During the course of the season, she moved into 14th place on the program's all-time kills list with 947 kills through the first two years of her collegiate career. She was named to the all-tournament teams at the Jayhawk Classic (4.08 k/s, .308 hitting percentage) and Middle Tennessee Invitational (62 total kills, .322 hitting percentage). In addition to her kill numbers, Norton also led the Razorbacks with 4.27 points per set, eight double-double efforts and six matches with at least 20 kills.
