She amassed a 1.11 earned run average while striking out 306 in 177-1/3 innings. Ramirez earned Academic All Mid-South Conference honors with a 3.47 cumulative GPA.

Student-athletes are nominated by their school's sports information directors and voted on by CoSIDA members in their district. The nominees must maintain at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average, be a sophomore or higher in academic standing and be a starter or important reserve on their respective teams.

Whelan becomes the sixth Blue Raider to earn the honor, joining Emily Priar (2012), Travatia Bowden (2014), Cassie Kooker (2016, 2017, 2018), Callum Pilgrim (2019) and Abby Whelan (2020).
