WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - Katie Stengel and Aubrey Bledsoe were named to the 2012 All-ACC Women's Soccer Team, as announced by the conference Thursday.

Both juniors, Stengel was named to the All-ACC first team for the third time, and Bledsoe made the second team, giving her All-ACC honors for the second year in a row. Stengel is one of only four three-time All-ACC players in program history and is the only one to earn first team honors three times.

Wake Forest's all-time scoring leader, Stengel leads the Demon Deacons with seven goals and 17 points in 12 games this season. She missed the first eight games of the season while competing as a member of the U.S. team that won the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Japan.

Bledsoe has recorded seven shutouts this season, tied for third-best in the conference, and holds a 0.78 goals against average. She ranks first in the Wake Forest record books with 24 career shutouts.

Wake Forest finished in a tie for second place in the ACC this season and earned the No. 3 seed in the 2012 ACC Championship, defeating Duke in the quarterfinals last Sunday. The Demon Deacons will take on second-seeded Maryland in the semifinals Friday at 7:30 p.m. at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C. The match will be broadcast on ESPN3.
