KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Melissa Eldredge and Savannah Moody from Oklahoma City University collected NAIA women’s golf all-American accolades.

Eldredge, a sophomore from Eufaula, Okla., and Moody, a senior from Aledo, Texas, snared second-team all-American acclaim. The OCU pair became two-time all-Americans.

In 2017-18, Eldredge posted a 77.11 stroke average, four top-five finishes and five top-10 showings in 28 rounds. Eldredge buried 56 birdies and two eagles, the latter of which tied the Stars’ single-season record. She turned in her career-best runner-up finish in the Ottawa-Arizona Spring Invitational on Jan. 29-30 at the Wigwam Golf Resort in Litchfield Park, Ariz.

Eldredge became an all-Sooner Athletic Conference performer, snaring her second all-conference nod. She placed tied for fifth in the SAC Championships on April 20-22 at Lincoln Park Golf Course to earn all-tournament honors. Eldredge made second-team all-American as a freshman.

Moody compiled a 77.11 stroke average, 54 birdies, five rounds of par or better and a win among four top-five finishes this season. Moody’s victory came in the Ottawa-Arizona Spring Invitational. Moody reeled in second-place finishes in the Susie Maxwell Berning Classic, O-City Spring Classic and the SAC Championships. Her 5-under-par 67 in the Susie Maxwell Berning Classic fell one shot shy of OCU’s single-round best score and equaled OCU’s best round against par. Moody’s 70-73-74–217 in the O-City Classic ended a stroke behind the best 54-hole score in program history.

In two years with Oklahoma City, Moody supplied the Stars with 77.05 shots per 18 holes and 108 birdies in 55 rounds. Moody snagged first-team all-American, NAIA Championships all-tournament and academic all-SAC as a junior. Her scoring average ranks fifth on OCU’s career list.

The Stars took two victories this season, winning the Ottawa-Arizona Spring Invitational and the O-City Spring Classic on April 9-10 at Lincoln Park Golf Course. The NAIA Championships come to Lincoln Park the next two seasons.

OCU owns national championships won in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2013, 2014 and 2017.
