2019 was a special season for the Orange & Black and for Siqueira. The Warhawks earned their first winning season in program history, going 17-16 with a 7-9 record in Gulf South Conference action. AUM won eight home games in 2019 and finished sixth in the conference which qualified them to participate in the GSC Championships. The Warhawks played the Valdosta State Lady Blazers in its first-ever tournament game and defeated VSU 3-1 for their inaugural GSC postseason victory. AUM moved on to face West Georgia in the GSC Quarterfinals but the Orange & Black faltered in a five-set thriller to the Wolves. Siqueira helped outside hitter Sommer Rhea earn second team all-GSC honors which marked the first postseason award for an AUM volleyball player.
In her first season at the helm, Siqueira led the Orange & Black to a nine-win season, including a seven-game win streak, which stood as the program’s longest win streak in history. The Warhawks were able to defeat GSC rival Mississippi College in straight sets on Oct. 26, 2018, marking the first time in school history AUM was able to sweep a conference opponent.
