Edmondson boasts a 4.00 GPA while majoring in Kinesiology Clinical at CSU. The Dickson, Tenn. native receives the honors after being named the Big South Scholar Athlete of the Year in both indoor and outdoor track & field.

Edmondson won the Big South indoor pentathlon, took third in the indoor high jump, and helped the Bucs win the 4x400 relay at the conference championships. Come outdoor season, Edmondson ran the school's all-time third fastest 100m hurdles time of 14.05 and broke her PR (school's second fastest) in the 400m hurdles, crossing the line in 60.55. Additionally, she ran on both the 4x100 and 4x400 relay teams that each reached the podium at the conference championships.
