2012 (Freshman): Genovese started 60 of Mizzou's 61 games in 2012, splitting time between second and third base before settling in as the team's starting shortstop halfway through the season. Her ability to play anywhere on the field helped her become the first freshman in the history of the Big 12 to win Defensive Player of the Year, marking the second straight season that a Tiger has earned the honor. She led the team in triples with three, was third on the team with 40 runs scored and hit seven doubles while adding four home runs. Her first career homer was an inside-the-park home run against Nebraska at the Cathedral City Classic, where she finished the weekend with six runs scored and five driven in. Her first multi-hit game came against SEMO, finishing 2-for-3 with a pair of runs. Against Alcorn State on May 11, Genovese went 2-for-2 with a triple, a home run, two runs and three driven in while also adding a walk. In the Big 12 opener against Kansas, Genovese picked up two hits, including a double, drove in two and scored twice. She doubled in four consecutive games between March 23-28, three of which came against the Texas A&M Aggies. In the second game of the series with Texas, Genovese helped the Tigers mount a seven run rally in the seventh inning with a three run homer that came on a 3-0 count. She drove in a pair of runs during the Iowa State series and doubled in two in Mizzou's game two win over Oklahoma State on May 12. Honors: Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year
