Most of the time when a team wins a conference title to the victor go the spoils. But the Pasadena City College women's volleyball team garnered only one of the three major awards on the All-South Coast Conference North Division Team. Sophomore Pamela Galvan was named the SCC Libero of the Year.

Galvan was one of five Lancers selected All-SCC. Freshman outside hitter Leslie Rivera and first-year opposite Abby Martin joined Galvan as All-SCC First Team. Making the Second Team were sophomore outside hitter Camille Ferguson and frosh OH Janell Currier

Galvan averaged 4.2 digs per set and was one of the team's best servers with 42 aces. Her 360 digs total (in 86 sets) sets a new school record for one season, breaking the mark of 348 by Jennifer Estrada in 2012. Estrada was named MVP of the South Coast that year when PCC earned a Co-SCC championship with El Camino. In the eight conference-only matches, Galvan raised her level of play at 5.16 digs per set, including a season-best 32 digs v. Chaffey (matched that total also in a non-conference contest v. Riverside).

Rivera is the first Lancer since the digs statistic started to be kept officially in 1999 to average better than 3 kills and 3 digs per set. Her 55 aces is the third highest by a PCC player in a single season and she led the team in offensive points scoring at 363. With players averaging four attacks a set, she led the team in hitting percentage (.232) and was the team leader in kills with 295. 

Martin was second on the team in attack kills (215, 2.22 average per set) and third in total blocks (41) while playing in a team-high 97 sets (did not play only one set). Ferguson averaged 1.38 kills and 1.42 digs, while Currier averaged 1.5 kills and 1.84 digs.

PCC head coach Mike Terrill did not win SCC Coach of the Year honors as he did last season. Chaffey coach Brianna Gonzales-Harwell who coached the third-place Panthers won that award while Chaffey's Kendall Mency was the SCC North MVP.
