Barry led the Muskingum defense in total tackles and ranked second in the Ohio Athletic Conference in tackles averaging 12.3 stops per game. He was also tied for first in the league in fumble recoveries with one. Barry was named the Muskie Defensive Player of the Game in two of Muskingum’s three contests.
Dickey led the Muskies with three goals, while anchoring the backline. She peppered 20 shots and registered one game-winning strike. Dickey helped lead the Muskies to a first-place finish at the Scarlet Hawk Classic in Chicago with a 1-0-1 mark. Following the tournament, Dickey was named to the all-tournament team.
SAAC Muskies of the Month nominees are nominated by Muskingum coaches and voted on by SAAC representatives from Muskingum's 21 varsity sports.
