AUSTIN, Texas – Katie-Lee Wilson from national champion Oklahoma City University joined an elite group of three-time CoSIDA academic all-Americans, while teammate Caroline Goodin took her second academic all-American nod.

Wilson, a senior from Owasso, Okla., became OCU’s third three-time CoSIDA academic all-American alongside men’s golfer Matthew Cheung (2015-17) and softball player Jamie Rateliff (2013-15). Goodin and Wilson made the first team of the CoSIDA academic all-America college-division at-large team.

Goodin and Wilson contributed to Oklahoma City winning four conference crowns and two national championships. The Stars have captured national titles in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2013, 2014 and 2017.

Goodin is a senior accounting major from Oklahoma City who carries a 3.95 cumulative grade-point average. She helped the Stars win the program’s eighth NAIA national championship as the team led from wire-to-wire, finishing with an eight-stroke advantage. Goodin earned first-team NAIA all-American honors for her efforts as she carried a 76.92 stroke average with 48 birdies and one eagle.

An exercise science major with a 4.00 GPA, Wilson provided the Stars with an 83.67 stroke average as a senior. Wilson turned in a season-best round of 79 in the O-City Classic. She is a two-time first-team academic all-American after taking second-team honors as a sophomore.

Matthew Cheung of the Oklahoma City University men’s golf team garnered CoSIDA academic all-American honors for the third straight season.

Cheung, a senior from Queensland, Brisbane, Australia, nabbed first-team at-large college division honors for the second year in a row after being named to the second team in 2015. Graduating with a degree in finance, Cheung accumulated a 3.92 grade point average this year. He also is a two-time academic all-Sooner Athletic Conference choice, a three-time academic all-district member, two-time NAIA scholar-athlete honoree and an all-America scholar as award by the Golf Coaches Association of America.
