Syracuse field hockey members Charlotte de Vries and Laura Graziosi have been named preseason all-Atlantic Coast Conference selections for the 2020 season. The Orange will begin the year as one of three schools with at least two all-ACC players on their roster.
de Vries, a sophomore, was named a NFHCA second-team All-American following a freshman season in which she led SU in both goals (15) and points (31). Graziosi, a junior, tallied nine points on three goals and three assists while starting all 18 games of her sophomore season.
SU returns its entire starting midfield (Graziosi, Carolin Hoffmann, Claire Cooke and Tess Queen) from last season.
The Orange were picked to finish sixth out of seven in conference play. The ACC is the only conference in the country to go through with a field hockey season.
Syracuse begins its 10-game season against Duke on Sept. 18. The Blue Devils were picked to finish fourth in the conference and feature one all-conference selection.
