Eleven members of the OU women's gymnastics team were named to the Academic All-Big 12 First Team on Thursday.

Seniors Maggie Nichols, Jade Degouveia and Bre Showers represent the program's graduating class on the team, while juniors Jordan Draper, Evy Schoepfer, Karrie Thomas, Anastasia Webb and Carly Woodard also made the academic squad.

Additionally, sophomores Emma LaPinta, Allie Stern and Olivia Trautman also joined the squad, giving the Sooners the most academic team selections in the conference.

First team members are seniors, juniors and sophomores who have maintained a grade point average of 3.2 or higher while participating in 20 percent of their teams' scheduled contests.

In OU head coach K.J. Kindler's 14 years at the helm of the team, at least five Sooners have qualified each year.
