WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

For the second straight week, UNCW freshman Molly McGarry has has been named Colonial Athletic Association Women's Soccer Rookie of the Week.

The Charlotte, N.C., product scored both of the Seahawks' goals in a 2-1 victory over Campbell on Sunday.

McGarry gave UNCW a 1-0 lead just one minute into the game when she headed in a corner kick from senior forward Serenity Waters. She made it 2-0 in the closing minutes of the first half by heading in another corner kick, this time from sophomore forward Olivia Szeker-Cortes.

"Molly is continuing to find her 90-minute rhythm and she adds an attacking dimension to our midfield," Seahawk coach Paul Cairney said. "She was able to score those goals after receiving great services from Serenity and Olivia on the two corner kicks. I know Molly shares this award with her teammates."

McGarry leads the Seahawks' with four goals this season.
