WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Led by a trio of First-Team selections, a total of four members of the UNCW women’s soccer program were named to the 2012-13 NCCSIA University Division Women's Soccer All-State Team on Wednesday.

Graduated seniors Kim Currie, Caitlin Hunter and Stephanie Rose all earned First-Team distinction while rising junior Stephanie Bronson was recognized as a Second-Team selection.

“We are happy to hear that four players from our 2012 squad have received All-State distinction,” said UNCW Head Coach Paul Cairney. “The state of North Carolina has some of the top collegiate programs in the nation, so to be recognized among the top players in the state is truly a tremendous accomplishment. As with any individual award, however, the entire program shares in these honors.”

The most improved team in the nation in 2012, the Seahawks posted a 12-7-3 overall record as they advanced to the finals of the CAA Women’s Soccer Championship for the second time in four seasons.
