Fellow senior midfielder Smith earned a 3.54 in recreation and leisure studies. A Second Team All-CAA Selection, Smith ranked second in the country in draw controls averaging 4.67 per game. Smith was second on the squad in ground balls with 37 and was tied along with Hensil with a team second best 15 caused turnovers.

Jefferys, a member of the Lady Monarch defense majoring in nursing, earned a 3.54 grade point average in the classroom as well. Jefferys appeared in all 16 games in 2003, recording 16 groundballs, nine caused turnovers, and eight draw controls. Her defensive efforts helped the Lady Monarchs keep four opponents to single digits scoring, including an opponent low of five goals at Temple in late March.
