A Second Team All-Landmark Conference honoree, Stockinger registered 14 multi-hit games this season, with a high of three on two occasions.  She also drove in more than one run 11 times, topping out with six vs. Hiram.

In the field, Stockinger wrapped up the year with 81 assists, 35 putouts and a .913 fielding percentage.

In three seasons at CUA, Stockinger has totaled 129 hits and a .351 batting average.
