UNCW sophomore forward Katrina Guillou was named Co-Player of the Week by the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) on Monday.
Guillou, who shared the honor with Drexel’s Lauren Stollar, became the second Seahawk player to earn the award this season. Sophomore Maddy McCormick garnered Player of the Week accolades on Sept. 16.
A native of Ft. Washington, Md., Guillou scored two goals and assisted on the third in UNCW’s 3-1 victory over Delaware on Sunday that earned the Seahawks a berth in the CAA Tournament.
Entering postseason play, the sophomore leads UNCW with 10 goals, six assists and 26 points. She has tallied at least one point in 11 of the Seahawks’ last 14 contests.
No. 5 seed UNCW (9-9) opens the 2013 CAA Women’s Soccer Championship Nov. 3 with a first-round contest at No. 4 seed Hofstra.
On the men’s side, UNCW freshman goalkeeper Sean Melvin was named CAA Rookie of the Week and junior defender Jacob VanCompernolle earned a spot on CollegeSoccerNews.com’s Team of the Week following an impressive week for the Seahawks.
The Seahawks ran their record to 8-5-1 overall and 3-2-0 in the league with road wins at 11th-ranked UNC Chapel Hill (1-0) and Delaware (2-1) last week. Both teams were in the NCAA’s top-25 in the RPI.
Melvin earned the win in both games for the Seahawks and finished with four saves, while allowing one goal. VanCompernolle was another vital cog in the Seahawk defense last week, one that limited the nation’s top offense in Delaware to just two shots on goal. VanCompernolle, who is one of two Seahawks to start every game this season, recorded his third assist of the season in the UD game, setting a career high.
The Seahawks moved into a tie along with William & Mary for third in the CAA with nine points and host the Tribe on Nov. 2 at 7 p.m.
