2014-15 Western Carolina SAAC Monthly Awards:

Each month during the 2014-15 season, a player on an in-season squad that has had the best statistics and biggest impact on the team will be chosen by the SAAC Committee as the Male and Female Players of the Month. At the end of the year, those student-athletes which have been honored with a monthly award will be eligible for the SAAC Male and Female Student-Athlete of the Year award.

Also named each month, the "SAAC Spotlight Athlete" is presented to the male or female student-athlete that has excelled in athletics, academics, leadership and service in their community.
