Newbury senior Alex Chetelat was selected the NECC Player of the Year in a vote by the conference coaches. The senior first baseman hit .433 during conference play with 24 RBI and 20 runs scored. Twelve of his 26 hits were for extra bases the senior led the conference with four home runs and three triples. Chetelat also contributed on the mound pitching 26.2 innings posting a 4-0 mark, including two complete games, with a 1.01 ERA and 29 strikeout to just four walks.

Daniel Webster pitcher Kory Kiro was named NECC Pitcher of the Year. Kiro was 5-1 in NECC play this season, with three complete games, throwing 40.1 inning with a 2.68 ERA. Kiro posted 27 strikeouts with just 10 walks and allowed 12 earned runs on 43 hits as Daniel Webster finished atop the NECC regular season standings.

Daniel Webster third baseman Kyle Brigham was honored as the NECC Rookie of the Year. Brigham, who also earned first-team all-conference honors, hit .339 with 15 RBI and 17 runs scored for the Eagles.

Lesley's Mike Rocco was named NECC Coach of the Year by his peers. Rocco led the Lesley squad to four conference victories and an 8-26 mark in just the program's second year of varsity competition. Lesley was also awarded the NECC Team Sportsmanship Award.
