Dulce Resendiz had numerous defensive helpers and a few offensive asssists on the year and Avery Mertz was fifth in NJCAA Region IV with 94 saves on the season. Coach Ludwig on the Kishwaukee College Women's team very first year in college history - "Although we would have loved to be in the playoffs in our first year as a program, we showed tremendous growth and character throughout the season, which has set a solid foundation on which the program can grow. Several of our games could have easily gone the other way in terms of winning results. We are eager to compete for a regional playoff spot next year. There's hard work ahead but I know the returning student-athletes will be putting in the time to get better towards that goal!"
