In the NAIA, Oklahoma Baptist nabbed the most women’s honors, while Concordia led the men. Meanwhile Monroe Community College picked up 5 of the 8 Scholar All-America awards given out in the NJCAA, the Junior College athletic league.

The Oklahoma Baptist women picked up 7 Scholar All-America honors, topping Concordia and Saint Mary by two on the women’s side. Concordia had the most men on the list, though, with 6 total.

Between men and women, Oklahoma Baptist again led, putting 12 total athletes on the list to Concordia’s 11.
