WILMINGTON, North Carolina – UNCW freshman standout Jenson Engen has been named Colonial Athletic Association women’s swimming Rookie-of-the-Year by a vote of the league’s coaches.

Engen becomes the second Seahawk to win the award and Hannah Stephenson collected the honor last season.

The conference also announced its official All-CAA honorees with UNCW collecting 30 all-conference awards. Joe Gallene, C.J. Fiala, Valtteri Halonen and Nick Lowe each earned five all-conference awards apiece on the men’s side and Carly Tanner with five of her own to top the Seahawk women.

Engen, who hails from Verona, Wisc., held UNCW’s top time in the 100 Breast stroke with mark of 1:01.54 and was second on the top times list in the 200 Breast (2:15.80).

At the CAA Championships, Engen placed fifth in both the 100 and 200 Breast strokes with times of 1:02.81 and 2:15.80, respectively. Her time in the 200 was a NCAA “B” qualifier and broke UNCW’s school record by two seconds.

Engen earned All-CAA honors swimming on UNCW’s third-place 200 Medley Relay.
