The Syracuse Orange field hockey team finished the 2015 regular season 16-0 and No. 1 in the nation. So it stands to reason that they were probably going to pick up a few postseason ACC awards while they were at it.
They basically picked up all of them.
ACC Offensive Player of the Year: Senior midfielder Alma Fenne, who co-led the team with 33 points and 13 goals.
ACC Defensive Player of the Year: Senior midfielder Alyssa Manley, who led a defensive effort that only allowed 13 goals in 16 games.
ACC Rookie of the Year: Freshman Roos Weers, who tied Fenne for the team lead with 33 points and 13 goals.
ACC Coach of the Year: Head coach Ange Bradley, who also won Big East Coach of the Year three times.
Manley, Fenne and Weers were also named to the All-ACC First Team while senior forward Emma Russell, sophomore midfielder Laura Hurff and senior goaltender Jess Jecko were all named All-ACC Second Team.

That's all well and good but now it's time to win the ACC Tournament. Play begins on Thursday and Syracuse awaits the winner of No. 4 Duke taking on No. 5 Virginia. The 1-seed Orange will take on whoever wins on Friday at 1 p.m. The game will be televised on the ACC RSN as well as ESPN3.
