O'Neil), junior midfielder Allison Furman (Gilbertsville, Pa./Boyertown) and senior defender Cindy Taylor (Schwenksville, Pa./Boyertown) were named second-team all-conference, while senior goalkeeper Alex McBride (Sewell, N.J./Washington Township) was named honorable mention.

In addition to the players, head coach Erin Stroble was named as Centennial Conference Coach of the Year.
