During the indoor track season, she won the OAC 1,000-meter run in a time of 3:03.11, also setting a Marietta College facility record and was second in the 1-mile run.

At the 2010 OAC Outdoor Championships, Chinn was named the OAC Women's Distance Runner of the Meet as she ran on the first place 4x800-meter relay team and won both the 3,000-meter steeplechase and the 5,000-meter run. She provisionally qualified for the NCAA Division III National Meet in the 1,500-meter run and 3,000-meter steeplechase. In the 3,000-meter steeplechase, Chinn set a school-record and was national runner-up in a time of 10:30.53, earning All-America honors. Chinn's time broke the school record by eight seconds and bettered her personal best by 15 seconds. She became the third woman in B-W history to earn All-America honors in the steeplechase.
