"I'm extremely excited that four of our players have been recognized as some of the best in the Mid-Atlantic region," Coach Paul Cairney said. "To have that many selections to the All-Region teams speaks highly of the success our team had this season and the effort everyone put in. This was a historic season and having a school-record four players named to the All-Region teams just adds to the legacy this year's team has left on the program." A First-Team All-Colonial Athletic Association selection, McCormick joins Stephanie Rose as one of just two players in school history to earn First-Team All-Region status. She started all 23 games and finished the season tied for the CAA lead with 14 goals and 34 points.

The Jacksonville, N.C., product earned First-Team All-Colonial Athletic Association and All-State honors after playing in all but 37 minutes as a senior. During her career, Leyble started 74-of-80 games while scoring 8 goals with 10 assists.
Guillou, who earned All-Region status for the second time in her career, ranked second on the Seahawks with 11 goals and five assists. The Fort Washington, Md., native received Second-Team All-CAA distinction for the second year in a row and posted a pair of multi-goal games against Delaware and Northeastern. Guillou finished her career as the fifth-leading scorer in school history with 30 goals and 74 points while starting 60-of-80 games.

Guillou, who becomes the first two-time All-Region honoree, was selected to the All-Mid-Atlantic Region Third Team as a sophomore in 2013.
