Vizzuso receives N.J. accolades

Michelle Vizzuso, Virginia assistant field hockey coach and a New Jersey native, was named New Jersey's best field hockey player of the 20th century by the Newark Star-Ledger.

Vizzuso has been a member of the United States National Team since 1994 and was the youngest member of the 1998 USA National Field Hockey Senior team that competed in the FIH World Cup in Amsterdam. She won a silver medal at the Pan American Games as well.

In addition to holding the Virginia record for assists in a career (60) and in a season (25), she also holds records in New Jersey for goals in a season (69), goals in a career (145) and points in a career (348). Her jersey was retired by her high school, West Essex -- a team she led to three state championships and a state-record 65-game winning streak.

Virginia's Jessica Coleman and Meredith Elwell, both of whom are also from New Jersey, were also named to the state's field hockey team of the century by the Newark Star-Ledger.

ACC acknowledges game officiating error

ACC Commissioner John Swofford announced Monday in a press release that officiating crew errors occurred at the Clemson-N.C. State game played Oct. 9.

This decision comes after reviewing videotapes and interviewing officials and game administrators.

"Our review of the situation involving penalties during the Clemson-N.C. State game, leaves no doubt that the officials errored in their application during the course of the contest," Swofford said in the press release.

Each of the officials involved will serve a one-game suspension.
