Through her career, she posted a 11.8 points per game average and also shot an impressive 53.5 percent for her career from the floor. Stefansic was dominant in rebounding as well and stills ranks fourth all-time at Malone with 914 rebounds for an average of 7.9 per game.

She was voted to the First Team All-AMC as both a junior and senior and was the team's most valuable player as a senior.

The Pioneers' record during Stefansic's four years with the program was 81-36.

Stefansic went on to earn a Master's degree in Business and Sport Managment in 2011 at Alabama's Columbia Southern University. She is currently a physical education teacher at Winton Woods High School located in Cincinnati. She lives in Mason, Ohio.
