She has helped anchor the defense this season with a career-high 11 starts and scored the game-winning goal in a 2-0 victory versus West Liberty in the season-opener. She also earned the D2ADA Academic Achievement Award as a sophomore and is a two-time Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Scholar-Athlete honoree.
Billey boasts a 4.00 cumulative grade-point average (GPA) while pursuing a degree in mechatronics engineering technology with a minor in mathematics.
