The sophomore from Blaine, Minnesota was second in the country in total points scored at 758 for the year; she also was a statistical leader defensively, finishing tied for 7th overall in steals-per-game with 4.1 a contest. Overall, Homola was key in the ARCC season mark of 22-6 and a MCAC Southern Division 10-2 record. ARCC advanced to the Region XIIIA post-season as the No. 2 seed where they earned a runner-up finish, losing to Western Technical College, 68-62 in the region championship game.
