She was the only women's soccer player from the West Coast Conference included on any of the three teams.

As a starting forward, Payne led the team with 34 shots while contributing the second-most goals on the team and nine assists. The five goals Payne added this season put her at 11th place on BYU's all-time career goals leaderboard.

Payne helped lead the team to an 11-5-3 season record and a 5-2-1 conference record in its first year with the WCC.

Also included in Payne's postseason honors is an All-West Region Second Team award, an All-Conference Academic award and an All-WCC Second Team ward.
