Mike LaValley led the way as the league's Football Defensive Player of the Week. In St. Scholastica's 41-13 win on Saturday, LaValley returned two interceptions for touchdowns, the first player in program history to do so.

Chelsea Johnson was named the Women's Cross Country Athlete of the Week after being named the Division III National Women's Athlete of the Week on Monday. Johnson won the University of Minnesota Roy Griak Invitational on Saturday. It was her third meet win of the season.
