GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Lindsay Preston, Maddie Huster, Bayley Feist were named to All-ACC teams and Vicky Krug was named to the ACC All-Freshman Team as the conference announced its yearly women's soccer awards on Thursday.

Preston and Huster were both named to the All-ACC Second Team while Feist earned a spot on the All-ACC Third Team. Krug was named to the ACC All-Freshman team. All four Deacons are earning a spot on their respective all-conference teams for the first time in their careers.

The four Demon Deacons honored by the conference are the most in one season since 2013 when Aubrey Bledsoe, Riley Ridgik and Katie Stengel earned All-ACC honors with Sarah Teegarden earning a spot on the ACC All-Freshman squad.

Preston, a senior from Oviedo, Florida, has had her best season in goal as a Deacon. This year, Preston has a career-best 0.74 goals against average, a mark good for fourth in the conference, and a career-best .800 save percentage, also good for fourth in the ACC.

A senior from Cincinnati, Ohio, Huster has started all 19 games this season and has clocked nearly 1,700 minutes of playing time at midfield. Huster has four goals and two assists this season for 10 points, which is good for third on the team.

Feist, a junior from Cincinnati, Ohio, is having a break-out year, recording a career-high and team-leading eight goals this season. Feist also has two assists, giving her 18 points, the most points by an individual Deacon since 2013.

A native of Germany, Krug has been essential to the Deacon defense that has recorded 10 shutouts this season. Krug has started all 19 games and has earned five points on one goal and three assists.

Duke's Imani Dorsey was named the Offensive Player of the Year while the Blue Devil's Rebecca Quinn and Schuyler DeBree were named Midfielder and Defensive Player of the Year. Louisville's Emina Ekic and North Carolina's Alessia Russo were named Co-Freshmnn of the Year while Duke's head coach Robbie Church earned Coach of the Year honors.
