Farra led the Tigers with 14 goals overall and seven game-winning scores. She was also the team leader with 35 points on the year, adding seven assists. Farra was elected to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-America Third Team, and was also named the SCAC Offensive Player of the Year.
Camp finished second on the Trinity squad with 32 points, scoring 12 goals and eight assists. She accounted for two game-winners this season as well.
Kelly fired in eight goals and four game-winners. She made three assists, and finished up with 19 points. Kelly was also a key member of Trinity's defense, which posted 16 shutouts in 24 games, and allowed just eight goals overall.
