She ended with 20 wins vs. 2011 NCAA tourney returnees during the slate with other victories over BYU (twice), New Mexico State, Portland State (twice) and San Diego State (twice). She also became the second Duck pitcher to beat every league foe in a season since the league expanded to eight teams in 1995 (and joined former All-Pac-12 pick Ani Nyhus who achieved the feat in 2004)). Against then-No. 1 Alabama in nearly March in Eugene, she struck out a career-best 14 – the third-highest tally in school history. She has also ‘K’ed +8 batters in the NCAA Regional victory vs. BYU (10), and regular season wins over Boise State (10), Northwestern (9), No. 1 Cal (8). No. 14 UCLA (8), and Pitt (8).

She opened the postseason, by pitching all 21 innings in team’s NCAA Regional wins over Portland State and BYU (twice) to lead team to its third straight Super Regional trip. In the Texas Super Regional, she became the second hurler to beat the No. 8 Longhorns twice in '12 (joining Mizzou All-American Whitney Thomas) and staked the team’s first Super Regional wins in school history. She became the second Duck to ever post a WCWS win with her four-hit, four-strikeout complete game effort over No. 5 Tennessee (a 2-1 win). Boosted team at plate in last month of campaign, and went 2-for-7 in series vs. No. 14 UCLA, and went 2-for-3 with a run, RBI and walk in NCAA opener vs. Portland State. Also went 1-for-3 in finale win vs. Texas, and knocked in her first game-winning RBI of the season on second-inning fielder’s choice, and added a fifth-inning RBI single. Defensively for season, posted a .948 fielding mark (102 assists, seven putouts, six errors). At season's end, claimed team's Most Valuable Pitcher honor and the Players Choice Award.
