2003 & 2002: Missed both seasons due to a leg fracture that resulted in 20 surgeries and surgical proceddures.

2001: Took over starting goalkeeping duties eight games into the season and went on to have a record-setting freshman year replacing injured starter Kerry York... posted an 8-5-1 record and 2.5 shutouts with a 1.59 GAA in 18 games and 10 starts...played more than 1246 minutes while recording 62 saves and a .738 save percentage on 170 shots...her 62 saves were fifth-best in a single season and the second-best by a rookie keeper at FSU... 1.59 GAA set a freshman record for a single season at FSU and she also set a record for the third-most wins by a Seminole keeper in one season...finished the year with the fifth-best saves per game average in the ACC...saved the first three penalty kicks of her collegiate career and ended up saving five of the seven PK's she faced in 2001...after stepping in for York, Mims went on to start 10 straight games posting a 6-4 record during the regular season including wins over NCAA Tournament teams Kansas, Miami and Duke... had a huge ACC Tournament where she allowed just two goals in 195 minutes, saved 16 shots, faced 39 shots, recorded a save percentage of .889 and registered a GAA of 0.95 against No. 21 Maryland, No. 8 Virginia and No. 1 North Carolina. (vs. NC State) had a huge impact making back-to-back big saves in the 78th-minute including a sprawling save in OT...(vs. Florida) made her first start at eighth-ranked Florida in front of almost 3,500 fans and finished the night with five saves ...posted the first two shutouts of her collegiate career in road wins at South Florida and UCF...(vs. Duke) saved the game in OT for FSU when she made a diving stop on Katie Heaps' penalty kick, which allowed FSU to play on and get the golden goal just two minutes later...(vs. Virginia) her play in the ACC semifinal match against Virginia will go down as one of the greatest goalkeeping performances in FSU history. Mims and fellow freshman Kerry York combined to shutout the Cavs over 150 minutes. Mims set single-game career highs for saves (12), minutes (105) and shots faced (24). After stoning the first two shooters in the shootout, the PK's were tied at 2-2 when two-time ACC Player of the Year Lori Lindsey stepped to the line. The midfielder, who scored 17 goals in 2001, sent a hard shot right down the middle. Mims, who was already diving to her right, stuck her foot out and kick saved the shot allowing FSU to lock up a trip to its first-ever ACC Final.
