NC State's Matt Ingram and Fabian Otte earned spots on the All-ACC Academic Team, announced Friday by the conference.
The Wolfpack's starting keeper in 17 of 20 games, Otte tallied 54 saves and three shutouts in a year that saw NC State climb as high as No. 14 in the national rankings. That ranking came on the heels of a 6-0 start, the best for the program since 1982. Otte carried a 1.41 GAA for the year and a .692 save percentage after allowing just 24 goals in 1,528 minutes.
Ingram started all 20 games at defender, contributing two assists on the year. The sophomore anchored a Wolfpack defense that limited opponents to 1.35 goals per game and tallied five shutouts while playing in arguably the toughest conference in the nation.
To be eligible for All-ACC Academic Team consideration, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career.
