She was able to be back on the field midway through conference play. During her first game back, Paupst scored the game-winner to help Radford win a championship.

Even though she has struggled with COVID-19, Paupst has been able to keep a community atmosphere alive with the team.

Paupst also tied for the fourth most-game winning assists in the Big South (4). She assisted on a career high five goals and was featured in the Big South’s Top 10 Individual Offensive Statistics in 7/9 categories.

For her career, she has 19 career goals with 46 points.

Prior to the 2020-21 season, Paupst was named the preseason Big South Player of the Year.
