Winners of US Quidditch Regional Individual Awards Announced

After US Quidditch ended the 2019–2020 season, it opened voting for Regional Individual Awards. The voting happened from May 15 until May 22, and the winners were announced this week.

There were 16 categories, part of them only for college teams and part of them only for Muggle quidditch clubs. College awards included College MVP, College Rookie of the Year, College Chasers, College Beaters, College Keepers, and College Seeker. Quidditch Club Awards included Club MVP, Club Rookie of the Year, Club Chaser, Club Beater, Club Keeper, and Club Seeker. Other awards were Spirit Award, Best Coach, Best Manager, and Best Snitch Runner.


Chaser in green jersey is trying to tackle another chaser in white jersey, but beater in white jersey is beating him with bludger.


There were eight regions where these 16 awards were given, excluding the Northwest Region, where college awards weren’t presented. The awards for players’ positions were sometimes given to multiple players in one category, and some players won multiple awards. The total number of winners is 190.
