Sophomore Tereza Brichacova was voted the team's Most Valuable Athlete. A native of Prague, Czech Republic, Brichacova played at the No. 2 singles position for an overall record of 16-19 on the season. She led the team in Big Ten Conference action with a 5-6 mark. On the doubles side, Brichacova played to a 17-16 season finish, including a 2-2 record when partnering with Doron Muravnik.

Brichacova also picked up a part of the Most Improved Player award, sharing the honor with freshman Jessika Mozia. Mozia, who hails from Littleton, Colo., led the team in overall victories after posting a 22-18 season on the court. Mozia saw action at multiple positions throughout the year, playing as high as second singles. She also marked a 16-16 record in doubles play, 3-5 coming from No. 3 doubles during the conference schedule.

Freshman Paula Rincon Otero received the Coaches' Award, presented to the student-athlete who exhibits a positive attitude and a dedicated work ethic. Rincon Otero posted a 13-17 singles mark in her first season with the Maroon and Gold and played for a 10-16 total in doubles.

Freshman Kelsey Frechette won the Belmar Gunderson award, which is given out by the coaching staff and is presented to the student athlete who consistently finds a way to persevere in the midst of adverse conditions and unfavorable odds.
