A Second Team honoree in 2013 and Third Team selection in 2014, Delgado earned Third Team praises once again this season.

“Being a three-time All-American puts Guillermo in a special category,” Delaware head coach Ian Hennessy commented. “Our program began in 1926 and he is our first triple All-American. This is an amazing feat and achievement that puts Guillermo in the UD pantheon of fame with the greatest of all of our athletes across any sport.”

Earlier this week, Delgado picked up NSCAA All-Midwest Region First Team honors for third time in his career.

The forward completed his junior campaign with a team-best 24 points and 10 goals. Delgado led the Colonial Athletic Association with 1.20 points per game, 0.50 goals per contest and four game-winning goals. He is currently second in program history with 85 career points (37g, 11a) while his 37 goals are also good for second all-time.
