The Fawcett Award was given to senior men's track & field and basketball Anthony Thomas (New Castle, PA / Union) and the Walker Award was presented to senior women's track & field Haley Gabor (New Kensington, PA / Ford City).

Thomas, a four-year letterman in basketball and track & field, was a four-year starter and three-time All-Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) Honorable Mention in basketball where he scored his 1,326 career point (14th all-time) this past season.

The WESPY award, given for the top single-event athletic performance by a Titan male and female student-athlete, was voted on by the entire campus community via e-mail ballot.

The men's WESPY went to junior swimmer Steven Brooks (Boardman, OH / Boardman). At the PAC championship meet, Brooks was the overall high point scorer to win the Meet MVP, the PAC Swimmer of the Year award, and was All-PAC 1st Team.  He won seven gold medals (four individual and three relay) at the meet and set new school records in both the 100 and 200 backstroke events.  He also qualified in two events for the NCAA D-III National Championship Meet.

For the second-straight year, the women's WESPY went to track and field sophomore Marissa Kalsey (Waynesburg, PA / Waynesburg).
