A human development and family science major, sophomore Alyssa O’Neil (West Linn, Ore.) earned the Beavers’ lone second team distinction – her first career honor.
Senior Kiersten Sambrailo (Watsonville, Calif.) and sophomores Tami Brown (Eugene, Ore.), Megan McBride (Auburn, Wash.) and Camille Saxton (Balzac, Alberta) rounded out the Oregon State selections with honorable mention status. The honor is Sambrailo’s second.
