She was named the District B Region III Tournament Most Valuable Player and propelled the Cougars to their fourth appearance at the NJCAA Women's Soccer D-III Nationals. Her efforts also resulted in her being named this week's NJCAA Region III Female Athlete of the Week.
Hall scored both game-winners in both Cougar playoff games that led to a Region III District A Championship. He was selected to the District A Region 3 All-Tournament team and was also named Western New York Athletic Conference Men's Soccer D-III MVP. Hall's efforts also earned him the NJCAA D-III Men's Soccer Player of the Week Award.
