Seniors Lisa Kriener (St. Ansgar, Iowa), Anne O'Neil (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) and Tracy Paustian (Walcott, Iowa) earned first-team honors for the third-straight year. Junior Brittany Wilkins (Arlington, Neb.), a second-team pick last season, is also a three-time honoree.

Selection to the academic first team requires a grade point average of 3.2 or higher, while second-team honorees must have at least a 3.0. Student-athletes must participate in 60 percent of the team's scheduled contests. True freshmen and transfers are not eligible to receive recognition in their first year of competition.
