WILMINGTON, N.C. – Senior striker Sam Leger and junior midfielder Chris Murray were named second-team All-Colonial Athletic Association Thursday at the conference Awards Banquet in Norfolk. Freshman Tim Masters was named to the all-rookie squad.
Leger, the team’s leading scorer, set career highs this season with 10 goals and 22 points to pace the conference’s leading offense. The Arvada, Colo. Product has notched a pair of game-winning goals and ranks among UNCW’s all-time leaders in goals and games played.

Masters, a rookie from Charlotte, N.C., is fifth on the squad with 10 points on four goals and two assists.
