A record 7,351 softball players across seven membership divisions were honored for reaching a 3.5 grade-point average or higher as a student-athlete. NCAA Division I led the way with 1,843, while 1,825 in Division III garnered recognition followed by 1,268 Division II student-athletes. High School weighted and High School unweighted posted 751 and 609 honorees apiece. NAIA amassed 559 recipients and Junior College totaled 496.

She also took home second-team D2CCA and NFCA D2 All-Region, along with second-team All-MIAA honors for her play in the outfield.
