Marisa was named to All-SoCon First Team at first base, ranks among the top batters in the conference: slugging percentage (.751), on-base percentage (.490), home runs (16), RBIs (54), doubles (16) and walks (32). She is tied for first in runs (49), second in hits (63), third in batting average (.373) and tied for fourth in hit by pitches (eight). In the nation she places 25th in homers, 24th in total bases (127), 36th in slugging percentage, 56th in on-base percentage and 82nd in runs per game (0.8).

The UNCG Lady Spartans followed up their regular season championship with the SoCon tournament championship, sending them to the South Carolina to face the No. 9 ranked Gamecocks in a NCAA Regional making Marisa our program’s first player to play in a Division I regional.
