UNCW’s Waters earns preseason All-CAA honors

RICHMOND, Virginia – UNCW senior forward Serenity Waters has been named as an Honorable Mention selection on the 2017 Preseason All-Colonial Athletic Association Women's Soccer Team in a vote of the league's head coaches. 

In addition, the Seahawks were picked to finish sixth in the league's Predicted Order of Finish.

A Second-Team All-CAA selection last year, Waters was the Seahawks' leading scorer with nine goals and seven assists. The Sharpsburg, Ga., product ranked fourth in the CAA with 25 points and was tied for third in the league with five game-winning goals. 

Waters earned CAA Player-of-the-Week notice after guiding UNCW to a pair of wins over Elon and William & Mary, scoring three goals in the two victories. 
A three-year letter winner for the Seahawks, Waters has tallied 17 goals with 8 assists in her career. 

Northeastern was the unanimous pick to repeat as the CAA champion while William & Mary was selected to finish second.
