Eleven Sooners were named to the All-Big 12 Academic First Team on Wednesday.
Every eligible gymnast was named to the team. Qualifications for the first team include a grade point average of 3.2 or higher, either cumulative or in the previous two semesters. Gymnasts also have to compete in at least 20 percent of their team’s meets to make the team.
Seniors Anastasia Webb, Karrie Thomas, Evy Schoepfer, Carly Woodard and Jordan Draper earned awards for the third year in a row. Juniors Emma LaPinta, Allie Stern and Olivia Trautman and sophomores Vanessa Deniz, Jenna Dunn and Ragan Smith also made the team.
