In 2013, Price was named SUNYAC Sandra Hollander Coach of the Year after guiding the Lakers to a 17-20 overall record and a 9-9 conference record to earn the second consecutive sixth seed in the SUNYAC Championships. She took the Lakers to three SUNYAC Championships during her four-year reign. In the 2013 conference tournament, the Lakers were the first No. 6 seed in SUNYAC history to knock of the No. 1 seed. In three seasons, she has coached four All-SUNYAC players, including First Team All-SUNYAC and ECAC Upstate All-Star First Team honoree Tori Trovato.
