Clarion was 14-2 in its final 16 games of the season. A tri-captain, she led the team with 168 rebounds and was second on the team with 331 points and 77 steals. A First Team PSAC-West selection, she was also voted team mvp. McAdoo posted 1,010 career points and 629 rebounds, both #1 in the program when she graduated. She also had 177 career steals.
