The Jimmies had bright spots throughout the pitch leading to one player being named to the GPAC all-conference second team and two others selected as honorable mention selections.

The Jimmies' sole representative on the all-conference second team was senior forward Aaron Pike, who appeared in 17 of the Jimmies 18 games, starting in all of them. Pike finished the year as the Jimmies' second-leading goal scorer with seven goals, a team leading five assists, and 19 points. This is the second year in a row that Pike has found himself on the GPAC all-conference second team. He was also named a GPAC all-conference honorable mention in his sophomore season in 2019.

The progression that Pike said he has seen over his time playing for the Jimmies is exciting to his potential future prospects in the game.

"It feels good to be going in the right direction, as after graduating, I'm looking to continue playing," Pike said.

The two players that were honorable mention selections for the Jimmies are senior forward Diego Valle and senior defender Max Gross. This is the second consecutive season that Gross and Valle were named to GPAC honorable mentions.
