After finishing 12-4-1 on the year, the MCC Champions and Regional Champions can add five All-Conference players, the Defensive Player of the Year, and Coach of the Year to the trophy cabinet.

Alex Aguilar was named conference Defensive Player of the Year and also earned First-Team All-Conference from the MCC.

His coach, Dave Burkle, was named the conference Coach of the Year for guiding the team to its second MCC title in a row and the regional championship.

Joining Aguilar on the First Team was Florentino Tellez and Victor Valenzuela as the trio was instrumental to the Lancers success all season long.
