UNCW Press Release:

WILMINGTON, North Carolina – UNCW women's soccer freshman Serenity Waters exploded for a hat track in the first half of Saturday's 8-0 romp over Francis Marion, earning the newcomer from Sharpsburg, Ga., Colonial Athletic Association's Rookie-of-the-Week accolades.

Waters, a midfielder, entered the game with one goal in five starts this season, but shocked the Patriots with her three-goal outburst early in Saturday's victory.

"It's exciting for any player to score a hat trick and I'm happy for Serenity," said veteran UNCW Head Coach Paul Cairney. "When goals are scored in our game, it's always the product of the whole team. One player gets the credit, of course, and I'm sure Serenity shares this accolade with our whole team."

Waters is tied for second on the team with eight points on four goals and will try to add to that tonight when the Seahawks take on Coastal Carolina in the finale of the Hilton Garden Inn Mayfaire Invitational at the UNCW Soccer Stadium. Kick off is set for 7 p.m.
