He also hit 26-of-26 PAT attempts and finished second on the team in scoring with 62 points. Wiginton's 12 field goals were the second-most in Old Dominion Athletic Conference history for a single-season and ranked fifth in Division III.

Wiginton finishes his career as W&L's career leader in PAT's made (98) and attempted (103). He also ranks second all-time in career field goals made (23) and PAT percentage (.951).

Washington and Lee finished the 2001 season with a 5-5 overall record, 3-3 in the ODAC. The Generals finished in a four-way tie for second place in the ODAC.
