Peters, who earlier this year was selected to the Google Cloud Academic All-America® Division III Volleyball Team and named an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship recipient, was an American Volleyball Coaches Association Third Team All-America selection in her senior season. The 2018 North Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Year and two-time all-NCAC first team choice helped the Tigers to an 18-11 overall record, a second-place finish in the NCAC and the program's fifth NCAA postseason appearance in the last six years. Peters finished her career with 1,438 kills which ranks fifth in school history. Her 443 kills this season were the 10th highest single-season total in school history.
Peters graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree and majored in kinesiology. She earned Phi Beta Kappa honors, was inducted into Chi Alpha Sigma National College Athlete Honor Society, served on the Order of Omega executive board and was a member of the Kinesiology Honors Society.
Luloff was named the Ping Women's Golf Coaches Association Division III Golfer of the Year and a first team all-America choice. She finished in a tie for fourth at the 2019 NCAA Division III Championships after leading the Tigers to a fifth-place team finish at the national tournament. Luloff led the Tigers in scoring average all four seasons including a school-record 74.28 this season. In 95 career rounds, Luloff set a DePauw record with a 77.35 scoring average. She won six tournaments this year and finished in the top six of all 12 tournaments in which she competed. Luloff was the medalist at the 2019 North Coast Athletic Conference Championships and named the NCAC Golfer of the Year. She also was a second team all-America selection as a junior and honorable mention following her sophomore season.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree and majored in history. Luloff served on DePauw's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and volunteered at Asbury Towers Retirement Community throughout her four years.
