Ebba Moberg, freshman, Northeastern State

Moberg finished the week strong at the NCAA Championship in Denver. The freshman shot a 68 in the final round of the four during the competition and moved up 33 spots on the final day to tie for 15th individually with a 9-over 297. Her performance helped the RiverHawks to an eighth place finish as a team. The 68 was the second-lowest round in school history and the best ever by an NSU women’s golfer at the NCAA Championship.

Nathan Thompson, senior, Oklahoma Baptist

The Bison baseball team hosted the NCCAA Central Region tournament and Thompson, a senior, may have saved his best performance for his last at Bison Field at Ford Park. Thompson threw a complete-game, seven-inning no-hitter as OBU defeated McMurry, 10-0. He struck out 16 and walked only two on the night and picked up his eighth win of the year. OBU went on to win the regional, outscoring its opponents, 36-2, in four games and will move on to the NCCAA national tournament.
