It’s time for the 2022 Black & Gold Banneret Awards!
Each year we pass out a bunch of awards honoring the best athletes, coaches, teams, and moments of the previous UCF Knights athletic year. Our staff votes, and so do you, the fans.
Here’s how it works: We, the staff, put together our nominees for each award. You can listen to our nominations podcast episode here. Over the next couple of weeks, we will open fan voting for each award. Each staff member gets one vote, and the winner of the fan vote will get one vote. If there is a tie, the fan vote will be the tiebreaker. We will announce the winners in two weeks.
Our 2022 Black & Gold Banneret Awards continue with Women’s Team of Year. Here are your nominees:
UCF had another historic season, finishing 27-7 overall and 19-1 in The American, the most AAC wins in program history, and winning a fourth-consecutive AAC conference title to get the automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament. The Knights advanced to the second round for the second time in the past three seasons after taking down Pepperdine, 3-1 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
UCF Women’s Basketball
UCF set the school record for most wins in a season with a 26-4 overall mark, including a 14-1 record in league play, on its way to winning the American Athletic Conference regular season and tournament championships. It was the first time UCF had won a regular season conference title since 2005. The Knights advanced to the NCAA tournament, where they chalked up the first NCAA Tournament win in program history beating Florida in the first round.
UCF Women’s Golf
UCF made the NCAA Tournament for the 3rd straight time and 8th in the last 11 seasons, finishing 11th in the Ann Arbor Regional.
The Knights secured seven top-five finishes on the season and won two tournaments in the Evie Odom Invitational (Oct. 3-5) and the Brickyard Collegiate (April 4-5).
UCF broke barriers in 2022, going 49-14 on the season winning the American Athletic Conference regular season and tournament titles for the first time since 2015, and earning the right to host a regional in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history as the No. 16 national seed. UCF would go on to win the Orlando Regional beating topping Michigan to advance to the super regional for the first time in program history.

The program also sent athletes to both the Indoor and Outdoor NCAA Championships.
