GREENSBORO, NC – Three members of the Clemson women’s soccer team were named to the 2008 All-ACC Academic Women’s Soccer Team as announced by Commissioner John D. Swofford on Wednesday afternoon. Seniors Julie Bolt and Molly Johnson each earned the academic honor for the third time in their four-year careers, while junior Lindsey Jackson was named to the team for the first time for the Tigers.

Jackson, a junior defender, started all 17 games for the Tigers in 2008. The Raleigh, NC native scored two goals and tallied two assists on the season. The health science major is a first-time All-ACC Academic Team member and has been named to the ACC Academic Honor Roll twice, in 2006 and 2007.

Johnson, a senior and native of Stuart, FL, was a mainstay on the Tiger defense, starting all 82 games of her four-year career on the Clemson back line.
