The Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference recognizes athletic excellence through its All-Conference Awards. The All-Conference selections recognize outstanding participation and performance in conference play. Nominations and votes are submitted by the head coach of each team in the conference.

Snow was the only Sagehen to be named to the Sportsmanship Team. The SCIAC recognizes student-athletes from each varsity sport who have demonstrated outstanding sportsmanship in their respective sport. These student-athletes exhibit respect for themselves, teammates, coaches, opponents and spectators. Through positive action and leadership, these student-athletes inspire others to adhere to the quality of sportsmanship the SCIAC and the NCAA endorse.

Snow tallied eight goals this season, six of which against SCIAC schools, as a defender and the only senior on a young Pomona-Pitzer squad. Snow was a SCIAC All-Academic selection a year ago and also earned ACWPC All-Academic.
