Lisa Marie Rioux and Ayumi Miyamoto earned All-American status at the NCAA tournament.


After finishing No. 10 in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association rankings, accolades are continuing to roll in for Oklahoma State. In the NCAA Division 1 individual  doubles championships, No. 12 Lisa Marie Rioux and Ayumi Miyamoto successfully became All-Americans  after winning two required matches. It is the pair’s second All-American distinction.

On Wednesday evening, the duo secured All-American status in straight sets over No. 4 Carol Lee and Kate Sharabura of Georgia Tech. 

This is the second time in their careers that they have been named All-Americans, as 2020 was the first they secured those honors as doubles partners.

Head coach Chris Young expressed his excitement for his two players via Twitter.

“So proud of these two. All-Americans for a second time and they aren’t done yet.”

On Thursday afternoon, the duo defeated No. 6 Jayci Goldsmith and Tatiana Makarova of Texas A&M in three sets to advance to the final four.
