A New England Women's & Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) All-Conference first team selection in 2018, Negron appeared in 76 career games and made 75 starts during her four-year career in Blue. Negron scored eight goals and registered 16 assists in her career, playing as a midfielder for three years before transitioning to defense during her senior year. A two-year captain and a 2016-17 NEWMAC All-Sportsmanship Team selection, Negron tallied a pair of assists and a defensive save during her senior campaign and quickly established herself as one of the top defenders in the NEWMAC, starting all 17 games for the Blue in 2018.
