HARRISONBURG, Virginia – Led by First-Team All-CAA selections junior Stephanie Bronson and sophomore Katrina Guillou, a total of six players were recognized as the Colonial Athletic Association handed out its annual awards Thursday evening during the league’s championship banquet.

Joining Bronson and Guillou on the all-conference teams were sophomores Morgan Leyble and Maddie McCormick, who garnered Second and Third Team All-CAA accolades, respectively. Freshman keeper Carolyn Huddy was named to the CAA All-Rookie Team and senior Natalie Winslow was recognized for her work in the classroom as she was selected to the league’s All-Academic Team.

“It is an honor for six of our players to be recognized in this league,” said UNCW Head Coach Paul Cairney. “There is an incredible depth of talent in the CAA and there is not much separating the first, second and third teams. As with any individual award, our whole team shares these honors with Katrina, Stephanie, Morgan, Maddie, Carolyn & Natalie.”

A Third-Team All-CAA pick a season ago, Bronson earned First-Team honors in 2013 as she ranked third on the team in scoring with 12 points on five goals and two assists. The Raleigh, N.C., product took part in all 19 games for the Seahawks this season and was third on the team with 37 shot attempts. She scored the game-winning goal in the Seahawks’ 3-2 victory at East Carolina in September.

A native of Ft. Washington, Md., Guillou earned First-Team All-CAA accolades after enjoying a breakout sophomore season that saw her post team highs in goals (10), assists (6) and points (26) to rank among the top five players in the CAA in all three categories. Guillou took part in all 19 games for the Seahawks and finished the season on an offensive tear with points in 11 of the team’s final 15 games.

One of only three players to start all 19 games for UNCW this season, Leyble provided scoring depth as she tallied six points (1 G, 4 A) from the centre back position. A native of Jacksonville, N.C., Leyble also played a key role in the team’s defensive efforts, helping the squad post three shutouts.

McCormick was recognized as a Third-Team All-CAA honoree for the second consecutive season after ranking second on the team in goals (6), assists (4) and points (16). The Newark, Del., product authored the game-winning goal on two occasions; providing the decisive tally in victories against Longwood and Delaware.

A native of Charlotte, N.C., Huddy earned All-Rookie Team honors following a freshman campaign that saw her play a total of 12 games in goal for the Seahawks and fashioning a 1.28 goals against average, a .806 save percentage and 50 saves.  Pressed into full-time duty after the injury to fellow rookie keeper Lissa Rahkola, Huddy rose the challenge, posting a 1.01 goals against average, a .840 save percentage and two shutouts over the final seven games of the season.

Winslow was named to the All-Academic Team for her work in the classroom as the Wilson, N.C., product is a four-time Dean’s List honoree with a 3.59 cumulative GPA. ON track to graduate with a degree in Elementary Education in the spring, Winslow started all 19 games for the Seahawks this season and contributed two assists from her right back position.

“It is exciting that five of our honorees will be back next season,” Cairney said. “With one junior, three sophomores and one freshman being All-CAA simply demonstrates the youth that our 2013 squad had and it bodes well for a championship run in 2014. I am also very happy for Natalie to be finally recognized for her athletic and academic achievements at UNCW.”
