Local and state briefs

Whitney McAteer was named to the 2013 Capital One Academic All-America Women’s At-Large First Team, the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced on Thursday.

The Capital One Academic All-America Division II Women’s At-Large program includes the sports of bowling, crew, fencing, field hockey, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, swimming and diving, tennis, and water polo.

McAteer, a speech and language pathology major, carried a 4.0 grade-point average into her final collegiate semester and was the only student-athlete from the MIAA, male or female, to be named to an at-large first team.

The former Jenks standout helped the Northeastern State women’s golf program to an eighth-place finish at the 2013 NCAA Championships. She landed in a tie for 35th after posting a 72-hole total of 312. She previously finished in a tie for 21st at the 2013 NCAA Central Super Regional with a 248 total over three rounds.

As a sophomore, McAteer was named an NGCA All-American after posting an average of 76.5 strokes over the course of the season. She has also been named an NGCA Academic All-American each of her first three years.

Shock re-signs ex-Sooner Courtney Paris

TULSA — The Tulsa Shock have re-signed former University of Oklahoma All-American Courtney Paris.

The Shock announced the signing Thursday. The team had cut Paris from its training camp roster in May after 6-foot-8 center Elizabeth Cambage decided to rejoin the team after initially saying she wouldn't play in the WNBA this season.

Cambage is currently recovering from an ankle sprain and is expected to return next week.

Paris averaged 5.0 points and 7.3 rebounds in three preseason games for Tulsa. She played in 23 games as a reserve last season for Tulsa.
