OU has now captured at least five spots on the Scholastic All-America listing for 12 straight years. Under head coach K.J. Kindler, Oklahoma gymnasts have earned a total of 88 awards from the WCGA.
For the fourth consecutive season, Stefani Catour earned a spot on the list, while rising seniors Brenna Dowell and Nicole Lehrmann picked up honors for the third time.
Maggie Nichols and Brehanna Showers were named All-Americans for the second time, while AJ Jackson and Natalie Brown were first time honorees. 2018 freshmen Jordan Draper and Evy Schoepfer both picked up Scholastic All-America honors following their first collegiate season.
To earn WCGA Scholastic All-America honors, a gymnast must attain a cumulative or yearly grade point average of 3.5 or better.
Ten Sooners were named Academic All-Big 12 selections in 2018, the most in the conference.
