The United Soccer Coaches organization announced its All-Region teams and Oklahoma State had four selections along with one from Oklahoma.
OSU defender Kim Rodriguez was the only first team selection from either squad. She was one of four defenders picked along with two other Big 12 players in Cassie Hiatt from Texas Tech and Addisyn Merrick of Kansas.

Rodriguez adds the honor to her unanimous first team All-Big 12 selection earlier in the fall.
The second team had two Cowgirls with wingback Charme Morgan having been selected as a defender and Grace Yochum picked as one of four midfielders. Morgan had a stellar year in her return to action after missing last year with an knee injury.
Yochum was the best offensive player in the Big 12 until her injury after the Iowa State match. She led the Cowgirls with 11 goals in just 15 matches.
The third team featured a pair of Bedlam seniors that were wildly impactful for their teams during the last several years. OSU’s Jaci Jones and OU’s Kaylee Dao were both midfielder selections on the third team.
Jones led the Cowgirls in points with 26 and assists with 12. She was inside the top-10 nationally in assists.
Dao was by far the Sooners’ most impactful player. She had 13 goals and an assist to finish with 27 points, three times as many as any other OU player.
Another day, another honor for @kayleedao!
Dao was named to the All-Region Midwest third-team!
