The 6-foot Hartman enjoyed a tremendous sports season. In the fall, she was 2A player of the year by the Kansas Volleyball Coaches Association. Spearville finished as state runner-up to Alma-Wabaunsee. This winter, she led the Lancers to a 24-0 record and final four showing in Class 2A. Spearville moved from 1A to 2A and opened the year tenth in the rankings before steadily moving up. The speedy, athletic Hartman finished with 21.4 points, six rebounds, 3.2 steals and 2.4 assists a contest. She was very efficient shooting with 50 percent from the field, 35 from the 3-point range and 75 percent from the foul line.
Hartman finished fourth in all classes of Kansas in scoring. Notably, Hartman scored 37 points on 14 of 24 shooting in a 77-52 sub-state title game win at Elkhart. In the first round of state, Hartman had 25 points in a 55-41 victory versus Pittsburg Colgan. An Emporia State signee, the left-handed Hartman averaged 17 points and 6.4 rebounds in her career and tallied 1,379 total points.
