Karly Morris of Aquinas was named Libero of the Year with 789 digs in 132 sets, ranking her fourth in the NAIA. Kristi Doherty of Lawrence Tech received Setter of the Year with 1,146 assists for 9.2 per set. Newcomer of the Year went to Devon Heitkamp of UNOH with 539 kills, 39 digs, and 68 total blocks.

Aquinas head coach Rick Schoreder was voted as Coach of the Year and Danielle Cook of Concordia was selected as Champions of Character Coach.

In addition to All-Conference, the WHAC also announced its All-Academic Team (juniors or above in academic standing with cumulative GPA of at least 3.25), Champions of Character Team (best represents the five core character values of integrity, respect, responsibility, sportsmanship, and servant leadership) and All-Freshman Team.
