Additionally, junior Nicole Enabosi was picked as a Preseason All-CAA First Team selection.

James Madison was picked to win it all in 2017 with 78 points and six first place votes according to a vote of the league’s 10 head coaches. Behind the Dukes were defending champion Elon (74; 3) and William & Mary (58) while Drexel was fourth with 51 points and one first place vote. The Blue Hens garnered 48 points while Northeastern was sixth with 47 and Hofstra was seventh with 43.

UD returns three starters and eight letter winners from last season while adding three newcomers for the upcoming year.
