Dordt Women's Basketball player Ashtyn Veerbeek has been named second team NAIA All-American. The junior from Western Christian averaged a double-double with 15.4 points and 10.8 rebounds per game in her first season with the Lady Defenders after transferring from Nebraska. She also blocked 62 shots while at the same time leading the team with 38 three pointers and 27 steals. Veerbeek's rebound and block totals paced the GPAC this season by a wide margin.

Also from the GPAC, Morningside's Sierra Mitchell made the first team while the Mustangs Sophia Peppers and Concordia's Taylor Cockerill received honorable mention accolades.
