Gilbert totaled 138 kills and a career-high 211 digs for WPI.  The senior right side also added 24 service aces and 26 total blocks.  Gilbert reached double figures in kills three times in 2019, including back-to-back performances versus in victories over Gordon (12) and Southern Maine (11) in early September. 

Mullins was second on the Engineers in both kills (200) and digs (223).  The senior outside hitter opened the season hitting .480% with 14 kills in a victory over Worcester State and also reached 14 kills with a career-high tying 15 digs in a dramatic 3-2 triumph over Eastern Connecticut in late October.
