1996 Team Awards

Senior goalkeeper Genie Huntemann, who opened the season with four shutouts and blanked six of Whitman's first eight opponents, was presented with team MVP honors at a season-ending banquet. The MVP honor, which Huntemann also received last season, was one of several awards determined by a vote of the players.

Senior forward Carole Skeeters, who led a balanced Whitman attack with 13 points, received the Best Offensive Player award. Junior Erin Lawson was named Best Defensive Player, while junior Sara Sakamoto received the Most Inspirational award. Senior defender Molly Willis earned the Team Player award for the second time in three seasons. First-year player Laura Santa was recognized with the Most Improved award. Coach Scott Shields gave his Coaches Award to sophomore midfielder Kristen Ott.
