Her high-water marks for the conference slate came when she put down 15 kills in the final match of the season vs. St. Benedict and when she posted nine blocks against St. Olaf – both teams advanced to the MIAC playoffs.  

Carney finished third in the MIAC in attack percentage in conference matches. She was also fourth in total blocks. Carney also finished the league year with 13 solo blocks which was second among all MIAC players.    

In all matches Carney had 224 kills, hit 216 and came away with 66 blocks. She has now hit at least .200 in all three of her collegiate seasons. Carney has 647 kills in her Cobber career and has 193 total blocks.
