SHAWNEE – Oklahoma Baptist outside hitter Mikayla Watson was named to the Great American Conference All-Tournament Team following her performance in two matches last week in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Watson, a redshirt freshman from Whitesboro, Texas, averaged 4.86 kills and 2.14 digs in the Lady Bison's inaugural appearance at the GAC postseason tournament. She finished with 17 kills and 10 digs for her team-high 21st double-double of the season in a win over Ouachita. Watson also paced OBU with 17 kills and added five digs in the season finale against Harding.
Watson becomes the first Lady Bison volleyball player to earn a postseason award from the GAC. She was previously named Second Team All-GAC for her accomplishments during the regular season.
