Cottam started in all 17 matches for Simmons in the backfield and helped the Sharks’ defense post a 1.33 goals against average that ranked fifth among GNAC teams.

Cottam also helped Simmons post four shutouts and limit opponents to one or fewer goals in nine matches. She also contributed offensively with a career-high five points on a goal and three assists.
