Clayton was named the Player of the Year, while Cullen was tabbed as Coach of the Year. Clayton is the fifth Catawba athlete in women's soccer to be selected as Player of the Year and the fourth in the past five years. Cullen is the third to earn Coach of the Year honors in women's soccer.Clayton was also named first team all-conference along with freshman Jessica Parker (Glendale, AZ). Named to the second team all-conference squad was sophomores Jamie Fink (Woodbridge, VA) and Danielle Mora (Glendale, AZ).
