The First Team All-WHAC selection always seemed to be in the right spot for a big play, coming up with a team-best three game-winners and converted on his only penalty kick of the season.

Gaye finished his career at Tech playing in 53 matches with 21 goals, including seven game-winners, and 11 assists.

Richardson also shined in his second season with the Warriors. The Honorable Mention All-Conference goalkeeper posted seven shutouts with 93 saves while his 0.94 goals against average ranked second in the conference. His tremendous play in net anchored a Tech defense that allowed just 1.00 goals per game, which tied for the league lead.
