In conference play, saw action in 17 of the team's 20 contests, and multiple sets in six of them (including all three in sweep of then-returning NCAA champion UCLA).

Logged two aces vs. NCAA tourney advancers then-No. 3 USC (4 sets) and Liberty (2 sets), and also vs. Arizona State (twice, 4 sets in each) and Cal Poly (1 set). Had her best assist:set ratio in team's sweep of Seattle with her 5 in 1 set of play. Her season high assist tally (6) came in team's comeback vs. Washington State, and she played all five sets after starting the match.
