The only head coach in the seven-year history of the program, she has an overall record of 112-15 with a 39-2 mark in conference games.

Bernardi led the team and conference with 51 assists and 115 points while being second in goals with 64. It is the third straight season she has earned All-OAC honors as a first teamer in 2018 and 2019 while being on the second team in 2017.
