Virginia men's lacrosse player Steele Stanwick was named ACC Player of the Year for the second straight season. The senior attacker is the first Cavalier to earn the award multiple times and just the fourth in league history to win back-to-back seasons.

Stanwick leads the nation with 44 assists and is ranked third in points per game with 4.9. He became Virginia's all-time leader in career points after a two goal, five assist performance in the ACC semifinals last week. Stanwick is currently tied for No. 27 all-time in NCAA Division I lacrosse with 253 career points.

This is the first year awards were given separately for Defensive and Offensive Players of the Year. Duke's CJ Costabile and Maryland's Jesse Bernhardt were named Co-Defensive Players of the Year. Duke's John Danowski was tabbed as ACC Coach of the Year and Maryland's Goran Murray was named ACC Freshman of the Year.

Virginia wraps up their regular season Friday against Penn as part of the Whitman's Sampler Mile High Classic in Denver. The game will be streamed live on ESPN3 and face off is set for 7:30 p.m. EST.
