2009 (Junior)
Fulmer was once again one of Nebraska's biggest offensive threats, scoring four goals and adding three assists for the second consecutive season. She tied for the Huskers' best shot-on-goal percentage (.550) by scoring her four goals in 11 attempts on net. Fulmer was credited for game-winning goals in wins over Green Bay and Kansas and accounted for her season assist total in back-to-back wins over Lamar (2) and North Dakota (1) on Sept. 4 and Sept. 11. Her first goal of the season also came against Lamar, as she tied her career-high point total with four in the contest.

She also posted a goal in Nebraska's 3-0 victory over Texas Tech on Oct. 19. Fulmer's four goals ranked third on the team, while her three assists ranked second.

In the classroom, Fulmer was one of 15 Huskers who captured academic All-Big 12 honors, as she earned first-team accolades.

Fulmer played in 17 of Nebraska's 19 contests in 2007. Making the most of her time on the field, Fulmer averaged better than one shot per game and amassed 18 total shots, including seven on goal.

Fulmer assisted on a Jaclyn White goal in the 39th minute and got one of her own in the 66th minute.
