Walker's 49 points ranked 12th in the NWC. She totaled 37 goals and 12 assists, both of which ranked behind Jenna Kisner for the Loggers. NWC coaches elected to not reward Kisner with an All-NWC honor.

Walker totaled 10 multi-goal games during the season, including a season-high six goals in a win against Marian (Wis.). During that Marian game, Walker scored three consecutive goals in the final five minutes of regulation to send the game into overtime.

Burke led a Puget Sound defense that allowed only 166 goals during the season, which is the third-fewest goals allowed in the NWC. Like Walker, Burke started all 15 games for the Loggers.

The Loggers concluded the 2019 season with the program's first winning record (8-7) since the 2015 campaign.
