Thompson, a junior from Edmond, Okla., has maintained a 3.62 cumulative grade-point average studying marketing. Thompson turned in a 78.82 stroke average this season for the Stars.

To become an NAIA scholar-athlete, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved junior academic status.

Wilson, a sophomore from Owasso, Okla., boasts of a 4.00 GPA working towards an exercise science degree. Wilson had a 78.57 stroke average while earning second-team NAIA all-American and all-Sooner Athletic Conference in 2014-15.

The women’s at-large team includes student-athletes from bowling, fencing, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, rowing, skiing, swimming, tennis and water polo.
