RICHMOND, Va. -- The University of Delaware women’s soccer squad, which opens its season this Sunday at home against Georgetown, has placed three players on the Colonial Athletic Association Pre-Season All-CAA team announced by the league office.
Leading the way for the Blue Hens was senior forward Ali Miller (at right), who was one of 13 players selected to the first team. In addition, senior midfielder Tania Domingos and junior midfielder Chelsea Duffy were honorable mention selections.
A total of 20 players overall were selected by the league head coaches on the first team and honorable mention squad. William & Mary senior midfielder Mallory Schaffer was selected as the pre-season CAA Player of the Year.
