Botterill grew up playing ringette in Canada. As a teenager she competed in the sport for Team Manitoba in Grande Prairie, Alberta, at the 1995 Canada Winter Games, a national multi-sport competition for elite, Canadian amateur athletes.
Botterill attended Harvard University and played for the Harvard Crimson women's ice hockey program from 1998 to 2003. Harvard and several media outlets recognize Botterill as U.S. college ice hockey's career scoring leader (149 goals, 170 assists, 319 points). The NCAA does not recognize her record because women's hockey was not an NCAA-sanctioned sport in Botterill's first two college seasons. She scored at least one point in 112 of her 113 career college games (including a streak of 80 consecutive games). She was the first player to win the Patty Kazmaier Award twice as the top player in U.S. women's college hockey. Botterill set an NCAA record (since tied) for most points in one game with 10. This was accomplished on January 28, 2003 versus Boston College.
