Northwestern Oklahoma State University senior softball players Stephanie Hines and McKenna Wilson were honored by the NAIA as being named 2011 Softball Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes. The duo was two of 326 softball student athletes recognized for the award.
“Both girls did a great job for us being student-athletes at Northwestern,” stated head softball coach Cody Hooper. “They represented the University well in everything they did.”
Hines, a first baseman from Marlow, finished her two-year career this past season. She was second on the team in batting average, hitting .297. An infielder and native of Elk City, Wilson batted .288 and led the team in on base percentage at .391. She was named to the Sooner Athletic Conference Gold Glove Team.
In order to be nominated by an institution's head coach, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status to qualify for this honor.
