Zoller earned a spot on the 11-player first team while senior Connor Weinzirl was named to the second team and sophomore Owen Wise and junior Gage Espanet earned honorable mention.

Kolton Prater of 2018 BRC champion Hudson and goalkeeper Tyler Hanson of Eau Claire Memorial were named the conference co-players of the year.
