2008: In addition to playing at a top level athletically, Reinstein was impressive in the classroom, as she earned Big Sky Conference All-Academic accolades. On the court, she ranked 10th in the league in service aces per set with 0.23. She had her best match of the season in one of the most important contests, helping the Eagles to a 3-1 win at Sacramento State to clinch the Big Sky’s regular-season title. In that contest, Reinstein had season highs in kills (13) and hitting percentage (.379, 13-2-29) as well as six blocks, tied for her second-best sum of the season. Her best block total was achieved in a 3-1 win over Washington State, eight. She also had six in a four-set victory over Northern Arizona on Nov. 6. Her season-high marks in service aces (3) were achieved in wins over Seattle University and Weber State on Oct. 21 and 25, respectively.

2007: Reinstein earned Big Sky Conference All-Academic honors in 2007. She was a blocking force with the Eagles, as her 0.91 bps average was the second-highest average on the team. That mark also placed her 397th among NCAA Division I players. Reinstein had an incredible sum of 11 putbacks in Eastern Washington’s 3-2 win over Northern Colorado on Sept. 27. She then nearly met that number with 10 against Portland State on Nov. 10, especially impressive considering the contest went just three sets (a 3-0 Eagle win). In a six-match stretch from Sept. 15-Oct. 2, Reinstein posted 4+ block totals in each match. On the season, she contributed four or more blocks 15 times.

2006: Redshirted.
