The 2016 Northeast-10 and D2CCA East Region Player of the Year, she set a school record for points in a season (56) and tying the school record for goals in a season (24). Santoro — who was named to the All-NE 10 first team for the first time in her career this season — as of November 30 was second in Division II in points, third in goals and sixth in both goals and points per game.

Sh helped the Panthers post a 16-4-1 record this season, winning the NE-10 regular season title and reaching the NCAA Division II East Regional final for the second straight year.
