dance, Jack, Ramos, Zavatsky and Virginia senior George DiCamillo (Highland Heights, Virginia) who is seeking to become the first Virginia and only the ninth ACC wrestler to win four ACC titles.

Nationally fourth-ranked Virginia Tech, the regular-season ACC champion, is the favorite to take team honors but will face a challenge from host NC State, the defending ACC Wrestling champion. The Wolfpack are ranked eighth nationally, while Pitt is ranked 23rd.

The Hokies will also be without long-time head coach Kevin Dresser and will be under the leadership of interim head coach Tony Robie. Only one team in the last eight years has won both the regular season championship and the overall championship in the same year (Virginia Tech, 2012).

Host NC State, coached by Pat Popolizio, will field two top-seeded wrestlers in the Championship in Jack and junior Michael Macchiavello at 184. The Wolfpack also has four wrestlers seeded second in the Championship in senior Sam Speno (149, Mount Kisco, New York), freshman Thomas Bullard (157, Lawrenceville, Georgia), Brian Hamann (165, Jackson, New Jersey) and Malik McDonald (197, Hope Mills, North Carolina).

Pitt, led by co-coaches Matt Kocher and Drew Headlee, has two top seeds in junior Dom Forys (133) and sophomore Te’Shan Campbell (165).  The Panthers also feature heavyweight Ryan Solomon, who is ranked 15th nationally and is 4-1 against ACC competition with a win over fifth-ranked Jacob Kasper of Duke.

Virginia, coached by Steve Garland, is led by senior DiCamillo, who is seeking to become only the ninth wrestler in ACC history to win four ACC individual titles. DiCamillo, who is the second seed at 141 pounds, previously won ACC titles at 133 pounds in 2013, 2015 and 2016. DiCamillo is one of three second seeds for the Cavaliers as freshman Jack Mueller (125, Dallas, Texas) and redshirt senior Will Mason (133, Virginia Beach, Virginia) are also seeded second in their weight classes. Mueller ranks second nationally in technical falls, having recorded 10 of his 22 (22-3) wins this year by technical fall.

North Carolina, coached by Coleman Scott, features a lineup led by Ward and Ramos. Both wrestlers are in two of the more competitive weight classes. Ward, who is ranked seventh nationally, will face Jack, ranked second nationally, and DiCamillo, ranked sixth. Ramos, ranked seventh nationally, will compete against Tech’s Epperly, who is ranked fourth.

Duke, coached by Glen Lanham, is led by redshirt junior Kasper (285, Lexington, Ohio), who is the No. 2 seed and at 285. Kasper, who is 26-2 overall on the year and is ranked fifth nationally, holds a win over the top heavyweight seed, Virginia Tech’s Walz.

Pittsboro, NC – Saturday’s ACC wrestling dual between North Carolina and Virginia was relocated to Northwood High School in Pittsboro due to the water emergency which affected the UNC campus.

Steve Kirschner, UNC’s Associate Athletic Director for Communications, noted that Northwood was already set up for a high school championship earlier in the day, so that is was logical for UNC wrestling to compete there in the evening.

Northwood Athletic Director Jason Amy led volunteers in hosting the meet.

Approximately 400 people filled the Northwood gym to watch the meet. The crowd consisted of family and fans of UNC wrestling, along with Northwood students and local Chatham county residents.

Carolina honored four of their seniors prior to the dual – Joey Ward, Joey Moon, Cody Karns and Michael Silk.

North Carolina and Virginia split 10 wrestling matches but the visiting Cavaliers got seven bonus points in the span of three bouts to surge to a 22-15 win. Carolina won four of the first five matches to build a 12-3 lead but saw it evaporate suddenly at the lightweight end of the lineup.

After the meet, the UNC wrestling team held a Senior Night dinner at the Carolina Brewery in Pittsboro.

Pittsboro, NC – North Carolina and Virginia split 10 wrestling matches but the visiting Cavaliers got seven bonus points in the span of three bouts to surge to a 22-15 win Saturday night at Northwood High School. Carolina won four of the first five matches to build a 12-3 lead but saw it evaporate suddenly at the lightweight end of the lineup.

Freshman Devin Kane gave the Tar Heels (6-6, 1-3 ACC) an early 3-0 advantage with a dominant 11-4 win over Ray Bethea at 165 pounds. No. 6 Ethan Ramos doubled the lead with an 8-4 decision over Garrett Peppelman at 174, but both Kane and Ramos missed opportunities in the late moments to push for majors.

Daniel Chaid and Cory Daniel were winners at 197 and 285 as the Tar Heels extended their overall lead to 12-3 before the Cavaliers (9-5, 1-2 ACC) started their comeback.

No. 7 Jack Mueller got the rally started at 125 with a 14-3 major over James Syzmanski. UVA took an unexpected lead when Nicholas Lirette had an injury default at 133 that handed the visitors a 13-12 lead. No. 7 George DiCamillo then added another stunner when he pinned No. 5 Joey Ward in the second period at 141.

The back-to-back six-pointers put Virginia in control, but Troy Heilmann got Carolina back in the win column with a 2-0 decision over Sam Krivus at 149.

With one match to go, senior Joey Moon needed a bonus-point win to force a tie in the overall score. Moon and No. 17 Andrew Atkinson were back and forth throughout a high-energy bout, but a late escape by Atkinson gave him the win and UVA the dual.

Carolina returns to the mat on Wednesday, Feb. 8, when the Tar Heels visit Duke at 7 p.m.
