Paige Moriarty (Glen Ridge, N.J. / Glen Ridge) became just the third Diplomat to receive Offensive Player of the Year honors, and the third overall to win the award twice after also earning it in 2016.

She leads the Conference with 168 saves and has a 53.2 save percentage in net. The senior anchored the second-best defense in the CC with an 8.02 goals-against average and has five or more saves in 17 games, including a career-high 19 against Gettysburg on April 4.
Anya Chopoorian (Boonton Township, N.J. / Mountain Lakes) leads the Diplomats with 71 draws this season. The first-year defender has collected 26 ground balls and forced 19 turnovers while helping to anchor a defense that gave up just 12 goals per game.
Jane Cote (Manlius, N.Y. / Fayetteville-Manlius) was second in the CC with 42 assists and added 15 goals this season. A first-year attacker, Cote played in 20 games and has multiple points in 14 contests.
