Tufi ranks No. 1 all-time among Alaskans at the NCAA D1 level with 35 career home runs and 154 RBIs; she ranks No. 2 in school history in both categories.

She holds the single-season school record with six saves in 2015. She ranks Nos. 4 and 5 in the record book in single-season home runs, clubbing 12 in 2015 and 11 in 2016.
