In addition to the team success this season, McGlone earned the Defensive Player of the Year Award in the Landmark Conference as well as a repeat first team honoree. In her first season, she was named as the Conference's Rookie of the Year, including a first team selection.

McGlone then earned a spot on the 2009 Longstreth/NFHCA Division III All South Atlantic Region First Team before being voted as an All American.

Messiah College's Julie Barton was named as the 2009 Division III National Player of the Year as she helped her Falcons to a Runner-up finish in 2009.

Salisbury University claimed the ultimate prize with a 1-0 victory over Messiah in the Championship game. It was the fifth title for the Seagulls field hockey program.
