RICHMOND, Virginia – UNCW junior forward Serenity Waters and freshman midfielder Brittany Matsingerhave been recognized by the Colonial Athletic Association for their efforts last week as the Seahawks clinched a berth in the CAA Championships.

Waters earned the first CAA Co-Player-of-the-Week honor of her career while Matsinger was selected as the league's Rookie-of-the-Week for the first time.

"This is a great honor for our team and I know Serenity and Brittany share this with their teammates," UNCW Head Coach Paul Cairney said. "Based on the adversity we have faced this season, we have needed several players to step up at different times throughout the season.

"Serenity is a confident player and when she is in form, she is quite hard to stop," Cairney added. "Brittany has come on stronger as of late. She gives us key minutes and helps control the flow of the game."

In leading the Seahawks to a pair of wins over William & Mary and Elon, Waters scored three goals to help the Seahawks advance to the postseason. The Sharpsburg, Ga., native scored the eventual game-winning goal in the Seahawks' 2-0 triumph over the Tribe before registering both goals in Sunday's overtime victory against the Phoenix.

The fourth-leading scorer in the CAA with 25 points, Waters has scored nine goals, including five game-winning markers, with seven assists. She shared the weekly award with Northeastern junior forwardHannah Rosenblatt.

Matsinger earned her first collegiate point in the Seahawks' comeback win over Elon, recording an assist on the game-winning goal. The Cary, N.C., product has appeared in 12 games this season while starting six times, including four of the last five games.

UNCW, which earned the No. 4 seed in the CAA Championship, opens the postseason by hosting William & Mary in a quarterfinal game on Sunday, Oct. 30, at 2 p.m.
