A year in which the team won the MIAC playoff championship for the first time in school history and advanced to the NCAA playoffs for the first time since the 1996 season. The Cobbers also won their first round playoff game which was another first in program history. Concordia finished the season with a 26-8 record and an 8-3 mark in the MIAC. Concordia was the only school from the MIAC to earn a spot in the NCAA tournament, and finished the year with the third highest win total in school history.

Barten finished the regular season with a team-high 452 kills, a .327 hitting percentage and 158 blocks. It is the third straight year that she has led the Cobbers in both categories. Her block total tied the school record for total blocks in a single season. She earned All-MIAC honors for the third straight season. She was named the MVP of the Saint Benedict Tournament and also helped push Concordia to the brink of beating MIAC regular season champion St. Thomas. Barten now has 1,040 career kills which places her fifth on the school's all-time list. She also has amassed 381 blocks in her three years, which is second on the school's all-time chart.
