Schultz also ranked in the top five in the conference in scoring (fifth) and blocks (third, 1.3 blocks per game).

Her 255 rebounds during the 2019-20 season marked the third-highest total in Thomas More program history. Schultz posted five double-doubles this season, including a stretch of four consecutive games in February in which she scored 20 or more points.

Schultz was a two-time Mid-South Conference Player of the Week winner, and she was named first team All Mid-South Conference and Academic All Mid-South Conference at the end of the season.

Schultz finished her career ninth in school history in points with 1,326 and seventh in rebounds with 738.

Thomas More finished with a 22-10 overall record and earned an at-large berth to the NAIA Tournament. A year ago, the Saints captured the NCAA Division III national championship before transitioning to the NAIA for the 2019-20 season.
