Preikschas posted an 11-3 record in 2010-11 and has recorded 49 career wins. She and teammate Katie Eng is also the sixth-ranked doubles duo in the country. Preikschas led the 2010-11 women’s tennis team to a second consecutive Cal State Stanislaus Team Academic Award with the best combined GPA as a team.
Preikschas was one of two players from the CCAA to make the Capital One CoSIDA Academic All-District team, as voted by the sports information director, Cal State East Bay's Claire Pierce.
The Women's At-Large Team consists of student-athletes in a sport other than soccer, basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball, football, cross country or track and field.
