She scored 14 goals in 15 games overall and added a team-high five assists to account for 33 points.

Shelton was named the Female Student-Athlete of the Month (October) by the College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) on Nov. 4 and made her way onto the Academic All-Conference Team after a strong fall semester in the classroom.
