This year, the midfielder started all 16 games for the Panthers and wrapped up her four years starting all 71 games she played in, tied for most in program history.

Schiano is the program’s all-time leader in draw controls (255), ground balls (204), and caused turnovers (159). She also ranks fourth in total points (161) and goals (143).
