Prior to the 2019-20 campaign, the senior was named a D3hoops.com Second Team Preseason All-American, the highest ranking by any HCAC women's basketball student-athlete. She also garnered back-to-back First Team All-Region honors while being named a member of the HCAC All-Tournament team for two consecutive seasons.
