2008: Mankovits had a quality season, on and off the court, and was rewarded for it with placement on the Big Sky Conference All-Academic team. On the court, she enters 2009 with 25 career singles wins, the sixth-highest total in Eagle history. She also teamed with Kasey Knox for 11 doubles victories, all at the No. 1 position, to tie for second on that single-season chart. Mankovits went on an impressive hot streak in the middle of the campaign, recording six straight singles wins and tallying victories in eight of nine contests. Mankovits had a dominating 6-0, 6-0 victory in a 6-1 defeat of Weber State. That, coupled with an 8-4 doubles victory with Knox and singles and doubles wins in a 7-0 win against UC Santa Cruz, earned Mankovits Big Sky Player of the Week accolades. Perhaps the most impressive win of the year for Knox and Mankovits came against No. 46 Sacramento State's No. 1 doubles team, 8-5.

2007: Mankovits and Marie Demerath had 10 victories in 2007, tied for the seventh-most by an Eagle tandem in school history. That mark is also eighth on the career record charts. She had a perfect day in a 5-2 loss to Montana State, winning 6-2, 7-6 in singles and teaming with Demerath for an 8-4 doubles victory, their second of three wins in three days for the doubles tandem. In a 5-2 win over Utah State, she and Demerath clinched for Eastern the doubles point with an exciting 9-8 win. Then in singles action, she rallied for a 4-6, 7-6, 6-4 victory.

2006: Mankovits earned a perfect 6-0, 6-0 win early in the season over Lewis-Clark State's Alyson Peck at No. 4. In a 5-2 Big Sky Conference defeat of Idaho State, Mankovits achieved wins in both singles and doubles. She also played well in Eastern's 5-2 loss to Montana, as she and Iliana Petrova won at No. 2 doubles, and she was able to prevail at No. 5 singles. An impressive 8-3 win at No. 1 doubles helped the Eagles earn the doubles point against Northern Arizona.
