OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City University’s Elia Folch and Caroline Goodin headlined a group of five Stars to earn NAIA women’s golf All-American honors after leading OCU to its seventh NAIA championship.

Folch and Goodin were first-team selections while Kailey Campbell and Anna Mikish received second-team acclaim and Katie-Lee Wilson earned third-team honors.

Folch, a senior from Barcelona, Spain, earned her second first-team award by finishing runner-up in the NAIA Championships for the second year in a row. Folch capped her OCU career with tournaments wins in the Claud Jacobs Invitational, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Island Classic, Central Oklahoma KickingBird Classic and the Sooner Athletic Conference Championships. Folch was named SAC golfer of the week four times this season and was named SAC player of the year.

Goodin, a freshman from Oklahoma City, finished eighth and made the all-tournament team at the NAIA Championships. Goodin finished in the top 10 five times this season including third-place finishes in the Claud Jacobs Invitational and the SAC Championships. Goodin was named SAC freshman of the year this season.

Campbell, a freshman from Oktaha, Okla., tied for 15th place in the NAIA Championships and landed on the all-tournament team. Campbell notched five top-15 finishes this season including eighth-place finishes in the Susie Maxwell Berning Classic and the Claud Jacobs Invitational.

Mikish, a freshman from Choctaw, Okla., carded a team-high 11 birdies and tied for 20th place in the NAIA Championships. Mikish turned in a pair of 11th-place finishes in the Susie Maxwell Berning Classic and the Claud Jacobs Invitational to go along with a sixth-place performance in the SAC Championships.

Wilson, a freshman from Owasso, Okla., made a pair of birdies and pared the final three holes in regulation in the NAIA Championships. Wilson finished in the top 10 twice this season including a fifth-place finish in the Claud Jacobs Invitational and an eighth-place performance in the SAC Championships.

OCU tops NAIA women’s golf with seven NAIA championships. The Stars have captured NAIA titles in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2013 and now 2014.
