Her 575 points for the season were first in the FCSAA and seventh in NJCAA Division
I and her 19.2 points per game were first in the state and 22nd nationally.

Returning sophomore, captain and guard Demetrius McReynolds and sophomore transfers guard Payton Hulsey and center Kyle Meyer will participate in the Mullen Top 100 Camp, considered the most prestigious Junior College event in the nation. It will be held July 12-13 in St. Louis, Missouri.
