Steen graduated Memphis as one of the most decorated Lady Tigers in history. In addition to being named first team all-conference in 2011 and 2012, she was also a member of the second team in 2010. She was a five-time C-USA Golfer of the week, three-time member of the C-USA All-Academic team and three-time NGCA All-America scholar.
