Ngoh made 17 appearances, making 13 starts at his defensive wing position. His four assists led the Tigers, and he found the back of the net three times. In a 6-0 victory over Mary Baldwin, Ngoh scored two goals in four minutes, equaling the most goals scored by a Tiger during the 2022 season.

Johnston earns All-ODAC honors in his first season on campus, from his spot in the midfield and up top. Along with his All-ODAC honors, he was named Player of the Week in the ODAC during the third week of the season. He made 15 appearances for the Tigers making nine starts, after earning his way into the lineup with his performances early in the season. Johnston led the Tigers in both goals with six, and points with 13 while adding an assist to his stat line.
